How to send meeting invitation with Bcc in Outlook?

Author: Kelly Last Modified: 2020-05-20

Normally, you can Bcc (blind carbon copy) an email to recipients easily with typing recipients’ email addresses into the Bcc filed in Outlook. However, there is no Bcc filed in the meeting window when we sending a meeting invitation. In fact we can send meeting invitations with Bcc by adding Resource attendees in Outlook.


To send meeting invitation with Bcc in Microsoft Outlook, you can do as following:

1. Shift to the Calendar view, and create a new meeting invitation:

  1. In Outlook 2010 and 2013, click the New Meeting button on the Home tab;
  2. In Outlook 2007, click the File > New > Meeting Request.

2. In the Meeting window, click the To button.

3. In the popping up Select Attendees and Resources dialog box, find out and select the attendees that you will bcc the meeting to, then click the Resources -> button, at last click the OK button. See screen shot:

Notes:
(1) Holding the Shift key, you can select multiple adjacent attendees with clicking the first one and the last one;
(2) Holding the Ctrl key, you can select multiple non-adjacent attendees with clicking each attendee one by one.

4. Now you get back to the meeting window, compose your meeting, and click the Send button.

Note: If you need to Cc (Carbon copy) a meeting to attendees, just add attendees into the Optional filed in the Select Attendees and Resource dialog box. See screen shot above.

This does not work. Recipients see each others names / details in the 'location' now, so does not solve the issue.

In new Outlook Desktop App, create new meeting -> scheduling assistant -> add resources (NOT required or optional attendees). The attendees will still receive RSVPs, but will not see who else is invited.

Too bad they again haven't thought of common everyday things when designing their software.
I need to invite several people who signed up for a vaccine, I do not think it's proper to make publicly known who signed up.
My only alternative is to create an invite per person.

do it in online version of Outlook, in New meeting select Response options and use checkbox Hide attendee list.
it works only online, in your installed app this version isnt accesible - you know Microsoft...

Hi there,

You can try the above advice from David. 🙂

This is not a proper hack.

Still invitees appear in other section.

Hi there,

For newer versions, the To... button is replaced with Required and Optional. Click either one as you need and then add recipients in the Resources box.

Problem tylko jest taki, że gdy ktoś prześle dalej to spotkanie z poziomu Outlooka to Outlook zacytuje nagłówek oryginalnego zaproszenia, a z nagłówka zaproszenia odczytasz wszystkie adresy zaproszonych. Nie działa. Jedyna opcja jaką znam, to wysłanie zaproszenia ze strony outlook.com Opcje odpowiedzi > Ukryj listę uczestników

When sending a meeting BCC like stated here, can attendees see each other in the "Tracking" tab of the meeting?

When I select Resources with email I plan for BCC, it turned to be Location change instead of BCC, does anyone know why? Thanks

Mine did this too, but I just said not to update the location and proceeded from there. Worked.

so in 2010 and 2013... i understand that you click on the word "required" and make sure names are in "resources".. then the evite goes as a bcc .. how do you turn off responses?
