Send Copilot to a Teams meeting instead

Tracking is only available in the new Outlook for Windows and Outlook on the Web.

Meeting organizer

If you are the meeting organizer, a Follow response lets you know that an attendee is unable to attend the meeting, but is following you and therefore wants to receive information about the meeting, including any available recordings or transcripts.

As the organizer, by requesting responses and choosing not to hide the list of attendees, other attendees will also be able to see all of the Follow responses.
