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!
Just a few suggestions:
- Allow for multiple reminders for calendar events. Google calendar allows this but outlook does not.
- Option to delete people's birthdays that show up on the calendar - Not sure why some birthdays do not have the option to delete the event.
Loving the dark mode!

The main thing keeping me from using the beta (which I love using for the dark theme and still clean look) is the "more options" menu available in the default calendar setting. I like having a whole screen that I can use to edit everything all at once, add notes, etc.
I'd also like to have an option to add more than one reminder for each type (email & notification). I usually have to drive an hour to get to events I attend, so my reminders are set for an hour or more before the event. However, I'd also like to be notified 15 minutes or so prior to the start of the event so that I know better where I need to be when. Currently the only way to set multiple reminders is one email and one notification reminder.

I started trying the beta. I am very concerned that calendar events in the beta lacks ability to send multiple reminders and email reminders. These are essential to me. Also tailoring repeat events is also very limited. Please put them back.
Please add functionality to set multiple reminders for a calendar event.

There was no option to set multiple reminder (email, phone) to events in the new Beta version. I really liked that feature. :(
No way show reminder is completed without deleting, to add more than one additional reminder to the reminder (date/day) wise.
Calendar: I like the display for the Beta Caleenday. I don't like the fact that I can't add a second or third reminder. I also cannot add notes to that calendar. I hope these will be provided in the future
We need to continue to have an option for MORE THAN ONE email reminder for an event!

There does not appear to be an option to create multiple reminders for a calendar event. I like to remind myself a week before a birthday and then again at 3 days before and 2 days before - I have a decent memory it is just SHORT.
