|Setting Default Reminders||Setting Reminders on Specific Events|
Reminders help you remember an event by alerting you ahead of time. In Yahoo! Calendar, you can have up to two reminders sent to you through email, an instant message, a text message to your mobile device, or all three. You can set default reminders to use for all new events. You can always change the defaults for specific events.
While viewing your calendar, select Calendar Options from the Options menu at the top of the page.
Tip: If you don’t see Calendar Options on the Options menu, be sure you are viewing the Calendar tab and not one of your Mail tabs.
The Options page opens.
Click Reminders on the left side of the page.
Set default values for your reminders.
Time - the time you want your first reminder to occur. You can specify No Reminder.
Again - the time you want a second reminder to occur. You can specify No Reminder.
Via - indicate how you want to receive your reminders.
Note: Your email choices are those listed in your Yahoo! account.
To add or remove addresses, click the gear button to open your account
page. On your account page, click the Update your contact
information link, make your changes, then click Save.
Click the Back to Calendar button to save your default reminder settings.
All new events will show these default reminder values.
Defaults are great. They eliminate the need to set the options every time you add a new event. Defaults are also flexible in that you aren’t forced to use them...you can set different values for specific events.
