Exec Asst. wants to recieve meeting invitations INSTEAD of having them go to the Exec.s so that she can manage their calendars/meetings for them.

Can this be done?  If so how?

If not ... Can it be set so that the Exec. Asst. gets the invitation as well & have this person's answer take effect?

(example: Exec. gets invitation, Asst. gets same invite or sees it and can answer on behalf of the Exec?)

Again How?
