Outlook and meeting reminders

I do not like the fact that the person sending a meeting request is the one deciding how long before the meeting a reminder would be set.

Since I don’t like the popup on my phone, I’m not using reminders.

So to get rid of incoming reminders I wrote a small script.

Press ALT+F11 and paste this code:

Sub snwRemoveMeetingReminder(Item As Outlook.MeetingItem)
    If TypeOf Item Is Outlook.MeetingItem Then
        Item.ReminderSet = False
        Item.Save
        
        Set Appt = Item.GetAssociatedAppointment(True)
        If Not Appt Is Nothing Then
            Appt.ReminderSet = False
            Appt.Save
        End If
    End If
End Sub

Then add the the script to incoming meeting requests.

Now the script will remove reminders on every incoming meeting request… It’s a client side rule, so you need to have Outlook running to get it to work.
