Updating Attendees on Group Meetings

meeting

You may need to update a regular or recurring calendar meeting invite for various reasons.  Occasionally folks leave, retire or take a position with another department in the University or new employees arrive.  It is important that meetings be updated as staff changes occur.  Luckily, this is easy to do and does not require canceling and recreating the meeting.

To remove a staff member or group from a meeting

  1. In your Calendar, open the meeting invitation you want to edit. If it’s a recurring meeting, Outlook asks you to choose whether you want to edit the entire series or just the one occurrence.
