Office365 group calendar - turn off edit notification
When I add new event to group calendar I can turn off option: "Send an invitation to the group". But I can't turn it off, when I'm editing my event.
I would like to set default group setting to not posting notifications about group calendar events.
It also would be nice, if I could just unmark this option while editing.
I am having the same issue! We only need notification emails to go out to those invited, NOT the whole group. The ability to toggle the "send a meeting invitation to group members" needs to be available for the creator of the event.
2 years later... and no feedback. Ouch..
Yes, this is badly need. I have a Flow that creates events multiple times a day, and each time a personal calendar get a copy :( Sadly, the UI option (Send a meeting invite to group members) is NOT exposed in Flow or programmatically which forces us to NOT use groups.
WE NEED THIS NOW!!!
I would like to ask concerning the Office 365 groups.
So if we have multiple users in a group, and one user wants to update the calendar, without the whole team getting the notification.
Is there a way to resolve this issue?
Thank you very much, Jean :)

In combination with the fact that Group Calendars are not available as a normal calendar within the Outlook Client (Mac), this default setting within the OWA client is a show-stopper for enabling shared group calendars across our organisation. Could the admins please let us know when this request will be actioned as part of the roadmap.
Would like to get All Group Members removed from the recipient list when inviting users to an appointment.
Not everyone needs to receive those.
Yes! Please add this feature. Hundreds of emails every time someone enters something in the calendar is very frustrating.
I agree with Piotr (pkrzeszewski)
In addition, I would like to have a global setting to enable/disable "Send an invitation to the group" We sometimes need to schedule a huge line up of appointments. This will become annoying if we have to uncheck the box every time we are scheduling a huge list of appointments for both the scheduler and the recipient (when we do not remember to un-check the box).
Hopefully, you will be able to add this feature. Thank you.
Need Group calendar with 2 functions:
1. Notice board where all can see group events (but not being notified),
2. Possibility to send calendar notification when need to notify the group (of new event or change in it).
It is crutial in case of larger organisation that by default it is #1.
And then when I want to enable it as by default for the group to be auto-notice sending, then I have such option available.
Yes, please re-enable the ability to deselect the check next to "Send an invitation to the group." This used to work a couple of years ago.
We need to turn off or turn on the notification for each event in group calendars
This would also be helpful because the default status is "away" and so my calendar becomes blocked, which then requires me to go into the individual event and change the status to "free." PLEASE ADD THIS FEATURE!!!
Please add this feature as off by default with the ability to turn it on. who wants to receive 5 emails about john doe adding and editing events in the calendar.
We would also appreciate that feature. It is annoying when you are a member of a few groups an receive all the calendar invitations and alerts from all the groups.
This feature would be amazing. I'm struggling with a staff of 75 members right now who all share a group calendar. The notifications, the confusion and the frustration this is causing is unreal.

My company wants this feature, too! It's annoying as heck...
This feature would be greatly appreciated, especially since the functionality CAN be achieved using the installed version of Outlook for Macintosh.
I too would like this feature.
If I create a new event I'm able to untick 'send invitation to the group', but if I then try to add individual people, the tick reappears and is greyed out so I can't remove it!
I think I must be missing something!
