In Outlook 2010 working against Exchange server, if I am the meeting organizer I have tracking options and at least one other way of seeing, if people have accepted or not.

However, when I am NOT the meeting organizer, I can't find any way to see, if other participants have accepted/rejected/etc.

Am I missing something, or is this by design?

It's by design. See here:

EDIT: Original link was broken and I can't find an updated version of that page. Here's another that says the same thing:

If you're invited to someone else's meeting, you'll see options on how to respond, and you'll be able to look at the scheduling view to see who else is on the list, but you won't be able to see how they're responded to the invite (well not entirely). You may be able to see the details in the scheduling view (depending on whether the invited attendees have given you the permission to see their calendars).

If you didn't organise the meeting, you may be able to open the calendar of the organiser and still be able to see who responded and how.

defective link? – Chris Mar 31 '15 at 17:16
Thanks Chris, I've added an updated link. – Rhys Gibson Mar 31 '15 at 21:11
As you can see, broken links are a problem because the answer has no value when that happens. And if the link isn't broken, the post is just a hint on where to look somewhere else for an answer. It's preferable to include the essential information in your answer and use the link just for attribution and further reading. – fixer1234 May 15 '15 at 5:12

In Outlook 2010, click the Scheduling Assistant button on the Home tab; a list of invited people displays at left, along with their required/optional status. But as stated above, you cannot get the response status unless you are the organizer (that is where the scheduling tab comes into play).

I know this is an old thread about Outlook 2010, but it was the first search result addressing the same question for Outlook 2016. Informed guesses are as close as you can get if you're not the organizer and the calendars aren't shared.

If you open the occurrence you'll see the Scheduling Assistant button in the Meeting Occurrence tab. ( Scheduling Assistant ) It will show all the invitees and what you are allowed to see of their calendars. If their calendar is shared with you, you'll see their meetings. You'll just see colored and and patterned bars if their calendar is not shared. If there's no bar at the appointment time, you can be sure they have not accepted, but you can't know if they haven't responded or declined. Similarly, you can't know for sure if they're shown to be busy, if they accepted this appointment or some other event.

The only way you can let them to know all response is to share your calender to them, so they will have a full access and can track meetings responses Select calender tab

  1. Find "Share Calender icon"
  2. Enter all emails you want to be able to track
  3. Check in " All receipents to view your calender
  4. Change from " Avaibility only" to "Full details"

Want to know who else is invited? It may be considered rude to ask, but with Outlook you can look for yourself and no one will be the wiser. Open the meeting request and click the Scheduling tab. You'll see a list of all of the other people who were invited to the meeting. Note, however, that only the meeting organizer knows who is coming for sure. Why? Because only the meeting organizer receives the responses to the meeting request, and it's the responses that report back to the meeting organizer about who is coming.

I think the original question was about seeing whether people accepted or not. While you did answer it, I would try to reword your response to make the answer your main points. Then you can put your supplementary information after. – Alex McKenzie Nov 18 '14 at 19:44
