The accepted answer might still work (for me it didn't, for others it did), Google may have changed the settings menu since then.

An alternative route in case the above doesn't work is the following: first, choose a calendar from the left panel, and click on the three dots to choose "Settings and sharing". Then, under "Event notifications" and "All-day event notifications" you can define your preferred default behavior.

  • Looks like the settings are still accessible through the method in the accepted answer, going through via the "settings and sharing" is a shortcut to get to the same place. – John C Jul 9 at 1:16

  • Hmm, for some reason it doesn't work for me. But I'll edit my answer accordingly. – Johnathan Jul 9 at 20:35
