In contacts.google.com it is possible to create "labels" which seem to have replaced the old "contact list."  This is not a Google Group, it's just a personal list of people.  If you have created several lists for committees or other groups of people, it might be useful to invite them all to a calendar event.  It seems counterintuitive that you can address an email to "Tech Team" and it will auto populate that To line with the members from the contact label list, but the same behavior doesn't work in a calendar invite.

Oh jeez.  You're totally right.  It wasn't doing the auto-fill behavior that I would expect, so I didn't even try hitting return after typing it.  That works.  Thank you!!

I'm having this problem too.  Used to be able to add guests to a calendar event by typing in the "label" name in the field.  Now not populating...  Any reason for the change?

My quick way around this is to export the label as a CSV, copy the 'email addresses' column, copy and paste into the 'invite people' box and hit enter. Its clunky, but it works.
