When you receive a meeting request you have several options, let's explore these options now.
Our Inbox contains a meeting request for next week, when this request was received Outlook automatically placed it in our calendar.
However we must confirm whether we will accept or decline this meeting, we may also wish to send a response.
Let's find our meeting on the calendar, I'm going to use the Date Navigator on the left hand side of the screen to move to the meeting date.
We see the meeting invitation, it has been marked tentative until we accept or decline the meeting, so let's do that now.
Let's open the meeting by double clicking on the meeting invite.
In the meeting window the following options are available for most meeting requests: we can accept the meeting, we can market tentative saying you're not sure that you can be there or not, we can decline the meeting, sometimes you may have the option to propose a new meeting time.
This isn't always available depending on whether or not the person who created the meeting has given other users this option.
We can also respond to the meeting by choosing to reply or forward the meeting request.
Let's accept this meeting and send it off without adding an additional message.
To accept the meeting, in the Respond group click the Accept button and then click Send The Response now.
The scheduled meeting will now appear on our calendar as having been accepted and the meeting invite will disappear from our Inbox.
