As a top-level element of the Calendar class, the ResponseType element is an optional element that specifies the type of response made by the user to a meeting request.

As an optional child element of the Exception element (section, the ResponseType element specifies the type of response made by the user to a recurring meeting exception. If the ResponseType element is not specified as a child element of an Exception element, the value of the ResponseType element for the exception is assumed to be the same as the value of the top-level ResponseType element.

A command request MUST NOT include the ResponseType element, either as a top-level element or as a child element of the Exception element.

A command response has a maximum of one top-level ResponseType element per response, and a maximum of one ResponseType child element per Exception element.
