setting acceptance quota in an Outlook meeting request

By lscottk0 ·
A VP at the company that I work for wants to send out a meeting request to 80 people. However, he wants to set a quota of 50 positive responses to attend the meeting. In other words the first 50 responses saying that they will attend the meeting will be accepted. Anyone who responds after the first 50 responses accepting the meeting request will be told that the meeting is full. Does anyone know how to do this in Outlook 2003? All of our clients are Outlook 2003 and we are running Exchange 2003 as well.

Thanks for any suggestions!

I don't believe it's possible........

... at least not in Outlook 2003. The VP will have to send the first 50. Then, based on the number that accept, determine how many more to send to. Of course, this isn't quite what the VP wants (first come, first served), but it's the best Outlook 2003 can do.

You might want to look into another software package. For example, try looking at event ticket sales packages. These can issue tickets for the event up to the limit specified, then show the event fully booked and won't issue any more tickets.

(edit spelling)
