Bcc Meeting Invites Do you need to send meeting invites without disclosing the distribution list? In email we can use the Bcc field to send emails to lots of people whilst keeping their email addresses confidential, and whilst that feature is not available in meeting invites, there is an option which achieves the same result. The required option is available in Outlook for Web, New Outlook for Windows and Outlook for Mac.
To use Hidden attendees set up your meeting request as normal and then BEFORE sending, choose to hide the attendee list, as described below.

Hidden Meeting Attendees is a helpful feature in Outlook that allows organizers to send meeting invites without revealing the complete distribution list, ensuring privacy among attendees. It is perfect for meetings when confidentiality is necessary or for managing larger groups of people where the list isn't essential to view for everyone. By using this feature, whichever Outlook platform you are using, you can maintain the discretion of your contacts and prevent undesired information from being disclosed, resulting in more productive and secure meeting experiences.
