Outlook 2007 Shared Calendar and tasks. VERY Urgent

I have several users who are executive assitants to executives. All of them

currently use Outlook 2003. They have full access to their bosses Email

Inboxes, calendars and tasks. We are moving them to Office 2007, including

Outlook 2007. The problem lies in how 2007 displays the shared Tasks and

calendar. in 2003, you had the Tasks and calendar (of the shared inbox) in

the same view, allowing them to monitor both at once. I am unable to find the

same setting, or any setting that displays another users calendar and tasks

(both shared, editor permission granted) in the same view. Does this exist in

2007 and if so, how do I set it to display? I know it now displays your own

tasks below your calendar (if it is displaying 1 week or daily). It also

shows in your own To-Do bar. Can the shared users To-Do bar be displayed?

Help!

You can't add shared tasks to the to-do bar, or shared appointments for that

matter. You need to use the calendar folder to see shared calendars. Tasks

will be in the tasks module.

So this has changed in 2007 from 2003? This was a feature that these

executive assistants all found very useful.

Outlook 2003 didn't have a To Do bar.

Correct, the tasks won't carry over to the taskpad (which is at the bottom

of the calendar in 2007) when you view other calendars.

No, but 2003 had a taskpad that showed shared tasks when you viewed the

calendar.
