Change the default reminder in outlook for all day events

when I create a new all day event , it defaults to 18 hours.  Is there a way to change this so it will default to 5 minutes every time?

Hey akita29!

 This might not be the optimal forum for this question...
 but,...

 That seems to be rather a conflict in terms,... a 5 minute all day event???
 I believe the "all day event" definition would be fixed in Outlook as matching the business day established in Outlook.
 You'll notice that you can "define" the normal workday and which days of the week are business days.

 I don't know that you will want to adjust the business day down to just 5 minutes.

humm... not sure about the forum thing, if you have any suggestions as to the correct forum, it would be helpful.  The deal is that if you schedule an all day appointment that starts at 8am (default day is 8 to 5), i would like to get a reminder 5 minutes prior to 8am 7:55am.  The default is 18 hours and i can not change that..

Akita29,

Open outlook

Go to tools --> options

Under preferences tab you should see calendar
In that use the dropdown menu and set default reminder as 5 mins

The does not effect the all day events.  What that does is change the default on timed events not all day events.  So the goal is make an all day event and have it default to 5 minutes.  We are lazy and can not change it the old fashion way

I seem to be missing the "why" in what you are trying to accomplish. Why not just use a 5 minute event???

I share the sentiment. However, I have a somewhat demanding client that feels modifying the reminder time after creating the event is too much of an effort.  Apparently this changed from Outlook 2000 going to Outlook 2002-3, so it wasn't an issue before he upgraded.

jadedata,

I got her point. She says when she enables" all day event" , it is going to default as 18 hrs ..

As she said she doesnot want to manually go and enable reminder and change it to 5 mins ..

As far as I can tell you can only set the default reminder as one value.  You would have to write a macro that triggers on the creation of a new "All day" event and set the reminder with VBA.  That's as close as I can get at the moment, until I find the objects and command needed to pull that off.
