Summary:
Outlook and Teams are introducing a new meeting response called 'Follow' for attendees who can't attend but want to stay informed. It's rolling out from late May 2024 to mid-July 2024, initially in the new Outlook for Windows and the web, not on Mac or mobile. Organizers will be notified of 'Follow' responses, and users will be marked as free but kept in the loop.

Details:
Updated June 6, 2024: We have updated the rollout timeline below. Thank you for your patience.
Coming soon in Microsoft Outlook and Microsoft Teams: We are introducing a new meeting response option called Follow that allows people invited to a meeting to let the organizer know they can't attend but would like to stay informed. Follow goes beyond the traditional Accept, Tentative, and Decline responses. Follow is for busy individuals with high meeting loads and conflicting meetings. Follow is the ideal meeting response option when you can't attend a meeting but still want to stay engaged and have access to post-meeting information in Teams. Meeting attendees can respond with Follow in the new Outlook for Windows and Outlook on the Web. Follow is not available on Outlook for Mac or Outlook Mobile at this time. Additional Follow features in Teams for meeting organizers are shown in the screenshots in this message.
