The difference between these two is worth discussing, as Outlook uses each type in a very specific scenario.Basically, this is the topic for this blog, with a focus on describing the scenarios that trigger either a full or informational update.Additionally, you will learn how to make Outlook send a specific type of update, depending on the meetings properties that you want to change.In a few words, in Outlook 20 you can no longer make critical changes on a meeting without sending an update.If a meeting request is sent out, when a user is trying to find out who's accepting and declining the request; the tracking tab is not picking up the responses.I've tested this myself, and it's been very inconsistant. The file does not require the use of this sequence number, so the Black Berry Enterprise Server does not normally set it.This is acceptable to Microsoft Outlook as if there is no sequence number available then it assumes the response is to the most recent instance of the meeting.
If you really need to track responses you need a dedicated Active Directory account, and you can add a second profile in your outlook to view it's calendar.
This issue happens when the following steps occur: In order to track updates to meetings made by organizers and the responses to those updates by the attendees, Microsoft Outlook uses a sequence number that determines what the most recent update to that meeting is.
Responses to the meeting that contain a sequence number older then the one currently in use are considered out of date and do not update the Tracking Information.
The informational message appears in the light blue box in the following image: Public and private properties of a meeting are properties that exist when a meeting is created.
For the most part, as an attendee you can change these properties for any meeting that you have accepted or tentatively accepted.
