M365 Changelog: (Updated) Outlook on the Web – User Experience Update for RSVP

MC399868 – Updated September 1, 2022: Microsoft has updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.

Microsoft is releasing an update to the current RSVP user experience in Outlook on the web.

This message is associated with Microsoft 365 Roadmap ID 93326

When this will happen:

Targeted release – Microsoft will begin rollout in late July.

WW – Microsoft will begin rollout in late July and expect rollout to be completed by late September (previously mid-August). 

How this will affect your organization:

When users click on “Yes/Maybe/No“, instead of completing the RSVP workflow, the dialog box will expand and give users more options before completing the workflow. Users can review options such as “email organizer” before sending the final response. 

What you need to do to prepare:

There is nothing you need to do to prepare for this change as this update will happen automatically for those using Outlook on the Web. You may want to notify your users about this change and update your training and documentation as appropriate.
