Whenever I try to invite a handful of people to an event, I get this ""oops couldnt update the event please try again later" error message. Is there a setting that i need to toggle off to have multiple invitees?

Hello Mariela,

There is no such toggle available. Everyone by default is eligible to have multiple invitees. Can you kindly share a screenshot  on what error message it shows.

Hi Mariela,
 
Can you try opening a Private/Incognito window (sorry, I'm not sure what the iOS name is!), go to https://calendar.google.com and see if you're able to invite people?
 
If so, it may be that your browser cache has got corrupted and clearing the cache will hopefully resolve things.

Hi folks, 

This is an on-going problem, which incognito mode or cache clearing does not solve unfortunately. The error I receive is exactly what I shared in the subject, a small temporary pop-up at the bottom of the screen that states "Oops, we couldn't update this event. Please try again in a few minutes". As best I have been able to find online, it might be due to anti-spam security, however, i'm not trying to add 100s of people, at most 15 at a time. Would still love some help on this, as it often means that folks are left off of an important call.

Hi Mariela,

Please check out this thread, if you didn't already:


It seems that the 10 guest limit is still in place for free accounts because of abuse, and iirc Google are working on some kind of whitelist system to mitigate this problem. 

The best solution right now is to use Google groups instead of individual invitations:
