  1. when I used this Macro it sends the non-responses the invite, that allows them to respond. I get an email saying they accepted/declined, but it does not update the tracking. It seems as if it’s sending them a new event, but that event does not get added to my calendar.

  2. Great piece of code – thanks!

    What happens to replies to the re-sent invitation? The code appears to delete the copy that was sent to the original nonresponders, and if that’s true, what happens with the replies? Will the accepts/declines automatically be recorded in the original invitation? Or do I have to manually change those based on the email responses in my inbox?
