Outlook unexpectedly stops prompting and automatically sends Meeting updates to all attendees

Last Updated: May 10, 2018

ISSUE

Starting with Version 1802 (Build 9029.2167) Outlook introduced an update that treats changes to a meeting’s attachments, subject, and body as updates which must be sent to all attendees.  Based on customer feedback, Outlook will remove body changes from triggering updates to all attendees.

There are two types of unexpected behavior that may occur until the fix is implemented:

  • When adding users to a meeting, you do not get the prompt below to send updates only to added or deleted attendees.  This may happen even if you didn’t intentionally make changes to the body of the meeting.

      Send update to attendees

  • When you add notes to an existing meeting and click Save, you are unable to save the changes without sending an update.

      Save changes and send update

STATUS - Monthly Channel: FIXED

This issue is fixed in Monthly Channel Version 1804 (Build 9226.2114) and higher. To get the latest update immediately, open Outlook and choose File > Office Account > Update Options > Update Now.

STATUS - Semi Annual Channel (Targeted): FIXED

This issue is fixed in Semi Annual Channel (Targeted) Version 1803 (Build 9126.2191) and higher. To get the latest update immediately, open Outlook and choose File > Office Account > Update Options > Update Now
