Microsoft Outlook – do external meeting attendees see colour categories?

An interesting request recently was from a client where they wanted internal staff to know what room a meeting would be in but they didn’t want external attendees to know the meeting room!

The way we got round this problem was to colour categorise the various meeting rooms – actually the client already had the meeting rooms categorised in this way which was very handy!

When an invite is sent out the location can then just be the building location; internal staff will know which room the meeting will be in as their invites will show the appropriate colour category; external attendees will not see the colour coding.
