My wife and I both use iPhones and have an Outlook.com premium mail account which allows it to be used with a custom domain. My wife has shared her outlook.com calendar with me and I have shared my outlook.com calender with her. This has worked fine for several years. Events display in each other calendars and we can edit them if necessary.
However of late new events entered by either of us go in as meetings and send an invite to the other person asking to accept or decline the event. (See attached screenshot)

You can no longer edit the event such as add an address or a note etc. I am not sure if this an iOS/Apple problem or a change Microsoft has made to Outlook.com? I suspect the latter as agendas sent out by our Village Hall secretary using Office 365 Outlook.com for meetings automatically sends a zoom invitation to one recipient as they have attended by Zoom once before. The secretary only sent out the email?? Perhaps its MS new CoPilot being overly clever!!!
Any suggestions greatfully received
 
On the zoom, part - that is definitely weird if the sender did not add it (hybrid meetings are being rolled out in the coming weeks but I didn't think anyone had the feature yet) if using a Microsoft 365 business account.

On your problems - I suspect there was a change on the Microsoft side - unless permissions were changed (and you no longer have permission to create new items on her calendar) then it will do the invitation when you create an event on another calendar.

Thanks Diane,
Ive logged in to each account calendar and deleted the shared calendar and then set it up again. I'll need to wait for the changes to sync and then try again. If I still have problems I'll post on an outlook.com forum. As always thanks for your help.
