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:

Thanks Chris, I've added an updated link. –  Rhys Gibson Mar 31 at 21:11

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

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).
