What's New in the Meeting Maker Admin v8.7.0

Meeting Change Notification Enhancement

You can now enable or disable meeting change notification. When you enable this feature, guests must re-accept a meeting if the agenda, title, guests, location, or the meeting time changes. By default, this option is disabled: Guests are not notified if the agenda, title, or guests change. Guests must always re-accept a meeting if the location or the meeting time changes. If you change one or more occurances of a recurring meeting but not all occurances, all guests will need to re-accept.
