Meeting requests sent to user are displayed in user's iPhone calendar app as well as delegate's mail

Occasional Contributor

Hi,

 

We've set up a user as a calendar delegate for another user.  The non-delegate (we'll call them N) is an executive and does not want to receive meeting requests.

 

What is happening is when someone sends a meeting request to N, the delegate properly receives the request, but N's iPhone Calendar app pops up a meeting request notification as well.

The delegate should be the only one receiving this request.

N wants to continue to use the native iPhone Calendar app for all calendar notifications and not the Outlook app. (Otherwise this would be easy.)

Is there a way to prevent the N's iPhone from displaying this message?

You should be able to control this via the "Deliver meeting requests addressed to me and responses to meeting requests where I am the organizer to" settings in Outlook, set it to "My delegates only".

@Vasil MichevHi Vasil,

It is already configured this way:

I am beginning to think I might need to contact Apple about this.

Thanks,

Do that. Afaik, this setting basically configures a hidden rule which acts on the meeting requests, and it's likely that the Mail app has its own opinion on how to handle them...
