Customize your notifications in Google Calendar

Google Calendar offers different options for receiving event reminders. You can choose to receive your event reminders via SMS messages, emails, or popups within Google Calendar itself.

Here's how you can customize your reminder settings:

  1. In the calendar list on the left, click the down-arrow button next to the appropriate calendar, then select Reminders and notifications
  2. In the Event reminders section, select the reminder method from the drop-down menu and enter the corresponding reminder time (between five minutes and four weeks). If you'd like to add additional default reminders, simply click Add a reminder.
  3. You can also choose to be notified of specific activities on the calendar by selecting the appropriate options in theChoose how you would like to be notified section.
  4. Click Save.

Please note that when you make changes to the reminder settings for events on your calendar, the changes will only apply to you. Invited guests or those who have access to the events will receive reminders according to their own Google Calendar reminder settings.
