I have various recurring events I have been invited to on Google Calendar (GSuite). Some of them are not actually meetings or I am not interested in being alerted for them, yet they come preconfigured with some alert. When I edit the event, remove the alert, save, and select to apply the change to this and future events, it seems to work fine. However if I immediately go back into the event the notification is still there like before every time. This doesn't happen for non-recurring events. Removing the alert works if you select to save the changes only for the currently selected events instead of all future events.
Is there a way to remove (or mute) these alerts short of
- disabling all alerts on my calendar,
- editing each one individually until the end of time, or
- asking the creator of the event to remove the alert whenever I'm invited to an event with an alert baked in (I'm assuming that's where the alert is coming from)?
