Appointment and meeting requests are part of everyday business life and can be quickly created and managed in Outlook’s calendar view. But how does it all work in Web Outlook, i.e. in the browser variant of the Microsoft program?
Manage appointment requests and appointments in Web Outlook
In the browser variant Web Outlook, you first log in at www.outlook.com with your Hotmail, Live or Outlook account. Subsequently, in the normal mail view, click on the small calendar icon at the bottom left to the appointments, shown depending on the setting in the daily, weekly or monthly overview. You start the sending of a meeting invitation in the browser by double-clicking on the day or time. In the next window, enter the subject and location, select the time and address the people who should take part or their email addresses in the “Invite participants” field. In the “Answer Options” section above, make sure that “Request Answers” is activated. You send the invitation via “Send”. The invited person has the usual options here to accept or cancel, preferably by means of an “answer”, so that the organizer can find out. The latter receives the confirmation both from the confirmation email and after double-clicking on the appointment entry. Then it says: “… has accepted”.
Appointment and meeting requests can now be handled in Web Outlook just as easily as in the desktop version of Microsoft Outlook.
Conversely, if you receive an appointment invitation yourself and want to manage it in Web Outlook, it is now much easier than before. As soon as the invitation email arrives, the Outlook calendar automatically creates an appointment from it. Of course, this is not yet accepted or canceled, you can do this by clicking on “Yes”, “Maybe” or “No” either directly from the email or by double-clicking on the relevant appointment, followed by “Send”.
Subsequent changes to an appointment in the browser are similarly simple; you no longer need to save them locally.
