  • Outlook 2007 does not support reminders from vCal files

    Hi all

    I have a simple vCal file that is sent to users for them to add to their calendars. In Outlook 2003 it automatically added a 15 min reminder. But in Outlook 2007 I cannot specify a reminder.

    Here is my vCal file:

    Code:
    BEGIN:VCALENDAR
    PRODID:-//Microsoft Corporation//Outlook 11.0 MIMEDIR//EN
    VERSION:1.0
    BEGIN:VEVENT
    DTSTART:20080619T110000Z
    DTEND:20080619T150000Z
    LOCATION;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE:lecture theatre
    DESCRIPTION;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE: Equipment Booking: Lenovo Laptop for rnm in lecture theatre
    SUMMARY;ENCODING=QUOTED-PRINTABLE: Equipment Booking: Lenovo Laptop for rnm in lecture theatre
    PRIORITY:3
    END:VEVENT
    END:VCALENDAR
    Does anyone know how to do this?

    Thanks

    It is amazing what you find when you have already posted a request for help!!

    Code:
    BEGIN:VALARM
    ACTION:DISPLAY
    DESCRIPTION:REMINDER
    TRIGGER;RELATED=START:-PT00H15M00S
    END:VALARM
    But you cannot have a reminder set for an appointment in the past. When you open an appointment that is set for the past but with a reminder, Outlook 2007 changes the reminder to NONE. Great stuff MS!

    PS: Almost forgot! You need
    Code:
    VERSION:2.0
    before
    Code:
    BEGIN:VCALENDAR
