ISSUE

When sending a meeting request, the meeting appears on attendees’ calendar, but is missing from the organizers calendar. 

This issue occurs when a property on the original calendar item points to the drafts folder. This behavior has also been observed when a meeting item is created, saved, and sent much later. 

This only occurs when the organizer’s calendar is of Type MAPI which is expected for Primary account calendars. Shared Calendars can be Type REST. To confirm the Type, right click on the Calendar folder and select Properties.

WORKAROUND

  • Disable AutoSave by following the steps listed here: Turn automatic saving of draft messages on or off or change how often drafts are saved

  • If the issue occurs on a Shared Calendar, you can Turn on shared calendar improvements. After enabling shared calendar improvements, verify the calendar has been updated to Type (REST). If the shared calendar does not update, remove it and add it back using the following steps:

    • Right-click on the shared calendar and select Delete Calendar.

    • Close and restart Outlook.

    • From the Home ribbon, in the Calendar module, select Open Calendar > Open SharedCalendar.

    • Enter the name of the person who shared their calendar with you.

    • Select OK to close the dialog.
