How to check responses to meeting request

Outlook 365 2013
After creating a meeting request, invitees can confirm and refuse to attend this event, or suggest another time. The organizer of the meeting is essential to track confirmations and refusals of participants. In Outlook, it is easy to check the responses by the organizer, but participants do not receive notifications from other attendees.

To check the status of responses to your meeting request, follow these steps:

   1.   Click the Calendar icon in the Navigation bar to open calendar:
