I've created an O365 Group with an Executive Calendar.  They want to add all their meetings, but do not want the meetings to be added to all the Group Members personal calendars.   What is the best way to have this type of calendar in O365?   It doesn't have to be an O365 Group, I used that so they could email and add the meetings to the calendar, but then it adds the meetings to all group members calendars.  I've tried adding a Calendar App (Classic), which can be sync'd to Outlook, but not able to email that calendar, so the meetings would either need to be dragged to the Executive Calendar or reentered for each meeting.  Is there a good solution?

Hello, @KimWilliams, the best way to handle this scenario is to use a shared mailbox as the executive calendar instead of an O365 group. Here's how you can do this:


Create a new shared mailbox in Exchange Online.


Give the appropriate users access to the shared mailbox by adding them as members.

In Outlook, add the shared mailbox to your account. Create a calendar in the shared mailbox and use it as the executive calendar.


Schedule all the meetings in the executive calendar in the shared mailbox. This way, the meetings will only appear in the executive calendar in the shared mailbox and not in the personal calendars of the group members. They can still access the executive calendar and add meetings to it by using Outlook, and they can also receive email notifications for meetings scheduled in the executive calendar.
