Outlook calendar invites not processing

Hey there, I have an exchange 2013 at my head end and we all use a calendar that we stuffed into the public folder area as a common calendar.  When we create appointments on the public calendar, we 'invite' those that the calendar appointment corresponds to.  
If I create a calendar event and invite jason@ourdomain.com, jason receives the invite to his calendar fine....
If Jason creates a calendar appointment and invites me, I get the appointment just fine in my inbox and the sniffer places as tentative on my calendar until I accept.
if I create an appointment for myself and invite myself, I do not get a notification nor does it go tentative on my calendar.  I can of course 'copy to my calendar' but it can easily be missed if I am in a hurry making appointments.

Anyone run into this before?  I have done the /cleansniff and /sniff switches but with no resolution.
Thanks

Hi bcameron70,
Unless you are the owner of the calendar, I would think it would be best to create the event on your own calendar and invite everyone, including the shared calendar to the event. Is there a reason you don't do that?

I do not do it that was because it shows up tentative on the public calendar, it there an autoaccept I need to turn on with that shared calendar or delegation?
Karen FalandaysTraining SpecialistCommented:
Yes, there is a way to auto accept and auto reject conflicting meeting requests. Have a look at this link on Slipstick to view the script http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/calendar/scheduling-resources-outlook/

We have an exchange 2013 at the head end, the 2007 link was dead to a new drop page at Microsoft, do you have a direct reference to the script?
Karen FalandaysTraining SpecialistCommented:
Sorry about that, let me check. Also, is this calendar in the public folder a resource? Are you the owner of the calendar?

the appointment calendar is mail enabled and I am an owner of it
bcameron70Author Commented:
My other guys have no troubles sending themselves an invitation when creating the appointment
Karen FalandaysTraining SpecialistCommented:
I believe that is because you own the calendar. Let's see if there is another workaround for you

ok, thanks

So if you create the meeting in the Public folder and invite yourself, even if you don't click to copy to calendar you should get a message once you send it asking if you would like to copy to your calendar, right?
As for autoaccepting the meeting requests, it looks like the only way to do that is if the calendar is set up as a resource, but I am still researching that for you
