Events are a type of Calendar entry that is structured around a scheduled time. Event reminders are a way to notify you and your Calendar shares about upcoming Events in your Calendar. Before creating an Event reminder, be sure to set the timezone for your Calendar so Keep&Share will know what timezone you are in. (Otherwise the reminders are sent out according to the California timezone, since that is where Keep&Share servers are located.)

You can send these Event reminders to yourself, or to other Friends and Share Groups in your Share List. Learn more about sending Event reminders to others.

Note: Event reminders and sending reminders by text message are one of the advanced Event Editor features available only to paid Keep&Share accounts.

Setting an Event reminder for yourself

You can send up to five Event reminders for an Event by email, text message, or both. To send a reminder to yourself, click on the "Add Reminder" tab in your Event Editor to open the Event reminders dialog. Follow the steps in the image below:

In the Event reminders dialog, click on the drop down menu to select the mode of reminder (email, text message, or both). This will open options to label and schedule your reminder relative to the time of the Event. Once your have selected your settings, you can click "OK" to send the reminder on schedule, or "Send now" to send a copy of the reminder to yourself right now. The reminders button will change in your Event to show that reminders are set.

If you select the “Never” option in the drop-down menu for what kind of reminders you'd like to receive and select your “Send a copy to...” options, the people you’ve selected to receive a reminder will still get an email reminder for your Event.

Setting a Default Event reminder

You can turn on Default Event Reminders for any Calendar — to always get a reminder at the same time before/after all Events.

In the “Customize” screen click “Set up default reminders” under the “Advanced” section. Be sure to check the “Turn on” check box.

Note: If you give Edit Rights to individuals in your Share List, those individuals can then set up Task Reminders and Notifications using your Share List.
Note: The time reminders are sent is based on the timezone of your Calendar.
