My team has recently upgraded to Outlook 2010 from Outlook 2003 (Exchange 2003 is our back end) and we've noticed shared reminders popping up for all the shared calendars.  Neat option but not all of us want to see these reminders.  How or can the shared reminders be turned off in Outlook 2010?

You can turn reminder on or off.
To turn off goto...File (tab) > Options > Advanced > Reminders > uncheck show reminders > ok

or you can just uncheck the shared calendars and only check them when you wish to view them

Turning off reminders in Advanced options turns off all reminders.  Neither of those options provides me with what I want in the end....to view the shared calendars (at all times) but only recieve my calendar reminders.  Bummer! :O(

Was not a complete solution to my request but rather a partial work-around.
