Hey all, 

This is my first time posting here because this issue is driving me insane.

I create quite a few calendar events a day and every time I make a new one, it defaults to making it an all-day event with a "15 minutes before" notification.

I don't ever want to receive notifications and I have literally never in three years made an all-day event. Is there any way to turn off these defaults/change the defaults? I know it's a small matter, but when you make 10-15 events a day, it just builds up and becomes a niggling nuisance. 

 

Thanks.

If you click at the top it will give you a daily appointment.

If you click in the "hours" section it will give you a 30 minute appointment - or whatever you have set as the default meeting duration.

For Outlook Online, I am not sure if you can turn off the default reminders.  You can change them but there isn't a "none" option that I am aware of.

If you are using the Outlook app, it does appear you can turn off the default reminders.

Hi @Benuathanasia, have a look at this.
