Multiple Calendar Reminders
I am looking at Office 365 as a viable alternative to Google Apps. One of the most useful features of Google Calendar is that I can have multiple reminders specified. So for instance my default is to receive a reminder 2 weeks ahead, 1 week ahead, 2 days ahead and 2 hours ahead.
I can only see an option for one reminder on the Office 365 calendar and can't see how to add more. This is a serious omission. A basic calendar requirement in my opinion.
We’re looking at whether we can support this. Will update you soon!

Yes, Desperately need multiple reminders.
I was using outlook.com online with Office 365 with my organization earlier this year, and reminders from my calendar would show up where I would read my email, and stay in the notifications tab until I dismissed them. I liked to push "snooze" for the ones I would deal with later, and keep some up as reminders of tasks I need to get to.
However, within the past month an update of some kind was made to Outlook, and now those reminders don't stay in the tab. They show up as a little box on the side, but don't have the "snooze" option. In any case, there are no lists of tasks I need to get to that stay in the notifications tab like they used to. I was hoping to continue that, but even when I changed organizations this month, still using outlook.com online with Office 365, they don't stay in the notifications tab. Is there anything I can do to get that back?
it would be great to have more than one reminder , i'm having too many 50's moments and forgetting the meeting even i i had been reminded 30 minutes previously!!, and by the way so many other people are late , i guess i am not the only one
Hability to make more than 1 reminder in calendar and two sort of reminders : notification or e-mail.
Where are we up to on this. Our team would like to schedule multiple reminders for one specific client ie: 45 days/30 days/14 days/7 days/1 day - without having to make 5 entries for each client!
Google Calendar can do this. I need multiple reminders at different intervals. I would rather use Google Calendar if this option is not supported in Outlook!
I couldn't agree more with this request! Multiple reminders and custom reminders (15 hours or 44 minutes, for example) are necessary. The lack of those two things is what's keeping me from switching from Google Calendar and jumping into a paid Office 365 subscription.
Ditto to that! Multiple Reminders is very useful when you have a very busy calendar!
ok Outlook moderator, can MS hurry it up please. This is a ridiculous oversight and a most basic function, which renders the calendar pretty useless for my purposes.
This absolutely needs to be improved. I'm a busy man, I can get a reminder 15 mins out and get pulled into something that makes me forget in those 15 mins. I need multiple reminders to protect against missing meetings. This really cannot be that difficult to achieve.

Please, please, please, create the ability to select more than one reminder on calendar invitations.
I suggest you refer to past version which you deleted as part of the so called upgrade. Unbelievable!!!

What about longer than 1 week notice too?

definitely need multiple reminders - to have a workload reminder appear then get snoozed by 15 min when new priority has arisen without being able to snooze for a day or week is a pain. On the PC it worked well - on 365 online is pathetic

Mail reminder is NOT ENOUGH.
we need multiple reminders as a notification from the outlook/calendar app!!!!
The fact is Microsoft is not developing Office 365 in the right way.
The missing of such a BASIC feature is a surpassingly serious flaw in the cloud offer from Microsoft.
If they won't fix this ASAP i will move to a different service provider.
Jumping in with everyone else here. Unfortunately, corporate moved to this platform. As others have said, there is potential to miss meetings. Please bring this feature back in the next update.
I can't scroll past 2 hours to snooze (would like to snooze .5 day or 1 day, or 1 week, etc.) and the snooze drop down shows up behind the reminder window, so when there are multiple reminders, I can't see the top snooze choices either.

Amen. This is an obvious short coming. Even if there is a way to do this, the fact that it is so obscure is whack. The Google calendar UI is intuitive and functional. The MS UI is anything but intuitive.
I'm a big fan of multiple reminders. For events in the distance future I typically set three reminders. One to finalize travel arrangements 2-3 months out. A second 2-3 weeks out to confirm arrangements are set and there are no event modifications, then one day before for final preparations. I'm trying to move from G-Suite calendar to fully office 365, but this is a deal-breaker until resolved. It's to easy to accidently dismiss a reminder in the flurry of the day and then completely miss the event. I consider it like a disaster recovery plan. You don't go without them in business, and my calendar is my personal business process.

I need an option to ring at 15min, 10min, 5 min, and 0 min... I am missing half of my meetings since corporate changed me to outlook...
