So…maybe I’m doing it wrong… it I’ve not figured this out yet.
I have a shared iCloud calendar created under my iCloud account and then shared it with my wife so we each have our own calendar as well as r/w access to the combined one. What we want to happen is either of us can put an event on the calendar and then set alerts…and the alerts to show up on all of our devices (iOS and watch mostly). The problem is that the alerts only happen for the one that created the event.
We’ve tried both having invitees and not…doesn’t solve the problem.
The events show up on all devices regardless of originator. We can work around the issue by creating two events…one on combined and then the other of us creates their own corresponding event on the personal calendar…that works but you get 2 entries and is extra work. We can also work around by enabling the default all events alert in Preferences…but there are events that don’t need alerts and this just generates alert overload.
So…is it not possible to have a shared calendar and either share-ee can set alerts for some events that will alert on both share-ee’s devices? Maybe I’m just missing something obvious.
