Outlook/Exchange Shared Calendar Change Alerts to Shared Users

We use Outlook to access our Exchange Server.  We also use the shared calender feature.  Updates/Changes happen frequently because of the number of users who share the calendar.  Is there a way to alert all users when updates/changes are made.  Or perhaps a daily schedule notifier of some sort?

Can you define "shared calendar feature"?

Are you talking about Public Folders?  Or each user is sharing their individual calendar?

It's a calendar stored in Public Folders.

If Public Folder, you could use the Folder Assistant:

Right click the public calendar folder,
Left click on Properties,
Click Administration Tab,
Click Folder Assistant,
Click Add Rule,
Click nothing but Forward To.. at the bottom
Add your distribution list or contacts and click OK through the boxes...

Better than nothing.  You can play with the rule once you get it working.
