How can we improve your Desktop Outlook 2016 experience?

Add BCC, CC as well as FYI field to meeting requests in Outlook 2016

I would like the option to send meetings requests with BCC, CC so all information about all invitees is not shared with everyone that is invited

Also, Outlook calendar entries need BCC, CC – without showing these!

Hi everyone,

Thank you for providing a clear signal that we should prioritize this new feature.

We are planning to support this feature in Outlook for Office 365 subscribers. We will share an updated status when engineering work for this feature begins.

Thanks again and please feel free to continue up-voting and commenting on this suggestions.

    Let users be able to choose Blind Copy on meeting invites to groups or single users.

    Initiate BBC function for invitations. Purpose: to eliminate group emails to be accessible to all participants.

    Sería excelente que se agregara el campo CCO a convocatorias de reunión en el Outlook calendar

    It would be great if you add the CCO field to meeting requests in the Outlook calendar

    this is an important point to add as sometimes meetings are attended by someone who wants to be a silent observer. so maintain as bcc

    Send a meeting invite as an FYI for specific people so they know that it's been scheduled, but they do not need to attend.

    Really need to be able to send a meeting invitation without allowing attendees to see other attendees' contact info. Ideally, need to be able to send invitations with attendees marked as BCC.

  • Dr. Charles Dudley commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Request meeting attendees be allowed to be BCC (private) so other attendees Names, Emails, contact info is NOT available/accessible to other attendees, JUST LIKE EMAIL. Super surprised that this is not already an option. Hope it can be part of an update very soon. Thanks!

    O365 needs to pick up its game. We need invitee / attendee lists to be private and hidden from other invitees. The Google Calendar has this functionality but unfortunately, my workplace has switched to O365 :(

    Please add back the BCC option for calendar invites (it used to work using the "resource" with people in there as the option).

  • Roxy Harter commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Please add BCC to calendar invites/meeting requests. Need to have invitees/attendees not visible. Resource function no longer works as a BCC which was the work around.

    We need this feature in the Desktop version as well as O365, as it is easier to add multiple users in desktop and formatting sometimes turns out funky in the Web version.

  • Tabitha commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    Need the option to change sensitivity level on a meeting invite (just like you can on an e-mail. The Private function is not ideal for anyone functioning as a delegate.

    Don't just make it for Outlook for Office 365 subscribers. We use Office 2016/2019 and need this in Outlook. This should be included as an Office update for all platforms.

  • Julia Molinaro commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    BCC Feature in meeting invites! And in the desktop version of Outlook as well, not just in web.

    The sooner the better... been waiting almost a year for this feature now.

    Graag technisch mogelijk maken om een vergaderverzoek ook naar BCC te kunnen sturen

    Please make it technically possible to also send a meeting request to BCC

    Het zou handig zijn om toekomstige medewerkers van een organisatie alvast te kunnen uitnodigen voor afspraken zonder dat het prive email adres zichtbaar is voor anderen ivm privacy. Handig zou zijn als je deze prive email adressen in de BCC zou kunnen zetten.

    It would be useful to be able to invite future employees of an organization to appointments without the private email address being visible to others for privacy reasons. It would be handy if you could put these private email addresses in the BCC.

    Dit zou vanuit de AVG afgedwongen kunnen worden. Naast een bericht versturen met gebruikmaking van BCC ook een agenda verzoek met BCC. Niet iedereen vindt het prettig om te laten weten aan de rest dat ze uitgenodigd zijn. ( b.v. bij een informatieavond over onderwerpen die als gevoelig cq waar bijzondere persoonsgegevens worden aangemerkt , zoals Aids , HIv en Islam)
