Important Notice: Microsoft 365 'Shared Calendar Improvements' conflict with tracking meetings in shared calendars for Outlook Desktop

  • Background
    • For Office365 mailboxes, Microsoft has introduced what it refers to as "Shared Calendar Improvements".
    • Shared Calendar Improvements applies changes to calendar items directly on the server.  The Riva Insight Windows Add-in makes changes to the local Outlook copy of mail items. When an item in a shared calendar is tracked, it creates a conflict has Outlook has a server copy and a client copy of the calendar item, which results in the shared calendar item not being sent when tracked.
  • What do I need to do?
    • If using  "Shared Calendar Improvements" with a Microsoft 365 mailbox and tracking items, you must turn off the Shared Calendar Improvements.
    • If you do not use shared calendars, do not have a Microsoft 365 mailbox, or do not track items that are in shared calendars, no changes are necessary.

  • What do I need to do?
    • If your users do not use Riva Insight on mobile, no changes are required.
