It makes a lot of sense to adopt this way of setting reminders. If people like setting reminders a certain time before an event, they lose zero capability by punching in the time themselves (e.g. for an event at 5:00 pm, just set your alarm at 3:00 pm if you want it 2 hours before). However, if someone wants to have an all day event with a reminder at 2:00 pm on the day of the event, this is impossible - it can go off at midnight on the day of the event or anytime before the day of the event. It only makes sense to set it up to provide the most functionality, not to limit functionality.
Another option that would help with all day events is to have the default reminder time for "0 minutes before event" go off based on the "start of day" setting instead of midnight. I think it's pretty rare that people actually want to get reminders at midnight the day before the event or task.Chelsea supported this idea ·
