Attaching Files to Meeting Invitations in Outlook 2011
I was asked by one of our users today how to attach files to a meeting invitation in Outlook 2011. After some research, here’s how you do it:
1. Set up a new meeting invitation in Outlook 2011.
2. Once the meeting invite opens up, drag your file you want to attach into the blank gray area to the right of Duration.
Your attachment will then appear in a newly-appearing attachment line below the start and end time for the meeting.
Interestingly enough, you can’t add files to Outlook 2011 appointments. If you need to add a file attachment to an appointment, click the Invite button in your Appointment window.
The appointment will then turn into a meeting invite and allow you to attach files. Invite your own email address and hit the Send button to add the event to your calendar.
