I've got three calendars set up on my iPhone:

  • Microsoft Exchange
  • outlook.com (Windows Live)
  • icloud

I've got entries in the first two calendars. However, I only get notifications from the Exchange Events as set up into them (like 15 minutes before, and so on). On the other hands, I won't get notifications on outlook.com-Events.

Both calendars are synchronized exactly the same, notifications for calendar at all are set, I can see all the events with different colours in my Calendar App, but I won't get any notice at the outlook.com Events...

Anyone knows what I forgot?

In your Calendars app, press the "Calendars" button on the bottom, and press the (i) that shows up next to each calendar in the list of calendars. Scroll to the bottom of the settings there, and there should be a toggle for Event Alerts. Turn this on for each individual calendar.

  • They are all turned on already... Additionally, if I disable them and leave the menu, they get resetted to "enabled".... Commented May 4, 2016 at 21:36

    @FlorianMüller Maybe you're not setting event alerts when you create an alert for your outlook-live calendar?

    @FlorianMüller If you choose to edit one of the outlook-live calendar events, what does it say in the "Alert" field? And what about for an event in your Exchange calendar?

  • I can set "Notification" on both kinds of events on predefined values such as "2 days before" "5 mins before" and so on.. Commented May 4, 2016 at 21:58
  • @FlorianMüller If you download the Outlook app, does your outlook-live calendar function as expected?
