Office 365 Update: Direct to Calendar invites

Direct to calendar is a new Office 365 feature. You can begin using this feature today.
How does this affect me?

With the Direct to Calendar feature in Exchange Online, administrators can configure mail flow rules (also known as transport rules) that allow designated users to add meetings to other users calendars. The benefits of Direct to calendar are:
– The event is automatically added to the recipient’s calendar without any action from them. If the user received the meeting invitation, it’s on their calendar.
– The sender doesn’t need to deal with Out of Office or other unwanted response messages that result from sending meeting invitations to a large number of recipients.
– No meeting-related messages are seen by attendees unless the meeting is cancelled.

What do I need to do to prepare for this change?
