Unable to set Outlook Reminders

We created a smartsheet and subscribe to the calendar using the publish to ical function. It displays correctly in Outlook, but when we try to set a reminder in the Outlook calendar it gives an error saving "the reminder for xxxx will not appear because the item is in a folder that doesn't support reminders". When I click ok I then get another error saying "You cannot make changes to contents of this read-only folder". Is there away to get around this?

    Published calendars are a one way sync, in that it will add data to your calendar but you cannot add additional reminders and tasks to the calendar. These can be set up within Smartsheet then will appear in your Outlook calendar.
