Outlook Calendar defaults

Posted on 2007-10-05

I recently bought a new PC with Windows Vista Business and decided to install the latest version of Microsoft Office 2007.  My problem is with Outlook in particular (ver. 12.0.6023.5000); for some reason every time I add a new appointment it automatically adds a 15 minute reminder.  I've hunted everywhere to find the setting to turn this off and I can't, anyone have any ideas.  Also on a slightly different issue and not as annoying, I use and have installed the Outlook integration software so now every time I add a new appointment in Outlook it automatically assigns it to the new category, anyone have any ideas how to get to rid of this too?

    Accepted Solution

     Go to tools > options
    In the preferences tab under calendar it gives you the option to turn off this default reminder (check box).
    Will see what I can find out about SalesForce integration.

    From what I've been reading, doesn't Salesforce require this categorisation in order to synchronise properly?

    I don't actually want to synchronise my calendar with Salesforce, i just want to be able to add emails into Salesforce.
