Outlook Calendar not auto-accepting Bookings appointments

New Contributor

I have tried everything I can think of and still no luck. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


A group of our university academic advisors created a Bookings calendar to allow students to book time with various staff members. All staff members are able to be booked appropriately using the same services. Of course, multiple staff are assigned to provide each services. For all staff members except one, the appointments are automatically added to their calendars. One of them is forced to manually accept any appointment that is booked with her. Considering she can have 15+ appointments booked per day, it is a considerable time suck and annoyance to have to go through this with each. I have combed through every Bookings setting and compared the problematic person's account to everyone else's. Everything matches. 


Has anyone else experienced this and, if so, what solution did you come up with? Is there some deep dive setting in Outlook that I am missing? I have also searched at length online and haven't come up with a comparable issue from anyone else.
