Windows 7: Hotmail Calendar in WLM

Hotmail Calendar in WLM

Hi Folks,
I have tried every setting to get 'Reminders' sent in email using my Hotmail account in WLM, and failed. I sign-in to WLM using that account.

Have you seen this: https://bay04.calendar.live.com/cale...aspx?mkt=en-US
"You are using Hotmail Calendar
Switch to your original calendar
Your events won't be transferred from Hotmail Calendar to your original calendar. However, if you choose to come back to here your events will be waiting for you."

Hi roncerr, both your links take me to the same page and, as far as I know all details are correct.

I noticed you said the problem was "using my Hotmail account in WLM". I assume you have no problem getting the email sent and received when you set the Event up on the Hotmail website using your browser. At least that's what I noticed: It won't happen when set up using the WLM calendar but does using the Hotmail website. Maybe we need to make sure the calendar is synced after setting the event on WLM.

[Yes that did it. In WLM 2009, after setting up the event in the calendar I used Tools/"Sync all calendars" (while still in the calendar pane) and closed WLM.]

Hi roncerr, thanks for your assistance and have got it to work although i'm not sure of it's time settings. I will make images to try to explain it clearly. Back soon.

First, I accessed the Hotmail calendar directly, and set the options how I wanted, with reminders sent to my Gmail address, see PDF. Hotmail Calendar - Options.pdf

I then set a test in Hotmail.

This is what happens in WLM

The times as well as the advance notice are also different. I wonder if is has something to do with the title being "New Event" i.e. letting you set up a new event or change it rather than simply viewing your initially set up event.

In normal circumstances, I just write a short message i.e. Doctor @ 1400hrs in the box on the day of my appointment then leave it.
I am currently testing the exact same time frame in Gmail & Hotmail calendars. I know Gmail will inform me 12 hours before the event. Will see what happens at 1100hrs as the event was set for 2300hrs today.

Perhaps I'm beginning to see the problem: WLM allows you to set up an advance notice duration before the event, called a "reminder" but there is only one selection possible. Hotmail Events display and allow you to set two advance reminders (e.g. an email address and mobile calendar) which can be different. WLM sets only one but leaves the other set for the Hotmail default when viewed in Hotmail for the user's (green) calendar. So the question is will the email be sent at the only time specified in WLM or at the default email time displayed in Hotmail. In the tests I did yesterday, after syncing the calendar in WLM, the email notice came at the intended WLM time but I don't remember checking to see what Hotmail said it was set for. I guess we'll both be doing further tests.

Take another look at my last image in post #06, it shows as 15 minutes, and that was how it was set for my last test as in this post's image.
