Multiple Calendar Alerts
Being able to set up multiple "alerts" for a event/appt, etc. instead of just one on the calendar
MS Have to take feedback from their users seriously! Atleast after 1010 votes and requests
Do you think it would be possible to have a second reminder option for events in calendar? For example one reminder a day before the event and a second reminder two hours before?
Thank you in advance
We need to have the ability to have more than 1 alert per event. Instead of, for example, an hour before event, we need to be able to set multiple alerts like 1 day before and 1 hour before. Google calendar is like that. For you guys, a simple change......Jeff
It would be great to have at least two reminder options for calendar events. For example, one an hour before the event and a notification at the time of the event.
Similar to iOS, it would be helpful if I could add multiple notifications for a single event i.e. 1 hour before and 1 day before not just either or

Very basic function please add
I was recently forced into using MS Outlook iOS on my iPhone when my employer discontinued support for legacy email protocols. One of the downsides I noticed right away is that the OL calendar does not allow for long term alerts as 2 weeks is the maximum reminder for calendar events.
This was also a downfall of the native iOS mail client however I found another calendar program that allowed me to to select any number of days for alerts.
My only work around now is to create 2 calendar events, one for the required reminder and one one for the actual event.
Being able to set any number of days for the alert would be a very useful function to add to the OL calendar. In fact if more than one reminder could be added that would be even better.

Have the ability to make more than one alarm for appointments on the calendar
I'd like to see 1/2 day (12 hours) reminders in the calendar. Often if I have an early meeting or flight I'll set a reminder that alerts me the night before.

Multiple calendar reminder options eg. 1 hour prior, AND 15 min prior AND 5 min prior
the calendar should be set multiple alert（Now，it only one alert）
This is a GREAT feature of the iOS calendar. Even after snoozing a meeting or event, I get a reminder one minute before the event is to begin. This is very important for Skype meetings, conference calls, etc., both as a reminder and as a shortcut link to connect to the call.

Please add. I need to know what is coming AND when I should jump to my next meeting. That is two notifications. 15 min before and 5 min before.

Sometimes I like to be reminded of an event on calendar more than once. This is especially happy when I’m busy and my mind is elsewhere.
I second many of these comments, the options available in Outlook are much more flexible and useful. There’s no granularity and setting the times and the canned settings are not useful at all. 9 AM the same day as the all day event is too late. 9 AM the prior day is too early.
We definitely need multiple alerts it’s easy to miss something.
Third-party programs can set Multiple + Custom alerts and still use the events on my exchange server I’m not sure why Microsoft can’t figure this out.
I don’t understand why multiple reminders isn’t available
or why all day event reminder gives you such limited choices. I don’t want it the day before, but 9:00 AM on the day of the event is too late.
Maybe I want it the night before or early that morning. Multiple reminders would help a lot here as well
It would be very nice to have the option of setting multiple alerts for calendar events.
