Send updates only to added or deleted attendees
When meeting attendees are added or removed from Teams, there is no option to "Send updates only to added or deleted attendees", as there is in Outlook.

This option is very much required in a corporate environment for the highly organized VIP users/EA, who look after their calendar.
Its very difficult to manage if the recipients are more
Also sending update to all which is unnecessary if there is no major change in the meeting

Completely agree! Especially for large and complex meetings, it's really confusing and annoying for everyone to have to receive a new meeting request and respond.
Also, when scheduling a Teams meeting in a channel, if a new person gets added to a team and a standing meeting, it doesn't automatically come onto their calendar when they get added to the team. They have to be manually added to the meeting series (and then the whole thing gets updated to everyone). Causes a ton of confusion!

I understand this is possible through Outlook as a workaround, but enabling this option within MS Teams instead would alleviate so much confusion, and time wasted explaining to my participants that nothing has changed, as well as the influx of duplicate email responses received with every update.

Over two years and no updates? Come ON
Please add this feature to MS Teams. The addition/deletion of individual attendees is a frequent occurrence in a large organization. It causes confusion with existing attendees to send multiple invites for the same meeting.
It is not viable to hold meetings in channels without this.

A very useful feature in Outlook that should be replicated in Teams meetings/live events for presenters. Updates to all causes confusion for existing attendees, please upvote and add to backlog - thanks!
The kids in my class complain they get so many emails when I add late comers.
Our organization is transitioning from Skype for Business and Teams lacks basic Outlook invite functionality, including above and ability to add external contacts from address book.
