July’s Office Updates Come with a GPO to Disable or Hide the Do Not Send a Response in Outlook

Nevermind that most of the U.S. will be taking a mid-week break from work due to the July 4th Independence celebration – Microsoft is sticking to its regular monthly cadence of delivering its first Tuesday non-Security updates for Office.

Of note this month, is the July 3, 2018, update for Outlook 2016 (KB4022230). This update introduces a new Group Policy object…

Administrators can set a Group Policy to disable the Do Not Send a Response option in Outlook 2013 or hide the option in Outlook 2016 when attendees accept a meeting request. This policy disables the third option in the meeting response dialog box and on the shortcut menu in Outlook 2013. In addition, it also disables the option when you delete a meeting request in Outlook 2013. For Outlook 2016, the option is hidden.

Interestingly, to produce the same effect for Outlook 2013, you need to make sure that the November 10, 2015, update for Outlook 2013 (KB3101488) is installed.

Details: Update adds a Group Policy to disable the Do Not Send a Response option in Outlook 2013 or hide it in Outlook 2016
