You can subscribe people to the list by group or create a simple workflow that is fired off when the item is created.

You can more complex with the workflow if you like. If you want to Send a meeting invite for calender see the link.

  1. Create the new workflow. Add the send an email task. Look for the users you want emailed to and add them to it. enter image description here

  2. Then set the workflow to only run on creation. enter image description here

  3. Publish it and you should be good to go.

You can also achieve this by using Gintas K solution with out having to do a workflow.

  • Hi Gintas, what I really want is to send an e-mail, every time a calendar event is created to every sharepoint community member rather than sending to everyone. Thank you by reply! Commented Jul 22, 2016 at 18:19
  • What do you mean by sharepoint community members? Everyone is pointing to every SP User on that site collection. Otherwise, create a SP Group and add all the people there, then specify the alert to send emails to that group :)
