Hey All.... may be a dumb question, but....

Is there anyway to adjust the Alert/Alarm times for Calendar events....I would occasionally like to have an Alert 3-18 hours before an event, but default only gives me the choices of 5, 15, 30 minutes or 1-2 hrs or 1-2 days...same thing with the 'Second Alert'..

TIA

Mick

I don't know about using the Apple Calendar app, but BusyCal will give you a lot of control over the alarms you want.

I upgraded to Lion when it first came out, so my memory of 10.6 is old, but I don't recall there being a problem. Have you tried to highlife say the 30 of 3o minutes and change it to 25 or 250?

While it may not be possible to change an existing alert, you can create a second alert at the desired time and "edit" the existing one out of existence.

in iCal ... you can set to a given time and date,
and/or any number of minutes hours or days before
or after the event

much more limited on the iOS side
