8.1. Schedule-Reply Request Header
When an "Attendee" removes a scheduling object resource as per Section 18.104.22.168, and the Schedule-Reply header is set to the value "T" (true) or is not present, the server MUST send an appropriate reply scheduling message with the "Attendee's" "PARTSTAT" iCalendar property parameter value set to "DECLINED" as part of its normal scheduling operation processing.
When the Schedule-Reply header is set to the value "F" (false), the server MUST NOT send a scheduling message as part of its normal scheduling operation processing.
The Schedule-Reply request header is used by a client to indicate to a server whether or not a scheduling operation ought to occur when an "Attendee" deletes a scheduling object resource. In particular, it controls whether a reply scheduling message is sent to the "Organizer" as a result of the removal. There are situations in which unsolicited scheduling messages need to be silently removed (or ignored) for security or privacy reasons. This request header allows the scheduling object resource to be removed if such a need arises.

Need to test your iCalendar feeds? The iCalendar Validator provides developers and testers a method to validate their iCalendar feeds, which can take data from either a URL, file or text snippet and compare it against the RFC 5545 specification. We believe we have one of the best iCalendar validation tools available on the internet. More information about the validator can be found here.
