Need default reminder option for "None"
Settings > Calendar > Events / Invitations > Default Reminders: "Never" should be a choice in the drop down.

Why is there an option to turn this off in Outlook app but not via the web app? Very annoying! Or at least put the option on the quick creation screen.
Not just for "None", also an option for "During the event". An option to choose whatever default settings you want would increase user friendliness if you are creating events very often with similar settings.
Also I would like to have an option to choose "Whole day" as an option for events.

I muted Outlook because of this superbly annoying deficiency

This is especially annoying for All Day events. Whether it was created myself, or from an invite. Let me choose the default reminder/alert settings to apply to both self-created events, and accepted event invites.

Agreed, it's a huge waste of time to change it manually every time on the web app. Also as others suggested, calendar-based defaults would be a big plus too.

Absolutely, would save a lot of clicking and unwanted reminders. Does not make sense not to have it as an option.
Rick Anderson commented
Good idea, but it should be a per-calendar setting. It will be a useless feature if it applies to all calendars.

I disabled [Calendar] and [Tasks] in Outlook Web App policy, but the icon on the bottom left of Outlook on the Web does not disappear.
If you click [Task] from the Office 365 Home icon, the task will not be displayed.
But it does appear in Outlook on the Web. It is troublesome to be displayed.
Outlook Web Appポリシーにて[予定表]と[タスク]を無効化したが、Outlook on the Web の左下のアイコンが非表示にならないです。
Office 365 ホームのアイコンからは[タスク]をクリックすると、タスクが表示されません。
しかし、Outlook on the Webでは表示されます。表示されるのは困ります。
Yes please give this "never" option. I don't want reminders as a default and it's such a waste of time to always have to turn off for every event I have
no alert on calendar event
Emily Weiser commented
Yes, *by calendar*, not just the global default that applies to all of my calendars!
Let me get rid of all the bloat icons in the upper right beside the user picture. It's wasting screen space & distracting. I want to be able to remove reminders about events from the upper right also. Give users freedom. You might learn what people want better than throwing things at them & asking later.
all-day events used to default to "no reminder". Bring this back! or at least let us set it that way.
Add back in one day reminder rather than 2 hours being the longest option PLEASE
I don't want reminders by default. It's frustrating to change the details of every appointment manually. Thanks :)

I cannot find my calendars--I wish I could hover over the title the new outlook gave my calendars and see which email is affiliated with them.
I would like to have an email reminder automatically set up as default for every new event in my calendar. I can do this in Google Cal but not in Outlook, in Outlook I need to manually configure it per event or per event series. Could you therefore please update the "default reminder" setting to also support automatic email reminders X hours before event?
Elizabeth Troxell commented
Yes please! I rarely (if never) need the reminder feature so every time I have to put in an event I have to switch it manually, hate it!

Why do I have to have a reminder set as default for all new calendar items?
