We host our Exchange and Lync community calls and send the invites out via DL’s. Generally this has been good and a major improvement over trying to maintain the list of invitees within the event itself. However, it’s far from perfect, people end up with old/stale invites, don’t get updates, get forward the invite so never receive updates etc. The solution, to my mind, is a calendar that people subscribe to – that way... more »

We would have TEAM calendars that would have your team information on it and your personal calendar would allow you to add / remove the team calendars from view. This would be very helpful when you go on vacation... more »
If non-invitation email is received in Outlook with scheduling information, user would have the option to go to the File tab and save it as an Outlook Calendar event with email subject line, narrative, any attachments, and room at the top to edit further by the user.
