Reminder alarms not working with shared calendars

I am using Outlook 2007 with a hosted Exchange Server 2003. I have my
main/default calendar and 3 shared calendars. I have Owner access to all of
the calendars.

I can create appointments on any of the calendars. However, when the
reminder time for the appointments arrive, the alarm does not activate. I
never get a reminder no matter if I choose 15 minutes or 2 hours before the
appointment.

Also, I get the message "No upcoming appointments" on the To-Do Bar
Navigator. I have several appointments on the calendars.

What do I need to change in order to get the reminder alarms to alert me at
the appropriate times?

Reminders work only in your default folders unless you use a third-party
tool like http://www.slovaktech.com/remindermanager.htm

Re: Reminder alarms not working with shared calendars

Brian,

I downloaded and installed the software. I have not been able to get the
Configuration Manager to recognize any of the shared calendars. It only sees
my Default Calendar.

I've sent a Request for Help to the tech support link that's inside of the
program.

In the meantime, are there any other solutions that I can begin to explore?

Thanks.

Re: Reminder alarms not working with shared calendars


After talking with Ken, we got everything worked out. There are three (3)
ways to share folders in Outlook. You have to use the option where you
actually add the mailboxes that you want to share TO your own account.

You can't use the File -> Open -> Other User's Folder
You can't use the method where you share by accepting an email Share
Invitation.

You must go to
Tools -> Account Settings
Highlight your Exchange Account
Click Change
Click More Settings (at the bottom right of the page)
Click Advanced Tab (at top of page)
Click Add button

Now you can add all of the Exchange Mailboxes (IE - users) that you want to
share.

Now, there are some other steps that you have to set up within Exchange ON
THE SERVER in terms of permissions. And each person who has a mailbox that
you want to share STILL has to give you permission to share the mailbox. But
hopefully, this will get you going.

Hope this helps someone else.

Ken's program is awesome!
