I am trying to test the very simple example from the EWS Documentation that

creates an Appointment without sending a meeting request. I am getting

meeting request no matter what option I use with the save:

appointment =

new Appointment(exchangeService);

appointment.RequiredAttendees.Add(myexchangeemail)

appointment.ReminderMinutesBeforeStart = 24 * 60;

appointment.Subject = subject;

appointment.Body = body;

appointment.Start = startDate;

appointment.End = endDate;

appointment.Save(

SendInvitationsMode.SendToNone);

Are there additional properties I must set? I am authenticating with a

"service" login to Exchange via EWS. Must this "service" login have

permission or Delegate options set?

Any insight you can provide would be greatly appreciated.

To be more exact, I am trying to create a meeting request for multiple

people, but I would like the meeting to simply be placed in the user's

calendar without them having to acknowledge a meeting request. Is the

possible with EWS?

We were able to do this with the WebDAV interface.

Thanks,

Sam

After more investigation I was able to accomplish what I needed. I

created an Appointment vs. a Meeting Request for each user. A Meeting

Request must always send out Invitations if you want all users to see

the same Meeting Request. The advantage of a Meeting Request is that

all users can see the Attendee list, but I did not want to spam the

users with Invitations and updates to these meeting requests that would

happen automatically by another system. I therefore decided to create

an Appointment for each user. This list of people attending he

Appointment (meeting) is contained within the Appointment text:

foreach (var user in users) // 'users' is a List of emails

{

try

{

Appointment appointment = new Appointment(service);

appointment.ReminderMinutesBeforeStart = 24*60;

appointment.Subject = Subject.Text;

appointment.Body = Body.Text;

appointment.Start = DateTime.Now;

appointment.End = DateTime.Now.AddHours(1);

Mailbox mbox = new Mailbox(user); // Get the

user's mailbox. Must have Delegate access to this user's mailbox.

FolderId folder = new

FolderId(WellKnownFolderName.Calendar, mbox); // Save in their default

Calendar.

appointment.Save(folder);

// Save IDs of Appointments created for saving

// with user data and potentially for Updates

// to the Appointment in the future.

itemIds.Add(appointment.Id);

}

catch (Exception ex)

{

MessageBox.Show("error for " + user + " - " +

ex.Message);

}

}
