Provide an Option to Disable Calendar Pop Up Warnings About Altering a Single Occurrence of a Series.

Having to click 3 warnings every. ****. Time. that I open a meeting. Who could have tested this and still thought it was a good idea?
I agree this is terribly annoying. When changing an instance of a recurring Skype meeting, I need to click away three warnings. Please fix.
Whoever thought this is a good idea doesnt use the product. Everytime you open the invitation, it gives you the message. Very Annoying

I created a meeting series with a Skype link. Every time I double click the reminder, it give this notification where to open the series... I know that if I want to modify a series that I need to open the series, I do not need to be reminded every single time I need to open the meeting from the reminder box. ( the meeting is for every day of the week)
You should do a design pass and aggressively eliminate as many of these annoying warnings as possible. Start with this one, and then try clearing your calendar for a week: there are tons of warnings that pop up. "Do you want to send a note?" etc. Love what Outlook for iOS does: when deleting an email, it just does it and shows a little box on the bottom allowing you to undo it for a few seconds.
As stated from other users - this warning is showing up every time I open the dialog to start a meeting - unnecessary.

This dialog is a confusing time-waster, because it's being shown at an inappropriate time. In principle, a dialog should appear only at the point in the process when it's needed to provide or collect information.
I imagine that when users open a single occurrence, it's usually to cancel, to change the time, to change the attendees, or to work with to the invitation message or OneNote meeting notes of that occurrence. I think editing the Skype details is a rare use case, so there is no point in showing this dialog unless the user actually does that.
I agree with the anonymous author in this thread who points out that when it does appear, it should not be modal.

Ideally this would come in the form of a checkbox on notification dialog to silence it appearing in the future.

We use meeting series a lot. Often single occurences need to be canceled, e.g. during vacation times. Then the dialog telling you something obvious.
"Changes to this occurence won't appliy to the Skype Meeting associated with this series. To change the Skype Meeting, open the series and thenmake the change"
It's ok to get this once, but there should be an option to hide it the next times. Espesially when you need to cancel more than one, it's very anoining.
Disable notifications for calendar events. Allow notifications for specific entries.
When opening a calendar entry containing a Skype Meeting, a message is displayed:
Changes to this occurrence won't apply to the Skype Meeting associated with this series. To change the Skype Meeting, open the series and then make changes.
The "OK" button must be clicked before ANY outlook windows can be accessed.
Proposal 1: By default or configuration; Allow the message to be passive - i.e. go to the background and user to keep working without first hitting OK.
Proposal 2: Preferred - A configuration option to disable the warning.
