I would like to quickly add Optional meeting attendees to a new Outlook meeting.
I am trying to create a meeting with Alice and Bob as required attendees, but Steve is optional. There is no field to quickly enter optional attendees:
When a new meeting is being created and names are entered into the
To... field, they are Required attendees by default.
For composing emails, it is possible to display To, CC, and BCC fields all at once. There is a
Show Fields portion of the ribbon to hide or display the BCC field:
I'm looking for a option to
Show Fields, Optional for creating a new meeting, but it appears there is no such option.
If I enter the names into the field and then click the
To... button, I can then move individuals from Required to Optional, but that process is an extra step.
Is there a way to show the Optional field when creating a new meeting?
I'm using Outlook 2013 on Windows 7.
