Updates to Office 365 Group calendar events are disregarding ‘send an invitation to the group’ check box
In an Office 365 Group calendar you can create a new meeting invite and uncheck the ‘send an invitation to the group’ check box. As expected, this will stop anyone in the group receiving the invite notification.
However, if you need to make any updates to that event (it doesn’t matter what update you make) and click save, a notification will be sent to all members in the group. In addition to this, the Group will also add the calendar event to the personal calendar of the individual who has made the update.
This is not an intuitive user experience.
Three parts to this proposed solution:
1. Change the experience to ensure that the calendar event respects the initial setup upon creation i.e. if the ‘send an invitation to the group’ check box is unchecked, remain this way even if the event is updated and don't send notifications.
2. When adding additional members to the event ensure the ‘send an invitation to the group’ check box is not greyed out and we can make the choice to check or uncheck.
3. Furthermore, can the ‘send an invitation to the group’ be unchecked by default.
