Respond to event invitations

To let people know if you can attend an event, you can respond to calendar invitations. You can also add a note or suggest a different time for an event. When your email account receives the invite, Google Calendar adds the event to your primary calendar.

Important: Based on your settings, events may not show in the calendar until you respond to the event or confirm you know certain senders. These senders include:

  • People outside your organization
  • People not in your contacts
  • People you haven’t interacted with before

To update your event settings, learn how to manage your invitations.

  • On a computer, in Google Calendar settings, if organizers turn on “Event responses,” they receive email notifications for proposals.

Forward calendar invites

Important: If you forward an invitation, the recipient might be able to see updated meeting details and could change your RSVP response at any time.

If you have permission to add guests to an event, you can forward the invite to new guests by email. When new guests respond to the invite, they’ll be added to the guest list. They’ll also be able to invite others.

If you don’t want guests to be able to invite others, edit your event, tap the guests, and turn off “Guests can add others.”
