I have nasty problem I need to resolve and I need your help with this. So problem is the following. Three users have shared calendar which is connected to their outlook clients. One of these users has full access to this calendar and other to have only read only access. Such a scheme was done at their request. And now there goes a problem - user with full rights creates new appointment. This appointment appears in other users outlook clients. And these two users do not want to forget about this appointment so they want to set reminders for this event. But when they open appointment, change reminder and try to save it - they see access denied because they have only read right. So my question is - is it possible to somehow let these two users to set reminder in their outlook and retain read only right in sharepoint? As I can understand - outlook reminder is local to every outlook client and it seems as it is local to outlook only, because I can't have sharepoint reminders in outlook:( So is it possible to achieve what I want to do? Thanks.

As far as I know, if you connect SharePoint calendar into Outlook client, Outlook client will access this calendar through HTTP protocol. It doesn’t mean it is local to Outlook. So you have to grant the other users write permission.

So please explain me the following logic then:
First user connects sharepoint calendar to outlook. Then he creates appointment and sets reminder to 1 day. Then next user connects the same calendar to his outlook to. He sees this new appointment, opens it, but reminder is set to None. Then he sets reminder to lets say 2 days. First user opens appointment and reminder is still set to 1 day. From that I can assume that reminder option is not shared between users. Am I wrong? But user still has write permission to calendar to change reminder option. So reminder is not shared, I can't see this reminder in sharepoint calendar is I access this calendar through the web, so why does this user need write permission to calendar?

Else, they can save the event in their outlook as separate entity if they want to play around with the calendar options.

Please, explain me the following:
User creates appointment is sharepont calendar and sets reminder to be 2 hours. Next user connects the same calendar and opens created appointment. Reminder is set to none. Why is that? You're saying that outlook reminders are not local to each user. So why does user see reminder set to None?
