    I'm seeing this being passed from QA to Programming so it is getting worked on now...

    I just checked and the programmer says this is fixed in the current inhouse build. I will make a point to push a new beta soon.

    It will be 2.5.3 or higher available here when it is released: http://www.dejaoffice.com/androidapp/

    Hi,

    Bug seems to be fixed in 2.5.3 beta, but

    "why is not the conventional alarm setting available like 1 day, 12 hours, etc?"

    for appointment series.

    I have just upgraded to 2.5.3

    When I try adding an event I am getting all the normal alarm options.

    You are right for new created appointments. Old series (created before 2.5.3) still show as alarm a specific point in time (2013-09-26 9:00). Strange, but an improvement anyway ...

    For a Timed event, the alarm is an offset of that time; I.e. for an 8am appointment, your choices are 5 mins, 10 mins, 30 mins.

    For an Untimed (or All Day) event; the alarm has to have a date/time. So there is both a date and a time for the alarm.

    I just checked through, and this is working fine for me. I don't know of any code changes to this in recent releases. If you see any exceptions to this rule please report them.

    Ah, that's it. But why? In outlook there's always just a period of time ...

    Outlook has historically always mishandled alarms for all day events.

    Most famously, it rang the alarm for old Pocket PC devices 15 minutes ahead of the appointment time. 11:45 PM. I remember that bug well, as one would remember if your PDA woke you up in the middle of the night on a long weekend.

    In Outlook 2013, they still give an inefficient dropdown with options like 5 minutes, 10 minutes etc; all for a Birthday or Holiday. That's nonsense. An all day event commonly has no associated time, so what does it mean to ring 5 minutes before Labor Day?
