Opening a shared Calendar and Task list as the default

Hi there,

We are an office of 5 people with our own Exchange 2003 server.  Each of us has a local email account on this server and hence our own calendar.

The way our office operates however is that we all like to work off the one calendar file for one of our users, and also the one task list.

We have successfully shared this users calendar and task list so that when we each open our Outlook 2003 client, we can "unselect" the check box for our our calendar and task list and select this users shared calendat instead.

However, whenever we open Outlook 2003 (after closing it or first thing of a day), the calendar and task list automatically defaults to our own calendar ans task list, so we have to go through the process of unselecting our own check box and selecting the shared calendar each time.

Is there a way in Outlook 2003 where each time we open Outlook 2003 for any user and click on Calendar and Tasks that it automatically defaults to the shared calendar and task list for this other user so we don't have to go through that procedure each time?

Unfortunately not.
Outlook is designed to operate as a PIM, so operates on a personal level. When you get appointments they will default to your calendar, not the group calendar.
