Default A particular "shared" or joint calendar implementation - is it possible?

My team uses Outlook 2016. I understand that the mail server is now at Microsoft / Office365 (having moved from a local Exchange server). We use a shared calendar to track certain deadlines. Each team member creates entries for his/her deadlines, and moves and deletes them as appropriate. Everyone else can see the entries. This is partly due to historical/legacy reasons, and I can't get them to change to more appropriate task management software.

I believe that the shared calendar belongs to a rarely used account (or one that doesn't use the calendar).

I'm looking for a more sensible approach to this, within the confines of the Outlook calendar system. Some of the things that frustrate me are:
I can't quickly view *my* deadlines, among the sea of everyone else's.
I can't put *my* deadlines in another calendar and have them sync with this calendar.

Does anyone have any suggestions? I was thinking something like each team member having their own deadline calendar that is synced with a shared calendar. But it would be important that people (especially our team leader) can view the complete calendar, displaying everyone's deadlines.

Hi
The standard Outlook group calendar may do the trick.
So everyone adds to/edits/deletes in their own calendar and you combine everything in one view.
Here a link to microsoft explanation of it

You can alternatively try Exchange Group Calendar
Again you work in your personal calendar but what you do there is synced to shared calendars if your item is relevant to that combined calendar. (based on category, subject etc.)

regards,
John
