Cancel meeting request: Outlook 2011 for Mac

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.

  2. Click on the Cancel icon to cancel the meeting.

    If this meeting is a reoccurring event, the Cancel icon will give you the option of deleting a single Occurrence or the entire Series.

  3. Type a message to the invitees, if desired, then click 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.
