How to reset oil service notice?

I recently picked up a used 2017 M2. I have service records that indicate the oil was changed last month at the dealership, about 200 miles ago. However, the service reminder on the iDrive screen says that the car is due for an oil change this month.

Is there a way for me to reset the service reminder? Or somehow tell the car that the oil was changed already?

Thanks for any insight.

Yes, you can reset the service reminders using the odometer button. I had done this for the brakes on my previous 228i.

I found a YouTube video that shows this (not mine):

I didn't remember the exact steps from when I did it but based on the video it looks like:
1. Turn on car without starting engine (i.e. press start button without foot on brake)
2. Wait for all dash lights to clear.
3. Press & Hold odometer button until service reminder comes up.
4. Use short presses to scroll through the service reminders until you get to oil change.
5. Use a long press to start a reset.
6. Turn off car.
7. Wait a couple seconds.
8. Start car again (with or without engine), check that the service reminder for oil change doesn't come up.
9. At this point you can also review the service reminders in iDrive.

Thanks for the write up - I think it was more useful than the video!
Just did my first DIY oil change over the weekend and your instructions worked awesome for the service light reset!
