How can I view Group Schedules that were setup previously using Outlook 2003 that contain multiple, selectable groups?

I am considering upgrading to Office 2010 however, in testing, I have come across an issue concerning Group Schedules.

Previously Group Schedules were set up in Public Folders and multiple groups were created. In testing with Outlook 2010, I have not been able to find a way to view the Group Schedules so that I can select one of the groups. In previous editions of Outlook this was achieved by selecting "Actions\View Group Schedules..." from the toolbar menu.

Is there a way to be able to access our Group Schedule groups from Outlook 2010? If not we may have to reconsider the upgrade as this is one important aspect of operation that we require to maintain going forward.

No, its not possible and I'm not expecting any changes at this time.... the reply I got was:

With the new Group Schedule in Outlook 2010, we do not migrate group schedules stored in Public Folders as we do the other legacy Group Schedules.

Having said that to manually migrate them, the user can create new local calendar groups  ([Calendar Group] - [Create New Calendar Group] from the Ribbon) and add any public folder calendars needed. In other words, we continue to support Group schedules that contain public folder calendars, but no longer migrate the stored group from Public folders.

Hope that helps.
