How can I turn off alerts for iCloud calendars that have been shared with me? I just want to see alerts for my calendar.

Example: My girlfriend has a haircut today, and she set an alert to appear 15 minutes before the event. I don't want to see that alert.

Background: Here is the procedure for iCal: http://howto.cnet.com/8301-11310_39-57562853-285/turn-off-ical-shared-calendar-messages-in-notification-center/?_escaped_fragment_=

This is different on iOS 8.

As described on iPad Academy, the option is located in Settings > Notifications > Calendar > Shared Calendar Changes.

1. Settings > Notifications

Go to SettingsMail, Contacts, CalendarsShared Calendar Alerts and slide the switch off.

When enabled, you will be notified about new, modified or deleted shared events.

Yeah, got that one turned off. It seems to silence alerts for creation, modification, and deletion of events. There's another type of user-settable another alert(s) that can happen before an event. I'd like to turn those off too. –  Jeff Street Sep 18 '13 at 15:25
