Turn off alarm for calendar?

As far is I can tell there is not a global setting for turning off the alarm on the calender. Whenever you create a "Schedule" event on your calender the default seems to be for a "Reminder" alarm to go off "On Time"; that is to say the alarm will go off at the exact of your scheduled event. However, when you first create a "schedule" event you can scroll down to "Reminder" and choose from "On Time", "10 Minutes before", "30 Minutes before", "1 Hour before" or you can choose the one you would want which is "No Alarm". You can also find options on that screen for controlling what kind of alarm you want including the choice of having a "Vibrate only" alert to you scheduled event. You can always go back and "Edit" any events that are already scheduled and deselect the alarm for those events.

If you don't want to mess with the different alarms and alarm settings you might consider creating from the "Create Event" menu either a "Task" or a "Note" for a particular date on the calender. There are no default alarms associated with either of those. Create "Note is very easy to use. Just select a date and you can enter the time and other appointment information in the "Note" area of the "Create Note" screen.

I hope this is a helpful solution for someone.

I understand i can set my calender on my laptop to remind me of appointments how do i do that

Hi steven1960,

If the Microsoft Outlook Application is installed in the Computer, you can set reminders using that. If not, you may use another applications like Google Calendar or creating the .bat files. To create a reminder for an Appointment using Microsoft Outlook, please open the Outlook Application and press the Ctrl + Shift + A Keys. This will open an new appointment window. You can set the reminders there.

Hope this helps.

Good Luck!

Please post back if you require further assistance.

Thanks for using FixYa.
