Outlook randomly requires delegate to log in to manager's meeting to start

Copper Contributor

Outlook randomly requires me to log into my manager's meeting - that I created directly on their calendar - for the meeting to start. It will send me a note saying he is waiting to get in to his own meeting.


Anyone have that happen and know how to fix please?

Hi @KailuaGirl61,

Here are some possible solutions for the issue of Outlook randomly requiring a delegate to log in to a manager's meeting to start:

  1. Check the delegate's permissions. Make sure that the delegate has the correct permissions to manage the manager's calendar and meetings. To do this, open the manager's Outlook calendar and click on the "Manage Calendars" button. Then, click on the "Permissions" tab and make sure that the delegate has the "Full Access" permission.
  2. Clear the delegate's Outlook cache. Sometimes, corrupted Outlook cache files can cause problems with delegates logging in to manager's meetings. To clear the Outlook cache, close Outlook and then delete the following folders:
    • %temp%\Outlook Files
    • %localappdata%\Microsoft\Outlook\RoamCache
  3. Repair Outlook. If the above solutions do not work, you can try repairing Outlook. To do this, open the Control Panel and click on "Programs and Features." Then, scroll down to the "Microsoft Office" program and click on "Change." In the "Change" window, click on the "Repair" option and then click on "Continue."
  4. When creating a meeting on behalf of your manager, make sure to select the "On behalf of" option and select your manager's name.
