How can we improve Outlook on the web?

Accepting an invite should take less clicks

Accepting an invite without notifying the sender takes this many clicks:
1. Open appointment
2. Open drop-down for accepting
3. Select answer (e.g. Yes)
4. Select event or series
5. Deselect "Notify organizer"
6. Click "Save"

In the old interface it was:
1. Open appointment
2. Select answer (e.g. Yes) to open drop-down
3. Click "Don't send response" for occurrence

    In the old outlook, when someone requested to join a group, there was a button within their request e-mail which automatically opened the "add person" so that I just needed to click save. Please reincorporate this feature!

    lol what? Apparently this site censors a word homophonic with "dam". What is this place, a 19th century Christian monastery?

    Agree with this very much. The "notify organiser" option should be more intelligent. Default to *off* (because really, who wants thousands of emails saying "yes"). If the user turns it on manually, then keep it on in the future. Or have a setting where users can select their preference. And keep that **** toggle close to all the other options related to accepting invitations, instead of all the way across the other side of the screen.

    However it's done, accepting an invite needs to be made easier. Fewer clicks. Less moving the mouse back and forth all the way across the screen.
