In the old version of Outlook I could add my signature block to a meeting invite by selecting insert/signature. I can't see where this option is in new Outlook. My impression is that Microsoft has arbitrarily removed this functionality.

    The option to add signature to a Calendar invite in the new Outlook it doesn't seem feasible at the moment.

    I got the exact same problem. My company is working on implementing a 3rd-party add-in to generally manage signatures which should solve this problem, however there are problems with the implementation in my country. In the meantime and as a workaround, I always open a normal email message and copy & paste the signature from there. Normally I really like the new Outlook, especially because it's much faster and I'm actually able to work with it, but things like this are just annoying. On another note, it seems like I can't add new paragraphs (Enter button) here when typing in a mobile browser, so sorry for the awful formatting...
