I created a shared calendar for 6-7 people to be able to get important reminders about events throughout the year. I just found out that only I am receiving the reminders, which completely defeats the purpose of my creating the calendar. I have been searching the threads, and so far the only solution viable for my situation is to change the calendar events to meetings and invite the people who need to get the reminders. I am ok with this EXCEPT that 1) they will be getting more email in their Inbox and 2) there is no logical reason why this functionality can't have been addressed by now. If it is a privacy issue, then just add a tool to be able to turn it off. Has anyone come across a real, viable, logical solution?

It's not a privacy issue - is a reminder spam issue. Outlook only shows reminders from the user's accounts, not shared mailboxes. There is macro that will send email reminders or the users can add the calendar to their profile and copy the events to their own calendar. The exchange admin could also load events onto their calendars - this is usually used for company wide events.
