is it possible to change the Event reminder default time from 15 minutes when creating meetings through the teams Calendar?  I changed my Outlook calendar reminders to 30 minutes years ago, so  Teams apparently does not use the Outlook calendar's reminder time.  I also checked Office 365 settings just in case, but didn't see the option there.

Yes this can be, but it is related to the meeting invites and not an outlook setting.

You can open an appointment (via the outlook app on iPhone for example) and change the “alert” to a value you want to use.

Let me know if this answers your question.

Kind regards and stay healthy,

@Mitchell BakkerWhat I need is to change the 15minute reminder to 5minutes when scheduling MS Teams meetings via the MS Team App.

Is this possible?

Sorry for the late reply, but this is possible but not via the teams app. I always use the outlook app and open the meeting from there. Here you can change the reminder from 15min to 5min.

What I think is being missed is the fact that Outlook preferences (where you can pick a standard reminder time) is not currently used by Teams.  I get no reminders for meetings scheduled as a teams meeting (from the Outlook Teams Meeting hyper link or from within the Teams desktop app either.
