    when creating a new event it's one of the settings? Just like if it should repeat or not? And all the other normal things you choose?

    I get to pick these things when creating a new event; (my iPhone is in Dutch so translated them myself, might be different on your iDevice)

    Name
    Location
    All Day Event
    Start
    End
    Time Zone (if enabled)

    Repeat

    Invitees

    Alarms

    Agenda (if multiple are used)

    Show as (busy, etc)

    URL

    What service are you using for the calendar? Is it an iCloud calendar?

    The calendar must support exchange (eg: outlook.com) in order for it to work.

    Google calendar has this feature when they support google sync for free customer but then they pull that feature. Now you will hate google don't you? :D

    note: I move to outlook.com since google pull the google sync feature. Outlook.com (for now) is the only free email provider with exchange feature.

    iCloud calendar likely have the invite feature as well but they are not exchange based. I prefer full exchange feature.

    I use invites to people with outlook from my iCloud-account, always seems to work nicely. Don't know much about those protocols though. :)

    No. CalDAV to Google Calendars is open source and works fine for sending/receiving calendar invites.

    We're talking about responding invites from built in calendar app. It doesn't work as per iOS6. If you said it works for iOS7, please attach screenshot so it doesn't mislead the OP

    I have all my accounts' contacts set to green, but Invite is still not working. Is there another fix?

    I'm having similar issue. If you open your event to edit, there's an "invitees" line on the same edit screen where you would enter your other event details such as time, location etc. Tap that and it opens a new email prompting you to 'add invitees'. Only thing is, mine opens and let's me add from my contacts who I want to invite, but the mail message it opens give no detail of the event and no option to 'send'. Once I add the invitees, I hit a dead end - I can't figure out how to send it!

    There is no send button. Once you have added the contacts you want, back out of edit and select done. Your contacts are auto notified.

    thanks

    Ok thanks - I was getting no confirmation or indication that the invite was mailing out, so I CC'd myself on the invite, and when I didn't receive the cc'd invitation in my mail inbox, I assumed it wasn't going out at all. What's actually happening, it appears, is that the iPhone won't let you cc yourself, or "invite" yourself, to your own event.

    iOS 7 calendar invite


    Exactly so. Because, the email address you used to cc yourself on the invite, also happened to be associated with the contact entry selected as the owner of the phone. If you use a different personal email not associated with your iPhone owner contact entry in the address book, it would work.
