Hi Yoshihiro,

 

It seems that we are currently not able to configure Reminder as “none-reminder” using flow.

 

You could consider to submit an idea at Flow Ideas Forum about “none-reminder” issue:

I will also collect and report this from my side.

Hi Yoshihiro,

 

Do you want to create an event without Reminder? Have you tried to set the Reminder value to ‘0’?

 

An integer value is asked in the Reminder field. So when you enter a None-Integer value in this field, the value would be invalid.

 

I created a flow to create a none-reminder event in Office 365 Calendar. I configured the Reminder value to “0”, then when I run the flow, an event without Reminder created. Please see the screenshot as below:


1.I set the value of Reminder field to “0”.

2.The flow run succeeded.

3.The event is created in Calendar without Reminder.

If I understand you correctly, please try if my step works for you.

Hi, @v-yamao-msft

 

Thank you for your quick reply.

 

My Check result is that Reminder 0 is 0 minutes reminder, this is not 'none-reminder'.

 

I want to set none-reminder instead of 0 minutes reminder.

For everybody finding this post and feeling deflated with the non-solution, note that you can achieve a "None" in the reminder field by using -1 as the value in the flow.

When I use -1, the Outlook item becomes unstable and has errors. So, I don't think this is a supported situation.

-1 still kicks a reminder and causes error as indicated.

Using "-1" is not a valid solution and causes errors in certain outlook versions. In Google calendar, it simply pings the alert 1 minute after the meeting has begun. Also an invalid solution.

As an ugly hack in the mean time, you can set the reminder value to 2628000, which is 5 years. Since it's most likely in the past, it shouldn't pop up. Also, most calendar software will ignore such a long value and simply revert to "None".
