Sending updates only to added or deleted attendees no longer an option in Outlook 365/Outlook 2016

Recently users in my company have reported that the feature in Outlook that allows you to send a meeting invitation only to newly added or deleted attendees no longer works in Outlook.  We are on Outlook 365 and use the Outlook 2016 desktop version.  If we try adding one new person,the entire list of attendees receives the invite even though no details about the meeting have changed.  It no longer gives you the option to only send the invite to the newly added person.  This is a real problem since we have hundreds of invitations to update and don't want all attendees getting an invitation to something they already replied to.  PLEASE HELP!

I'm thinking there may have been an update recently to our software and this is a bug that needs fixing fast.
