MC385451: Outlook – Additional RSVP Options

Updated June 28, 2022: Based on learnings from our early rings, we have made the decision to make additional changes before we proceed with the rollout. We will deliver a new Message center post once we re-start the rollout. Thank you for your patience.

The additional options for more detailed RSVP responses will start to roll out across Outlook. With this feature, attendees can let the organizer and other attendees know how they plan to attend a meeting, whether in person or virtually. These responses can be seen by anyone in the meeting invite, inside and outside of their organization, with a commercial or education Microsoft 365 account using a supported client and can be changed at any point. This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 88535.

New RSVP response options in Outlook lets people know if you will be attending a meeting online or in-person.

MC385451: Outlook - Additional RSVP Options

When this will happen

We will communicate via Message center when we are ready to proceed.

How this affects your org

Once the feature is deployed, users will have additional options to RSVP to a meeting invite. When accepting a meeting, users will now have 3 options: Yes, Yes in-person, Yes virtually. Other people in the meeting invite will be able to see everyone’s responses.

Other people in the meeting invite will be able to see everyone's responses.

Note: Users using a client that does not support the feature will not be able to respond with a detailed RSVP nor will be able to see the detailed RSVPs from other attendees. Users using the classic Outlook for Windows with a Microsoft 365 or Microsoft Exchange Online account will be able to see detailed RSVPs but will not be able to RSVP to the meeting with the detailed options.

What you need to do to prepare

There is nothing you need to do, updates will be rolled out to your organization based on the deployment rings your organization is in.

If you are using the new Outlook for Windows, then you can expect to see the same deployment rings your organization has for Outlook on the web.
