Option to set default reminder time for all day events in calendar
Allow a default reminder time for all Events in Calendar irrespective of whether they are of fixed duration or all day events which was possible in previous versions of Outlook.

Can you clarify: I organize a meeting and set reminder time for the meeting. Can I set that reminder time for participants also or is it only reminder time for me? Do participants see their own default reminder times or that reminder time that I set?

I would like to create a monthly reminder in my email.

Change the default reminder time for all-day events (18 hours is 0600 the previous day!). 12 hours would be more sensible, or provide a user setting for the default.

I would like to request an enhancement to Microsoft Outlook. For individuals not on Outlook that I send meeting appointments to, it would be nice to have a built-in feature that would allow me to pre-schedule an email reminder to meeting attendees that would go out the day of the meeting (as opposed to a meeting notification that not everyone may get if they aren't on Outlook or don't accept the appt). As it stands now, I have to do double work in creating the meeting appointment AND creating/scheduling an email reminder for attendees.

Reading online, this has been a complaint for YEARS. I can change the default on calendar items I make for specific times, but I can't change the default reminder time (which I'd like to be NONE) on all day events. Give us the option to change both if we wish.
This should totally be configurable as a user preference, just as the non-all-day events are.
Default is currently 18 hours prior to midnight for an all-day event beginning at 12:00 a.m. Thus, reminder is 6:00 a.m. the day prior to the all-day event. Besides providing an option to alter the default for all-day events, I'd like my reminder to come within the day of my all-day event, i.e., after midnight on the event day. So, how plus allowing me to prefix a reminder time with a plus sign (+). That way "+8 hours" would remind me at 8:00 a.m. on day of the event.
I think this should be approached differently, but like the general idea. I think that default reminders should only apply to non all-day events. Then they can set all-day-events' reminders seperately. We get complaints about my vacation calendar entries causing people reminders in the middle of the night (even when we set it to Reminder: None) but it's because of THEIR default reminder options. A 15 min reminder (many of their defaults) is not appropriate, ever, for an all-day-event.

If you type on the calendar day, it doesn't know if it's an event or an appointment, so the default is None. Formerly it defaulted to all-day event, with a default reminder time of 18 hrs, which was acceptable. But it would be better if a default reminder could be changed for events as well as appointments. If you type on the calendar day, it should default to all-day event, because clearly the user doesn't care about entering a lot of details.

Do not override an incoming meeting reminder if it is set to "None"
Outlook will overwrite all incoming reminders to the Default that you selected in the preferences menu. This includes meetings with the reminder set to "none". This is impacting when the event is an All-Day event and the reminder goes off at 11:55pm. Please make a more granular setting for the reminder overwrite function.
This was an option in Exchange 2010 -- http://www.slipstick.com/exchange/meeting-reminders-are-set-for-the-recipient/

My request doesn't apply to all-day requests, but rather requests generated in Outlook from opening ICS files into an IMAP-synced account.

The Outlook Calendar settings provides the option the set a Default Reminder (e.g., 15min) for any newly created Calendar items. I would like this to work for IMAP Accounts (e.g., GMail), where currently, the Default Reminder is always set to None. The Default Reminder should be pulled from the Calendar settings, even for IMAP Accounts.

There needs to be an option to specify the default reminder for all-day appointments. Currently it seems to be fixed at 18 hours before which means unwanted reminders keep popping up if I don't remember to turn off reminders every time I enter an all-day event. Personally, reminders generally seem unnecessary before all-day events because I don't need a prompt to leave in time to get to the appointment like I do with appointments at a specific time.
