Question: We have a mail-in database which is shared by a group. I am trying to create a calerdar entry with notification (eg events, reminder etc).. I want the notification to be sent to few email addresses... I tried the option in 'Alarm settings' but I have not received any mails.. Not sure whether there is a setting that should be activated.. (my calender preferences indicate that the alarm is enabled).. Any help is appreciated... I have access to mail-in database and my personal mail in Notes.. Alarm setting and notification works with my personal id but not from the mail-in database

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

Alarms are, I believe, user specific, and there is no user in a mail-in database. A meeting is the only way to send your calendar entry to other people, unless you simply forward the document, saying “Mark this on your calendar!”

You can create a meeting with an alarm setting, and all invitees that accept that meeting ALSO get the alarm unless they turn it off. If you don’t set the alarm, they have to set it individually.

Obviously, you can use a “Meeting” for a lot of things that aren’t really meetings, but this is the only way I can think of that you can “force notification” to other users. And even then, they still have to accept the invitation.
