Gary, Always nice to watch a video with just a simple theme. Makes you think of other ways of using apps that we use everyday, which is why we use our computer all the time. Thank you.
I assume this is with ios16? If I create a reminder on my calendar on my mac running Monterey with the email option and an alert, I notice on my iPhone with ios15, that the calendar shows it as two alerts, no email option. I don't see the custom option on my iPhone with ios15.
Dan: This video is for macOS, not iOS, and it is for the current version of macOS (Monterey). The email option is for Mac, not iPhone.
Gary, thanks, I understand it is for MacOS. My point is that if you create the calendar entry on the mac with both an email and alert as you did, it shows up on the phone as two alerts, since things are synced across. The email alert doesn't sync to the iphone as an email alert.
The other interesting thing is when I set up an entry on my calendar on the mac with both an email alert and a notification, I get two email alerts. Not sure why yet.
Dan: Do you have two Macs? If so, it would sync across to both and both Macs would send you an email.
Yep, that must be the reason. Thanks.
I hope these features sync with Google Calendar (events and reminders).
Love it! This is going to be a game changer in our family. Thank you Gary!
One question. Is there a way to get these reminders as a text message?
marcia: Not a good way. You may be able to do it creating a Shortcut in the Shortcuts app that sends a message, and then triggering it via a Calendar alert that runs the "app" it creates. But it would rely on your Mac being on (and I think awake) so it wouldn't be reliable. But a notification is a notification. What difference does it make if the notification is from the Reminders or Calendar apps, or the Messages app?
Question regarding the calendar for reminders. I did add a "new" calendar (in the iCloud) for a specific reminder. However all the other calendar events are in that new calendar. so I unchecked all the other calendars but all those events are still there in that new calendar. What did I do wrong?
Tom: Look carefully. A new calendar would be completely empty. Perhaps you simply had that calendar and your other calendar both checked so it showed both? Use the colors to differentiate, or simply uncheck the other calendar to only see your new one.
