How to get here...
- When a meeting request is received in your email program, and the request contains an iCalendar (ics) attachment, open the attachment in VueMinder. This can usually be accomplished by double-clicking the attachment. You can also save the attachment to your computer and then drag-and-drop it into the VueMinder window.
VueMinder can process
These meeting requests can originate from other users of
VueMinder, which provides a "New Meeting Request"
command on the File menu. The
request can also originate from another other calendar software
that uses the iCalendar file standard for meeting requests
(note, this does not include Microsoft Outlook). When a meeting
request email is received containing an iCalendar (ics)
attachment, open the attachment in VueMinder. Depending
on your email program, this can usually be accomplished by
double-clicking the attachment. The meeting will be
automatically added to your calendar and a Meeting Response
window shown. On the Meeting Response window, you can choose to
accept, tentatively accept, or decline the invitation. You can
also choose whether to send the response to the meeting
organizer. If you decline the meeting, it will be removed from
Sending a Response
Buttons at the lower-right corner of the window allow the meeting request to be accepted or declined. An email will be sent to the meeting organizer with your response.
The organizer name or email address will be shown at the top of the window as a link, along with any other recipients of the meeting request. You can click any of these links to initiate a new email using your default email program. For example, if you're declining the meeting invitation and would like to provide the organizer a reason, you could click the organizer's name to send an email explaining the situation.
The meeting details will be shown in the middle of the window. This includes the meeting title, location, calendar, category, priority, date/time, duration, and description. The description can include pictures or links if VueMinder was used to generate the meeting request (pictures need to be located on the web or a common server in order to be visible). The meeting can be opened in the Event Editor by clicking its title link. This will allow you to enter additional information about the meeting or define reminders. In addition, when hovering the mouse over the meeting details, buttons will appear at the bottom. These buttons allow the meeting details to be printed, copied to the Windows clipboard, or emailed.
