How to Set Default Reminder of 15 Minutes in Thunderbird?

Recently I switched from Outlook to Thunderbird to manager multiple email accounts and events. So far I did not face any issue with Thunderbird. Most of the functionality available in Outlook are also available in Thunderbird so I don’t miss Outlook.

But when I started creating events, I had to manually select Reminder value to “15 minutes before”. This is a default functionality in Outlook so I never had to remember to select.

If I forget to set the reminder value, it will not show a notification.
