Baumgartner, 21, of Edmonton, is charged with three counts of first-degree murder, one count of attempted murder and four counts of robbery with a firearm in a deadly heist at the University of Alberta's HUB Mall.
Three armoured car company co-workers were shot to death and one was wounded during the June 15 bloodbath.
Baumgartner did not have to appear because his lawyer has filed a designation to act on his behalf.
It is likely he won't appear Aug. 16.
Baumgartner was one of five G4S Cash Solutions security guards exchanging funds at a bank machine inside the Hub Mall shortly after midnight.
At some point during the job, guards Michelle Shegelski, 26, Brian Ilesic, 35, and Eddie Rejano, 39, were shot and killed, and guard Matthew Schuman was wounded. He remains in critical condition in hospital.
A G4S armoured car, which police believe was the initial getaway vehicle, was later discovered empty near a southeast Edmonton G4S facility.
A Canada-wide warrant for Baumgartner was issued and he led police agencies across the province on a 36-hour manhunt that ended June 16 when he was caught at the Lynden, Wash., border crossing, southwest of Abbotsford, BC
He was carrying more than $330,000 in Canadian currency and his driver's licence, but no passport.
