A user in your community has created an event, and then clicked on the Add to calendar action in that event's Actions menu in order to download the .ics file for that event:
When the user opens the .ics file on their local computer in order to add this event to their Outlook calendar, they are unable to add it, as the message "No Response Required" appears instead of the button where they would normally be able to respond to the event:
Since the user is not given the option to respond to the event, they are unable to add this event to their Outlook calendar.
