I regularly send out calendar invites to people who don't know each other. I don't want them to see each other's email addresses. How can I set up the calendar invite to behave more like a CC field in Outlook emails? Thanks for your help!

    I found I was able to do this, but I had to log into the web version to access the tools - under the "Responses" section of the calendar booking there is an option to "Hide Attendee List." It doesn't seem like the most intuitive place, but I saw the advice on another forum and was able to follow the instructions.

    Hello,

    I have never seen this type of request before, but here is an article that states to use the Resource field in the Required field:

    https://vtcri.kayako.com/article/471-how-to-send-a-meeting-invitation-and-bcc-attendees

    Press Invite Attendees > Required add people to Resources.

    I'd recommend trying it out with a test group to see how it responds in your environment.
