Not all activity party types are available for each activity in Microsoft Dynamics 365, except for a custom activity. A custom activity supports all activity party types. You can associate an activity party type for an activity by using the respective attribute of an activity. For example, to associate an Organizer activity party type with an appointment activity, you must specify a value or an array of values of the ActivityParty type in the Appointment.Organizer attribute.

To control which email address should be used for sending emails to the activity party, or for replying to emails from the activity party, set the ActivityParty.AddressUsed attribute.

The following table lists the activity party types that are supported for each activity, and the corresponding activity properties to specify those activity party types.
