Auto Accept/Decline calendar meetings in outlook 2016 RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have a conference room at my office, with it's own user mailbox. it is set up as a shared calendar so that anyone from the office can see/reserve any time frame they want. I recently went in and set up the auto accept/decline feature so that anytime an employee creates a meeting and wants to reserve that conference room all they do is select the time frame on their calendar and invite the conference room. The conference room should automatically accept the invitation with the explained settings in place. When I would try and reserve a time frame for a conference room by using the above steps, it would show up on the calendar for the conference room but would not accept the invitation automatically unless I was logged into the outlook account for the conference room. I do not know why this is. Why will the conference room mailbox not auto accept my meeting invitation unless I am logged in on that computer, even though I have ticked the option for it to do so?  it also doesn't remove the meeting automatically unless I am logged in, again even though I have selected the option to do so.

    If users create meetings for this room mailbox on OWA, will same issue occur?

    What’s the version of Exchange server?

    >>Why will the conference room mailbox not auto accept my meeting invitation unless I am logged in on that computer,

    Do you have to manually accept/decline the meeting invite? Or, meeting was automatically accepted/declined when logging on?

    Besides, I’ve found one article here. Please check it is helpful to you.

    Any updates, please feel free to post back.

    Regards,

    Perry
