I send invitations on events from Google calendar to Outlook users. From the free web Outlook version, I receive responses but from the desktop version, I get nothing. Users see RSVP buttons, accepts or declines invitations, but nothing comes back to Google calendar.
What can be wrong?

    Hi @Paul Pukhtiy ,

    What's the specific version of your Outlook desktop client(File>Office account>About Outlook), please first ensure that you have updated to the latest version of Outlook.

    And how did the user response the meeting invitation?

    According to my tests with a personal gmail account and Microsoft 365 account in Outlook 365 Version 2106 (Build 14131.20278), the meeting response I sent in the following two ways on Outlook can be viewed by Google Calendar normally.

    1.click the "Accept" "Decline" option on top of invitation, if you work with this way in Outlook, it would send a respond message from your Outlook client and you could check the message in the Outlook Sent folder.
