Enable Shared Calendar Reminders for Allowed Shared Users Permission
It will be a great feature to have an option to turn off/on shared calendar reminders for Shared Users in order to get notification.
We understand there's an issue that this was turn off by default due to some users doesn't want to get any reminder from the shared calendar/mailbox.
It will be great if this can be enhance on the Outlook-client level or OWA.
It will be an added advantage

We use shared calendars within our organization for various projects, etc. and when the calendar alerts were shut off without notice, we missed appointments because we were used to receiving the calendar alerts. What is the point of a calendar if you can't get alerts? This is an important feature of any calendar and we were very unhappy with how much this has disrupted workflow and how much time I spent on the phone with microsoft support trying to figure out what happened. I now have a work around solution (which was more time spent on the phone with support) and it seems it would have been a lot easier just to create an option to shut off calendar alerts instead of remove the feature all together.
It does not make sense to have the shared calendars hability in shared mailbox when it is not possible to receive notifications of those calendars....
Please, its very important
Shared Calendar reminders for shared mailbox is an important feature. Many our customer is requiring it in OWA and Outlook Desktop. When we explain it's not avalaible in Office 365 they are not so happy.
We hope it will be implemented in next months.
I would settle for 2 options:
1. As a delegate for 5 different high-level executives, I need the ability to turn off calendar notifications (accept/decline updates) for calendar invites that are NOT scheduled by me on behalf of the user. That would significantly reduce the rapid-fire incoming to my mailbox.
2. If the above is not possible or feasible, I would appreciate the ability to differentiate the notifications from invitations intended for me (that I need to accept/decline) and the users I delegate for WITHOUT having to read the entire thing and examine it for clues (remember I get hundreds of these daily from within and outside the organization.) SOME of them do indicate "On behalf of..." (very small down at the bottom) but most of them do not, and they allow me the opportunity to accept or decline as if I am the person being invited. THANK YOU for giving me an opportunity to vote!
