Office 365 Shared Mailbox - Calendar Reminders Possible ?

Greetings.  I created an Office 365 Shared Mailbox for the purpose of multiple people sharing a common Calendar.

Is it possible for calendar reminders set on that shared mailbox calendar to notify each member with the regular reminder popup ?  It doesn't seem to work that way by default.

Thanks much.

Only if you have added the shared mailbox as additional account, via the File -> Add account wizard (as opposed to adding it as additional mailbox via account settings -> more -> advanced).

Sorry, I'm not sure what you are referring to.  The shared mailbox was created in Office 365 under the Office 365 Admin, Shared Mailboxes option.  When you add members, it grants them Full Access and automaps the new mailbox/calendar.

I'm not familiar with your referenced "File, Add Account" wizard.

The way you added the shared mailbox in Outlook.

I didn't.  Automapping adds the mailbox automatically.

Which means it's added as additional mailbox, not additional account. Reminders wont work, you need to add it the other way.

OK, I got it.  Yeah, that's an option, but not ideal.  Thanks much.

Good suggestion, but not ideal for us.  We have 5 users sharing this shared mailbox.
