Respond to event invitations

You can also add a note or suggest a different time for an event. The event is added to the primary calendar associated with your email account that the invite was sent to.

Details about proposing a new time

  • Proposals are turned off for large events with more than 200 guests and all-day events. Learn more about large events.
  • All guests can propose a new time. Organizers can’t propose a new time.
  • Organizers will only receive email notifications for proposals if they turn on "event responses" in Google Calendar settings on a computer.

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.”
