Many users hope to quickly resend the meeting invitation to the attendees who have not made any responses. This article will show you how to achieve it.
In my previous article – “How to Quickly Send a Notification Mail to the Meeting Attendees Who Haven’t Responded”, you could learn how to send a notification mail to the meeting recipients who haven’t responded. Similar to it, many users would like to directly resend this meeting invitation instead of a notification mail. Thus, in the followings, we will expose a piece of VBA code, which can help you to realize it in an instant.
Resend the Meeting Invitation to Those Haven’t Responded
- To start with, launch your Outlook application.
- Then, in the Outlook main window, press “Alt + F11” key buttons to access VBA editor.
- Next you should open an unused module or simply insert a new one.
- Subsequently, copy and paste the VBA code below into this module.
Sub ResendMeetingInvitationToAttendeesNotRespond() Dim objMeeting As AppointmentItem Dim objAttendees As Recipients Dim objAttendee As recipient Dim AttendeesNotRespond As String Dim objCopiedMeeting As AppointmentItem Dim objRecipient As recipient Dim objItem As Object Set objMeeting = ActiveExplorer.Selection.Item(1) 'Create a copy of the source meeting Set objCopiedMeeting = objMeeting.Copy 'Remove all the original recipients For i = objCopiedMeeting.Recipients.Count To 1 Step -1 objCopiedMeeting.Recipients.Item(i).Delete Next Set objAttendees = objMeeting.Recipients For Each objAttendee In objAttendees If (objAttendee.Type <> olOrganizer) And (objAttendee.MeetingResponseStatus = olResponseNone) Then 'Add the recipients who haven't responded to this meeting objCopiedMeeting.Recipients.Add (objAttendee.Address) End If Next 'Send this copied meeting objCopiedMeeting.Recipients.ResolveAll objCopiedMeeting.Send 'Permanently delete the copied meeting objCopiedMeeting.UserProperties.Add ("Clear"), olText objCopiedMeeting.Save objCopiedMeeting.Delete For Each objItem In Application.Session.GetDefaultFolder(olFolderDeletedItems).Items If TypeName(objItem.UserProperties.Find("Clear")) <> "Nothing" Then objItem.Delete End If Next End Sub
- After that, for later convenient access, you are better off adding this new VBA project to Quick Access Toolbar as usual.
- Also, access macro settings to ensure macros are permitted.
- Finally you can take a shot:
- Firstly, you need to select the source meeting in your Outlook calendar.
- Then press the macro button in Quick Access Toolbar.
- Immediately, this meeting will be resent to the attendees who haven’t responded.
Resolve Various Outlook Problems
When you utilize your Outlook, all kinds of issues can occur unexpectedly, such as abrupt “No Responding”, popup error messages, crashes and so on. Generally, it is essential for you to fix the small issues with the internal repair utility. However, if the problems are too serious to be solved by Scanpst.exe, you have no choice but to take aid of a far more potent and reliable fix tool, such as DataNumen Outlook Repair. It is well versed in PST repair, thereby shouldering over its rivals.

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.
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?
