  • Scroll down to Time zones and click to show a second and third time zone options, and then set the time zones you want to see.
  • Click OK.

3. Know the responses of the participants

In the past only meeting organizers could view which attendees have accepted, tentatively accepted, or declined a meeting invitation. Now attendees can see other participants responses.

  • Open the meeting and click on > Tracking Tab

 

4.  Turn off forwarding for a meeting

Use this feature if you are scheduling a meeting and it’s important that only the colleagues you have invited are in attendance, and you want to prevent them from forwarding to others.
