Add Bcc field to meeting requests in Outlook 2016

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

Also, Outlook calendar entries need BCC – 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.

        Please allow senders of calendar invites to bcc invitees so that they can't see who's invited to the meeting. Thanks!

        Be able truly BCC calendar invites from both Outlook 2016 / 2019 for Windows and Outlook 2016 / 2019 for MACs .....

        This has asked and come up many many times for feature update. With all the Privacy Laws, one needs to maintain privacy but also provided information.

        Thank you,

        My last employer CEO prefer Lotus Notes over MS Office 365 as she and other executive wants to have BBC enabled in all their appointment with mass audience.

        I would like to add that this feature of being able to BCC attendees would be much appreciated in the next version of office and on the online version. The current workaround of adding invitees as "Resources" does not work on the Office 365 "On The Web" app. You can only add resources that are "rooms" and you cannot fool the web app into adding people as resources.

        like a meeting invite but recipients can only see attendees names, they cannot access their email addresses.

        when you're sending an invite to more than 1000 colleagues! BCC is important. imagine the reply to all! ugh.

        BCC to Outlook invite. When you have to send an invite to more than 1k... it's a lot of names and reply to all are not cool to 1k. especially in corporate & office 365.

        II would like to request that the Bcc field be added to meeting requests in a future update of Outlook

        I am surprised/disappointed that didn't exist before.
        When you write an email to a couple of people you don't want to share their information without asking them about it. Why would this be different for inviting people for an event?
        This is very logical.
        Guys, you really need to do your homework.

        Please allow the option to send meetings requests with BCC so information about all invitees is not shared with everyone that is invited. This is very much needed and missing.

        Please allow for sending meeting invitations using BCC for the recipients so others cannot see who is attending ahead of time.
