Set and edit reminder notifications in Yahoo Calendar

Let Yahoo Calendar remember important dates and appointments for you by sending reminders to notify you of upcoming events. Set default reminders for your events and change them when you need to. When setting up two notifications for the same event, the second reminder ("Again") should not be the same interval as the first reminder ("Time"), and should be made closer to the event than the first reminder.

Configure reminder settings

  1. Click the Calendar icon Image of the Calendar icon in Mail. in Yahoo Mail.
  2. Click Calendar full view.
  3. Click the Settings icon Image of the Settings icon. | select Calendar Options.
  4. Click Reminders.
  5. Select when and how you want to receive notifications.
  6. Click Back to Calendar when finished.

Note: Changes to default reminder settings will only apply to events created after the settings were altered. You'll need to edit reminders for preexisting events individually.
