    "This is to inform you that we have put the daily meeting on hold, as you requested."
    There are other possibilities, but I think this covers your intended meaning.

    Re: use of Suppose

    The word "suppose" can mean two things each of which changes its usage. (1)It can mean "think"... I suppose you are a teacher.In the past form,just as "think" becomes "thought","suppose" also becomes "supposed"...when I saw him in that attire I Supposed he was a king. (2)"suppose" may also mean "expected to" but in this context it must always carry a "d" and must be preceded by a verb "be"...she is supposed to...I am supposed to...we are supposed to etc
