    Thanks for this, Mitch.
    The problem I have is that if an attendee accepts/declines an invitation, but chooses the “Don’t send” option, then it doesn’t update in tracking. Do you know a way around this?

    Is there a way to alter the response from an attendee? I have sent invitation to a lot of external people. Some of them don’t use the respond button. Instead the send an email where they accept the invitation.
    In the Tracking view there is a column “Response”. For each attendee there is a drop-down where you can alter the response. But when I try to save the appointment I get an option to “Send updates to all attendee” or “Don’t save changes”. The message is also indicationg that the meeting time has changed. I don’t want to send an update to the attendees.

    Happy New Year.
