The Outlook mobile apps support an extension point for online meeting provider add-ins, however the available Outlook.js APIs are very limited: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/dev/add-ins/outlook/online-meeting#available-apis

For our add-in, we'd really like to use Notifications: https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/javascript/api/outlook/office.notificationmessages?view=outlook-js-...

Notifications seem like the ideal way to communicate to the user why adding a meeting to their event was unsuccessful. Currently, if adding a meeting to an event fails, it does so silently.
