Google Calendar allows you several different options for event reminders. Here’s how to customize your notifications settings:

  1. In the calendar list on the left, click the down-arrow button next to the appropriate calendar, then choose Reminders and notifications.
  2. In the Event reminder section, select the reminder method (Pop-up, email,) from the drop-down menu and enter the corresponding reminder time. If you’d like to add additional default reminders, simply click Add a reminder.
  3. You can also choose to be notified of specific activates on the calendar by selecting the appropriate option in the Choose how you would like to be notified section.
  4. If you’d like to receive notifications by text message, look at the bottom of that page a choose Set up your mobile phone to receive notifications.
  5. Click Save.
