If setting automatic notifications in Google Calendar leaves you yearning for more control over your calendar then you will have to set them individually each time you create a new event/appointment. Google Calendar provides users with three types of notifications for calendar entries; Email, SMS (Short Message Service) to your mobile phone, and a Pop-up. All of these notifications/alerts can be configured to appear at a time specified by you. If you are using pop-up alerts and have devices synchronized to your Google Calendar, those alerts should appear in the deviceâ€™s notification system. In the guide below I will show you how to add reminders/notifications/alerts to your calendar entries in Google Calendar.
If you have any comments or questions, please post them below. To add notifications automatically follow these instructions.
1. Click on a calendar entry and click on the Edit event details link.
2. When the Event Details page opens, click on the Add a reminder link in the Options section.
3. Three drop-down boxes will appear above the Add a reminder link. Select the type of reminder (Email, SMS, Pop-up) and set the time interval using the drop-down menus.
4. When you are done, click on the Save button to save the changes.
A. If youâ€™re not satisfied with the reminder, you can always delete it by clicking on the small x to the right of the reminder.
