Office 365 Outlook Appointments default no location RRS feed

  • Question

  • I have many appointments with no location.  I don't want that box to pop up asking if I really want to send invite without location. 

    I want to change all appointments to default to (none) in the location line.  I see directions to change this in previous editions but can't see for 365.

  • Hi LisaHeath,

    Do you mean sending meeting invitations? In this case, Outlook will remind you to add a location. For appointments, when tested here, I can save the appointments without a window popping up for location.

    As far as I know, there is no built-in option in Outlook to disable this reminder.

    As a workaround, we could create a new form and then set a default value for Location. Please check the steps to see if it works for you.

    1. Enable the Developer tab in Outlook.

    Go to File > Options > Customize Ribbon. Choose Developer from the list and then click Add.


    2. Click Developer > Design a Form.

    3. Select Appointment and then type None or something else you like in Location.


    4. Click Publish Form.

    5. Type a name and then click Publish.


    6. Close the form window, and click Yes to save if prompted.

    7. Right click your calendar folder and choose Properties.


    8. Set the custom form for this folder.


    Hope this is helpful to you.

    Regards,

    Perry
