At work we use MS Outlook. Previously I set up a shared calendar in Sharepoint and all my team have it now linked to their outlook accounts.
I want to start using this calendar for scheduling releases and tasks within development life cycle. As we are a globally disperse team (3 teams - one in APAC, EMEA and NA) I thought the calendar would help serve as a reminder and a planning tool
Two things I need to be able to do
1) Prior to a meeting which is scheduled in my own personal calendar I get a reminder. However, I never get a reminder on the shared calendar items. How can I ensure that everyone gets a reminder x days in advance. Is it also possible to set multiple reminders - say first reminder is 7 days in advance, second reminder is 2 days in advance?
2) Is it possible to make some calendar items visible to some people and not others? For example team leads only need to be aware of some items, or BA's only need to be aware of others?
Thanks in advance
