Hi,

In Outlook you can set this:
Automatically accept meeting requests and process cancellations

See here what I meen:

http://dizzyit.com/2014/03/19/auto-accept-decline-meeting-requests-outlook/

How to do this in Office 365 powershel.

I know how to connect to Office 365 Exchange powershell so it is only the specific command I'm looking for.

And this is NOT for a ressource mailbox. It is for at normal user mailbox.

I believe this is a client-side setting, which means it is configured within Outlook itself and not PowerShell, so I don't think there's a server-side equivalent setting. This means Outlook needs to be running at all times in order for the meeting request to be automatically accepted or declined.

To confirm this, enable the setting in Outlook then close out of Outlook complete. Have someone send you a test meeting request and see if it gets automatically accepted (it shouldn't) by monitoring the other person's mailbox or by checking your calendar on your mobile device or webmail.

Now when you next open Outlook, the pending meeting request should get auto-accepted/declined which confirms it is a client-side setting.

I'm having a hard time finding an article from Microsoft which confirms this though.

I have just verifyed and you have right...

Why do I want this.

It is for private use. We are a Family with 5 members. Ontil now I have used GeniusConnect to sýncronize over calenders but it is sometimes unstable.

We have our mail on Office365. I have created a groupe. And when we want to have a appointment in all the calenders I just invite the groupe.

But It schould run automaticly.

I could make the change in there Outlook manully... but if I could do it with powershell it would more easely.

Another is to give rights directly to the calender object with this command I think:

Set-MailboxCalendarFolder xxxxx

The right schoul be create and change - delete own....

Hope it make sence.

The Set-MailboxCalendarFolder cmdlet only modifies the permissions on a calendar, it still does not give you the ability to automatically accept meeting requests.

The other members of your family will have the ability to open your calendar either through webmail or Outlook to create calendar entries. The problem with this method is that they won't see the calendar entry as it was created in your calendar as an appointment, and not in their calendar as a meeting.

As you can see there's still no automatic acceptance of meeting requests going on.

Your best bet would be to create a new resource mailbox in Office 365 (as these mailboxes do not take up a license) and then add this calendar to all of your family members' devices (be it Outlook, an iPhone, Android-based device or webmail).
