To improve the management of meeting items, the Microsoft Exchange Server 2007 Calendar Attendant feature makes the scheduling of meetings more reliable. The Calendar Attendant automatically places new meetings on the calendar as tentative appointments, updates existing meetings with new information, and deletes out-of-date meeting requests without any client interaction. The Calendar Attendant also processes meeting forward notifications by sending a notification when a meeting request is forwarded and adding meeting attendees to the calendar when a meeting notification is received.
To manage these Calendar Attendant tasks at the Exchange organization level, you must use the Exchange Management Shell. To manage these tasks at the user level, you can use Microsoft Outlook Web Access. For more information about how to use Outlook Web Access to manage client-side meeting items, see "Calendar Options" in Outlook Web Access Help.
The topics in this section show you how to use the Exchange Management Shell to perform the following Calendar Attendant tasks:
