Default reminder value from event organizer

MM-6272 0 Reputation points

The event organizer creates event with Reminder set to none and me as the Attendee. It shows in my calendar with reminder based on File > Options > Calendar > Default reminder value (greyed out) The problem is, that I have Default reminder value unchecked - when I create new event the default reminder is set to none, works as expected. When I am as attendee, I also need reminder set to none instead of using that greyed out value or use reminder value from the organizer. Outlook build 17231.20194 Exchange 2016 on-prem CU 23

    Hi @MM-6272 ,

    In Outlook, the reminder settings for an event are typically determined by the event organizer. If the organizer sets a reminder, it will apply to all attendees. However, it seems you want to override this setting and have no reminder for events where you are an attendee.

    Unfortunately, Outlook does not provide a built-in feature to override the reminder settings for individual attendees. However, you can manually change the reminder for each event you are invited to. To do this, open the event in your calendar and set the reminder to ‘None’. Please note that this has to be done for each individual event.
