Rules for Meeting Invitations (Outlook on the Web)

One of our recommendations for Calendar Harmony is that you send meeting invitation updates to all participants on all changes. This article describes how to have all meeting related messages automatically filtered out of your Inbox and into a folder just for such messages.


Microsoft frequently changes the design of Outlook on the Web, so your version may differ somewhat from the description here.

  1. Near the upper-right corner of the Outlook on the Web window, click Actions, then click Create Rule. A New Inbox Rule dialog box will open.
  2. Near the bottom of the dialog box, click More Options.
  3. From the When the message arrives, and drop-down list, select It's then (from the menu that appears) select of the type. A small Select Message Type dialog box will open. (If the small dialog box doesn't appear, click Select One next to the drop-down list that now reads It's of type.)
  4. Select Meeting Request from the drop-down list, then click OK.
  5. From the Do the following drop-down list, select Move, copy, or delete, then (from the menu that appears) select Move the message to folder.
  6. Click Select one.
  7. Select the folder where you want the messages filed. If the folder does not exist yet, click New Folder to create it now.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Click Save.
