meeting forward option in Outlook for MAC
Hi, would like to see the option of forwarding a meeting from outlook via calendar to another user. This option has been there in Windows Office version from a very long period but this was missing in 2011 version and 2016 version as well.

Please add this feature, its table stakes
Please add this feature !
Yes, I agree that a forward feature of a meeting from my calendar is essential and added.
HI!! THIS IS KIND OF AN ESSENTIAL FEATURE TO MAKE OUTLOOK ON MAC. PLEASE ENABLE THIS FEATURE THAT HAS BEEN AVAILABLE ON PC VERSION FOR MANY YEARS. THIS IS BASIC FUNCTIONALITY THAT IS MISSING.
For Mac Users - there is no way to add a new invitee to an existing meeting without sending the same meeting request to all those already invited. Please allow a way to add new invitees without (re) sending the meeting request to all the existing invitees - on a Mac

So, I initially voted for this idea because I too thought that forwarding meeting invites was not working on MacOS, but it turns out that it works, the problem is that the email looks like any other email, unlike on Windows where forwarding a meeting invite displays a different type of message.
So I have a different experience with Outlook for Mac 2016, but just as terrible.
When forwarding MY meeting to others, I can simply just add their names to the meeting. Seems easy enough.
Now let's move over to other people's meetings...
When I forwarded someone else's meeting to another person who needs to attend from Outlook on WINDOWS, it would be in my Sent folder, with the meeting and any message I typed in the message to the recipients (agenda, why I’m sending, etc). My notes would also appear on THIER meeting invite they received and accepted. Very neat and tidy.
When I forward a meeting to someone from Outlook on Mac (right click/CTRL Click > Forward), it appears to not include the meeting invite, just the details, and it’s never referenced anywhere, no record in Sent or otherwise, and I lose the message I sent to that person when forwarding (let's say if I had a follow-up to my notes). Nothing. Nada. Zilch.
Is this normal? Seem like an Outlook 2016 for Mac bug.
Workaround: if you want to reference something you added as a note to someone when forwarding a meeting (i.e. meeting agenda for my VP to reference when sending him a meeting invite), it seems the only way Outlook saves that message/detail is if you separately reply to the message, then forward the meeting separately -- which again, the latter you will not see any record of ever sending :-/
Good job Microsoft. Now how about fixing this for us? Thanks so much!
It is kind of ridiculous that this is not a feature in the Mac version of the Outlook application. How hard would it be to get it added?
Found a workaround: I added the new person to the list of invited people and just cick "send update". Outlook then asks if the update should be send to all attendes or just to the newly added ones.
cant believe such a basic feature is not there
forwarding meeting invites to others as a meeting invite is a by forwarding the meeting as an actual meeting, the organiser gets the acceptance or decline of the new attendee and in case where the organiser updates the invite, also the additional attendee gets the update. This always worked on the Windows version and does work on the web version.

How can I invite others in Mac OS? Forwarding someone else's invite looks like an email, not a meeting invite.

I would like to have the option to invite my team to a meeting organized by someone else. This can be done in the Windows version. I have no more votes, but would really like to see this option added.

Under forward special it says "meeting" but it creates a appointment. I need to invite to create. I would also like to create "meeting" there then I don't need to invite.
Spare some clicks.
