is there a way to disable contact's birthday event with Einstein Activity Capture?
Every day, I get a lot of event notifications in Outlook because of contact's birthdays.

Looks like the outlook is creating calendar birthday events automatically when new contact records are created in Outlook and because you set up Einstein Activity Capture, those events are syncing to Salesforce.
This is basic functionality of Outlook that if you create a new contact record and you fill out the birthday field, it will automatically create a calendar event for the birthday of that newly added contact. And because you’re using Einstein if your sync direction is "Office 365 to Salesforce", all events created from Outlook will definitely sync to your Salesforce calendar.
To prevent this from happening, the best thing to do is to set your event sync direction to “Salesforce to Office 365” so that whenever a birthday event will be automatically created in Outlook, it won’t sync to Salesforce.
