I have Meetings showing on my Teams calendar that were created in Outlook. They may have "5 minute before" reminders set on them (or some have 10, 15, etc).

  • If I have the Outlook client open on my computer...
    • Outlook will display those scheduled Reminders that meetings are starting soon.
  • If I have Outlook closed on my computer...
    • Outlook doesn't display those alerts
    • Teams doesn't display those alerts

So my question is, if I have a Meeting that's showing on my Teams calendar, and it had a reminder set on it in Outlook, should Teams also display the reminder alert notifying me that a meeting is starting soon? As it is, if I happen to have Outlook closed, then I simply don't get the meeting reminder alert at all, causing me to miss or be late for meetings.

Unfortunately it’s totally outlook based for now! They are indeed working on this! I’d recommend using uservoice to upvote it further:

You can use power automate to get notifications also! Found an example here:
