This is a wrongly phrased string and needs to be corrected. Maybe like, "Set default reminders for the new appointments created/received <sometime> before the appointment time". So it was meant to be this way and has been implemented in the backend's the same way. I would recommend changing the string.

This is different than first and must be implemented in alarm-daemon and with the above string.
