      As in, you invite people and it's automatically accepted and added to their calendar? Those settings are beyond your control. You can only autoaccept meeting to your own calendar.

    Great resource! Thank you! I've been looking forever for something like Database Exporter for Outlook. I was excited to see it described here, but it doesn't seem to be a compatible with Macs. Is that right? If so, is there anything similar I can use to perform these export functions on a Mac?

    • Diane Poremsky says

      Yeah, most of the apps are for Window's Outlook. I'm not aware of anything similar for mac. Sorry.
