When creating a new event in Jolla for Google calendar the reminder/alarm is overwritten by the default reminder set on Google calendar settings. This happens always on first sync after adding an event.

How to reproduce

  1. Set up two-way sync for your Google calendar
  2. Go the the google calendar website and set you're default reminder to 15 minutes.
  3. Add an event to the calendar on Jolla without a reminder
  4. Wait for a sync.
  5. The event now has a reminder set for 15 minutes. If you're default in Google is no remidner then the reminder on Jolla is removed.

Very nasty for all day events because then the reminder is set for 23:45 for example. Or when the default is no reminder and the reminder is removed.

Usually the reminder sticks when re-added after the first sync.
