Hi everybody,
Wondering if anyone came across the same below issues and could help with solutions.

Have the latest iCloud add-in for Outlook 2013 64bit. Everything works perfect except 2 things:

1) When creating a new Calendar Appointment in Outlook the default Reminder time is set to None (which overrides the setting in Outlook options where it is set to 15min). Does anyone know how to fix it?
(Creating a customized IPM form in Outlook for posting new items to iCloud Calendar does not help - iCloud Calendar refuses to use it).

2) All Calendar reminders for iCloud Calendar events comes in the separate Reminders window (not in the one where all other Outlook Calendar reminders appear) - for me this is kind of weird but still bearable. The issue is that if you close this second reminders windows there is no way to invoke it again.
Does anyone know if there is a way to i.e. have some macro, etc and, say, put a button next to native Outlook Reminders Window on the ribbon which will show that second Reminder Window for iCloud again?

Thanks a lot!
Alan.

Thanks! I think right-clicking would seem to work for me for a while as a walk-around for the 1st issue until it is fixed)

As for the second one, does anyone have any ideas if it is possible to proactively invoke that iCloud Reminders Window (without creating dummy artificial overdue events:) ?

Yep, seen that one.
I have iCloud Add-in 3.1 (just downloaded one month ago) and it seems it again has two separate reminder windows like in the v.1.0

It appears there is a newer 4.0 version available now. Downloading and will test.
Thanks!

...same issue in v4.0: two separate Reminder Windows for iCloud and other Outlook reminders.
(nor fixed the other issue with the default reminder time)
