    I can not seem to find a way to invite an attendee to a new or existing appointment or event on my calendar. Does anyone know if this is possible?

    Currently the Android Calendar is very limited. The desktop and even mobile web (via android browser) calendars have more features. Hopefully this changes soon.

    +1 This is the very first thing that I have found that my Hero cant do that my Blackberry could. All in all, if there are only a few minor things I have to sacrifice for the time being, I am a very ecstatic Android Convert!! :D

    I find many of the Google Android apps (PIM) especially lacking in comparison with the mobile and desktop versions. As explained to me by an insider, these are all developed in silos by teams. If one team comes up with a good feature the others add it to their priority list.

    I hope the Android App team looks closely at the weak PIM as an area to improve.

    In Gingerbread, this is an option and it seems to work fine with any service that isn't Google Calendar (go figure...). BUT, I found the solution: Each user who is using Google Calendar has to edit their own settings as such:

    Invitation not received
    If you're having trouble with Google Calendar's invitation feature, please send your invitations again to see if the problem persists. You may want to ask your guests to make sure that the invitation did not end up in their spam filter mailbox.

    Also, if your guests currently use Google Calendar, please ask them to make sure that their notification settings are set to receive email notifications for invitations. If the New invitations setting is not enabled for email notifications, they won't receive your invitation. To check this setting, please ask them to follow these steps:

    In the calendar list on the left, click the down-arrow button next to the appropriate calendar, then select Notifications.
    In the Choose how you would like to be notified section, select the box next to New Invitations and any other invitation notifications in the Email column.
    Click Save.
