iCloud just spammed my coworkers with tons of calendar invites
Bugreport filed by me this morning: #10323953
At 10:23pm EST last night (Oct 20, 2011), iCloud sent meeting invitations to many of my co-workers. These are meetings where I am not the organizer, however the invitations being sent are showing me as the organizer.
My work is on MS Outlook. When I have to attend a work meeting and expect I will not be in the office, I forward the outlook invitation to my home/personal e-mail. I then open the invitation and add it to my personal calendar (either thru iPhone or iCal). This way, I get a reminder to call into the meeting even though I might be away from my office. This has worked reliably for years.
For these meetings, I am NOT the organizer, just an invitee/participant.
Somehow, last night, iCloud decided that I am the "organizer" for these reminders in my personal calendar, and sent out new meeting requests to all the other invitees at their work e-mail addresses. These new meeting requests show me as the organizer.
I'm not the meeting organizer, and now all my coworkers are confused about having all these duplicate invitations.
Steps to Reproduce:
Unknown. This just happened. I upgraded to iOS5 about a week ago, and let iCloud sync my calendars at that time. I have made no iCloud settings changes in the last several days. Also, these meeting reminders have been in my calendar for a long time, and I made no changes to them in the last week. I was asleep last night when all this happened, so am sure it wasn't something I had done yesterday to cause this.
Well, this is totally unexpected, so I don't know what to say here. This is creating chaos with my coworkers.
Just got a call from a coworker. He is getting similar invites from other vendors that seem to have had the same thing happen to them.
