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.
