Manage calendar updates the same as Outlook online
When changes are made to a meeting invite from within the Teams calendar - e.g. adding a new attendee - an update is sent to ALL attendees. The expected behaviour is that the update logic used by Outlook Online is used as per the article below - https://support.microsoft.com/en-gb/help/3197165/send-updates-options-for-attendees-are-not-displayed-in-outlook-on-the
I have a group of >200 I'm a spammer ifI chnage something on a teams appointment. Please follow Outlook, updates only to those who have changed.

This is a very frustrating issue to deal with. I have had to make multiple changes to a meeting series which is notifying all attendees, and then if I need to remove attendees who are no longer with the company, that action is also notifying all attendees which is totally unnecessary. Please implement this critical functionality.

Yeah, this is a major issue, makes me actually not want to use teams actually. It's one of the only reasons. But I can't keep destroying management's inboxes while I am getting ready for a meeting.

This is a huge problem and our user mailboxes are flooded with meeting updates. I sincerely hope that Microsoft will implement a solution soon.
This would be very useful! It's frustrating when you make one tiny change to a meeting and everyone gets notified when there is no need for this. Having the same functionality as Outlook would be good. Strangely, I've cancelled meetings previously and they were removed from my calendar but no one elses - this would have been a good time for all to be informed about the change.
The inability to save an invite without sending is very painful. Often I get nearly complete with the invite and want to add a link to a document in teams, only to find that I have to cancel the invite to get the link and then have to recreate the invite. I have to make work arounds if I have more than 1 link to add. This needs to be fixed.

This feature change would eliminate the need to send every update to every attendee when it might not be needed. It would also make the transition to Teams smoother if it acted in the same manner that Outlook does.
We are using the Web client for the time being due to being on non-persistent Windows 7 VDI's. So we can book Teams meetings through Outlook. This functionality would be appreciated.
