How to cancel meeting for one/certain attendees in Outlook?

Normally we can cancel a meeting invitation for all attendees easily with clicking the Cancel Meeting button on the Meeting tab. What if canceling a meeting invitation for only one attendee? In some cases, you may need to cancel the meeting invitation for one or certain attendees as situation changes. Here I will show you the way to cancel a meeting for one/certain attendees in Outlook.

To cancel a meeting invitation for only one or certain attendees in Microsoft Outlook, you can do as following:

Step 1: Open the meeting invitation which you will cancel for one or certain attendees.

Step 2: Remove the attendees you will cancel the meeting for in the To box directly.

Step 3: Click the Send Update button.

Step 4: In the popping up Send Update to Attendees dialog box, check the option of Send updates only to added or deleted attendees, and click the OK button.

    This worked for me and only sent the cancellation notice to those I deleted.

    It worked perfectly for me. The box popped up and it canceled only those I had deleted from the list.

    Hi, when deleting attendees from a meeting when I hit the send button it automatically sends out the updated meeting. Why do I not get the message box that reads:Send Update to Attendees? Sometime it appears and sometimes it does not. This meeting goes to 70 attendees and I do not want to send it out to everyone.
    Thank you
    Karon
