Not sure if you received my response but here it is:

 

Unfortunately we don't have any product that modifies the calendar. Please note that the calendar already displays the regarding field. It is just that the height of the rectangle of each activity is conditioned by the duration of the activity. One solution to your problem therefore might be to change the calendar increments under Options>Preferences>Calendar & Activities>Calendar Preferences. If you change it to 10 minutes for instance, the rectangle might be high enough to see what you're trying to see. This would work for the weekly and daily calendars only. Just a thought…

I didn't see an incoming email from you Gilles, so I'm grateful that you posted your response on this forum.  Thank you!

 

I'm surprised that this hasn't come up with other users who depend on their calendars.  I may be calling somebody that I'll only contact once. I want the reminder on my calendar, but I don't to always take the time to set the person/entity up as a contact.

 

I'm going to play around with the calendar settings as you suggested and hopefully, I can come up with a work-around.
