Question: When reviewing appointments or meetings scheduled by others on the Microsoft Outlook calendar, is there a way to identify who scheduled the event and when?  -- Anonymous in Los Angeles


When you open the appointment/meeting that was created by another person, it should have the name of the "organizer" (the person who originated the meeting) as well as the date/time that the appointment was created (look for the word "sent," which shows the date and time the appointment was created).

When you open the meeting invitation on the top left hand corner the organizers name should be there, and on the right top corner is the date the meeting was sent/created.

Hope this helps,


When you open the meeting request, look at the top left of the request. The organizers name should be there, also on the right top should be the date and time he meeting was sent.

Double-click on the meeting item on the calendar in Outlook and it should open up the meeting request (or right click on it and select "open" from the menu that appears.) The organizer /sent info referenced by the other comments is just above the Subject line. (Meetings that the person doing the scheduling has made "private" will not show any other details.)

If you need to know everyone in the meeting, go to the "Scheduling" tab just above htis information and click on it. You'll see alist of everybody who is invited to attend the meeting.
