Is it possible to create meeting request?

  Asked By: Sarojini    Date: Aug 23    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 3777

I've heard people saying that we can't send out meeting request / event invitation from sharepoint.
But that would beat the purpose of the purpose of MS' collaborative software, right?

anyway, is there a way to somehow sync the calendar from outlook and the sharepoint so at least people could still access it and send out meeting request from their outlook client?

or if there's another suggestion?

I think you can try to:
1) Create a new people  or group type column with allowing multiple values.
2) Create a workflow to send  emails to the users in the new column when adding or updating items.
