Reminders from someone else's calendar

Hi Experts,

Environment: Microsoft Exchange v6.5.6944.0 (SP1). Outlook 2002 Clients.

Jenny works for John, and has access to John's calendar. She uses it to make appointments for John, inserting them directly into his calendar.

Jenny needs to be able to be reminded about John's appointments, so she can remind him as well. She needs to be able to do this without having permissions to John's entire mailbox (she needs access to calendar only).

Is there a solution for this?

Hi stdcitunit,

Not using reminders.  Reminders only fire on the owner's computer.  There is currently no way for a reminder to fire on a delegate's computer.  The closest you could get would be to have John's computer email Jenny a reminder email.  This would require either a script or a third-party solution.  A scripted approach would suffer from one particular problem.  It would only work while Outlook was open and running on John's computer.  

Cheers!
