Yep, same here, I couldn't see an appropriate setting in iCloud to turn it off.

mcg - did yours just start out of the blue? Here are some more specifics - I created the calendar on my icloud account then shared it with 3 family members. Worked great for about 3 months until tonight. Now, if any of us change an event on this shared calendar, the other three get an email. None of us changed anything. Agggggg!

Yes, it started totally out of the blue, I haven't changed anything recently. We've had this setup via iCloud for about 8 months - 15 calendars on my wife's account shared to my account and it's been working well.

Looks like others have this issue, I'm new to the forum, is there some way we make Apple aware of this as it is obviously a bug?

I'm not sure how to let Apple know about it. I had a quick look at the iCloud status page, there's no mention of this issue, there's the express lane option I suppose if you are current and have the time to persue it.

I found that everyone needs to turn off the notifications individually on their iphone. Settings > Mail, Contacts, Calendars > Scroll to the very bottom and Shared Calendar Alerts may by ON, turn OFF. Hope this helps.

Thanks for posting your suggestion, though I'm not sure this is the same issue. The issue in this thread was emails that started being sent by iCloud alerting of changes in shared calendars.
The latest issue is how to turn off the alerts in the "invitation" tray on iOS Calendar and iCal when changes are made to shared calendars.
I have 3 iOS 6 devices, all with "Shared Calendar Alerts" turned off and I'm still getting the alerts - it's stange because from the description of the setting it definitely sounds like this is the one that should turn them off.
Maybe it's only affects the notification center alerts, not the ones in the tray.

To fix the problem get a windows 8 tablet and use google calendars.

I think my problem is related but it is hard to figure just how "alerts/notification" are controlled.
In brief, how do I set calendar email alerts to be sent only to my computer? I already have a specific email address which is only sent to my computer. Why can't I get that address to in the alert list?
When making a new calendar event I want to set a email alert to the email address which only goes to MY computer. I'm not given the choice for MY address. The only choice i'm given is my shared email address.
In OS 10.8 I did find away to set multiple email address in the alert dropdown menu. It didn't work the way I wanted but at least I could set multiple addresses.
It seems to me that Apple should explain more fully just how alerts and notifications work. Of course the iCloud adds more confusion.
