Give the ability to snooze calendar alerts
I really need the option of snoozing/postponing calendar events. i guess another workaround would be to sync with device calendar.

the tiny notification that pops-up has no choice to snooze the reminder, which means it only has one horrible reminder. Add an option to snooze it for 5 minutes so that the reminder repeats until cleared.
I just tried the swipe right to get to the snooze options. All it did was make the notification go away; i.e., the snooze options did NOT appear. I'm using a Samsung Galaxy Note 10+.
Options should appear are,snooze and dismiss.
Outlook app on Android provides a snooze function. When the calendar event pops up, wipe it to the right. Click on the watch symbol that appears on the left and select your desired snooze time between 15 minutes and 2 hours.
Outlook app on Android needs to have snooze function.

Indeed, when a Calendar reminder appears, having a snooze until 5 minutes option or snooze for 15 minutes would be ideal. Since it's a persistent notifications, watch notifications aren't terribly useful since they happen with the reminder, never close to the appointment time.

I'm able to snooze email for 1 evening, or for a weekend, or even for during work hours, but cannot set no notifications OUTSIDE work hours

the snooze option should be available directly from the notification screen so it can be snoozed without opening outlook, if you open outlook it should give you an opportunity to snooze, etc. right now if i open outlook on the phone (by clicking an email notification) it clear all the event notifications too!

I found that current Android Outlook allows snooze, but the dialog box appears only for a few seconds. Sometimes I hear the notification sound, open the phone, and see the notification on the top with snooze option, but before I was able to hit snooze, the graphic notification disappears.
It needs to be a dialog box that stays there until processed.

Need to have a pop-up dialog to snooze an event notification. Our default event notification is 15 mins prior. when I am busy working on something, 15 mins slips by easily. Without a notification at the meeting time, I often miss my meeting. With snooze, I set the snooze at 15 mins, so the phone will give another notification exactly at the meeting time.
Another choice is always give a notification at the meeting time no matter the event setup. If the event is set at notification 15 mins prior, do that, and give another notification exactly at the meeting time.

I have another idea for a work around that might work using either tasker or IFTTT to set a rule which would see the notification set an alarm 5 minutes later with the same tone that would then snooze up to 3 time 5 minutes apart wouldn't be the exact notification but you could leave that in plac for the simple click details and get the snooze reminders pretty sure one of these app can handle what I need, just got to work out the exact details, will try to work this our over the next few days depending on free time. If anyone is interested let me know and I'll post the answer when i've managed it (Missing Touchdown thanks symantec)

3 1/2 year and over a thousand votes down the road and Microsoft still doesn't see this as a need. This despite it being a core component of Outlook itself since the desktop client was first introduced. Congrats on being the ONLY major player that doesn't have the option to snooze. I think that's what the engineers are doing, snoozing.

I used to use an excellent app called calendar snooze,but this doesn't integrate with outlook 🙄. I used to use my calendar to manage my daily tasks and because I could snooze the alerts, this worked perfectly. Auto snooze for calendar alerts is absolutely necessary.

a simple way to snooze or dismiss calendar notifications is needed.
Todd, unfortunately it wasn't one-time setup, so I can't say for sure what I did to make it working.
These are approximate steps I made over time:
1) Installed Outlook and found out that there are no Snoose functionality which was important for me.
2) Installed Calendar Notifications and realized that Outlook did not share events with system calendar, so they didn't work together.
3) Configured Gmail as email and calendar app (it worked with Calendar Notifications well enough). Outlook was deleted.
4) Recently I decided to give Outlook another chance (Gmail interface is still very confusing to me when looking at a long email thread).
5) Outlook was installed in parallel with working Gmail (So I received each email and event notification twice)
6) I've disabled account synchronization in Gmail (i can't delete it, since it's system app) and realized, that Calendar Notification still receives new events, while Outlook is used as email and Calendar app.
So, it's pretty close to what I need.
I think now that it was Gmail which did the trick of adding accounts to the system calendar. While still not sure how they are updated since sync is disabled.

Mike, if you can tell me how to use a third party snooze app to work with Outlook, please let me know. I installed the app you suggested and it only recognizes the system Calendar app, and I can't find a way to either a) get Outlook events to show in the system Calendar app or b) get the app you suggested (Calendar Notifications) to "see" Outlook calendars in the settings.
What am I doing wrong?
