Cancel meeting request: Outlook 2010 and 2013

As the organizer of a meeting, it is often necessary to make changes to a meeting that has already been scheduled. The only item that cannot be changed is your attendance: as the organizer, the meeting cannot exist without you. Follow these steps to cancel a meeting. Otherwise, edit your meeting details.

  1. Double click on the meeting in your calendar to open the meeting dialogue box.

    Note: If this meeting is a reoccurring event, you will be given the option of opening one occurrence or the entire series.

  2. In the main meeting window, click on Cancel Meeting.

  3. Click on Send Cancellation.

This action cannot be undone. If you change your mind and decide to hold the meeting after all, you will need to send a new meeting request.
