How do I customize my calendar notification settings?
Google Calendar allows you several different options for event reminders. Here’s how to customize your notifications settings:
- In the calendar list on the left, click the down-arrow button next to the appropriate calendar, then choose Reminders and notifications.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
- Click Save.
