Hey @vertical this is currently how the Meetings tool is designed to work. When you add a contact record to a scheduled HubSpot meeting they will be notified. Could you provide some further detail as to why you do not want the customer to be notified?

I am having the same issue. To answer your question @roisinkirby, I would like to control all communications with my customers, including brand, etc. If I allow the system to send the email, I have not control over what is being sent to my customer. So, sometimes I might like to use this system for appt confirmation, etc and then other times I might like to do this manually.

 

Is there a way to not add an attendee?

Same issue here. 

 

Why should MY notes shared outside my organization?

I'd also like to be able to opt out of sending a client a notification when I schedule a meeting. Meetings are sometimes for business development or other long-term strategic goals and it is helpful to have a scheduled meeting on the records in HubSpot, a notification sent to the Google calendar of teammates who are attending, and talking points logged privately.

Hey, I'm new to HubSpot and this was incredibly surprising to me. I could not believe that the client must be included for notes on a meeting.

 

If you could change this, it would be very useful, until then, I will not be logging meetings in this manner.

If I don't want to spam the contact, I've already set up the meeting with them out of band, it's not helpful. 

 

Question - if I add a contact to a meeting, does it then spam all the existing attendees with an update? That would be very bad as well.

Has this issue been addressed? I cannot fathom why meetings notes in my internal tool would be by default shared with my client / prospect, let alone how I can't even prevent that from happening. If I want to follow up with the client, I will follow up with them, including deliverables, timelines etc. But not from Hubspot. 

 

But I do want to record that a) I had said meeting and with whom and b) what was said in the meeting. 

 

Any solution to this would be much appreciated.

has this been addressed to be optional whether to send invite notification to client or note?

Same problem here. Functionality of HubSpot connected with GC is awesome, but lack of possibility to remove an attendee is disappointing a bit. Anyone have some idea?

I have also been playing around with meetings in Hubspot and find it odd that the default meeting screen includes all attendees and I have to deselect the ones that I don't want to attend. Can it be revresed? I would rather start scheduling a meeting with no attenddess then add the ones the meeting was intended for. Does anyone have a work around?
