Request: reminder time according to Outlook

Feb 7, 2013 at 3:06 PM
I'm very happy with the OutlookGoogleSync in general, but I'm constantly a little bit irritated how the sync handles the reminders.

In Outlook, you can choose from various different reminder times, such as "no reminder", "5 minutes before", "1 hour before", etc. However, OutlookGoogleSync always sets the reminder to google calendar to 10 minutes before the event, regardless of what has been chosen in Outlook.

Since google calendar supports setting the exact time for the reminder, would it be possible to sync this value from Outlook to google calendar in some future version of the OutlookGoogleSync?

Thank you!

The new version 1.0.8. now supports outlook reminders. They are created in Google as "popup" reminders.

Awesome! After a quick testing, seems to work perfectly :)

Now that I have used this new feature more, I noticed that if there is no reminder in Outlook (i.e. the reminder time is "none"), then the OutlookGoogleSync creates a reminder for 10 minutes before the event.
If possible, no reminder at all would be preferred, identical to the Outlook.
