Events are a type of Calendar entry that is structured around a scheduled time. Event reminders are a way to notify you and others that you share your calendars with about upcoming events in your calendar. Before creating an Event reminder, be sure to set the time zone for your Calendar so Keep&Share will know what time zone 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, to other Friends and Share Groups, or by adding email addresses directly to a custom list. To add a reminder to your events for others you'll need to open the "reminders" panel first. Follow the steps in the image below:

Once the "reminder" dialog is open you can choose who you want to send your reminders to.

Choosing who to send reminders to

If you click on the checkbox next to "Shares" this will send reminders to everyone that you have shared your calendar with. This includes any Friends or Share Groups that have been added to the Share Control. See the image below:

If you click on the checkbox next to "Custom" you'll then need to click on the blue "custom list" link to choose who you want to send reminders to. This will open a new dialog where you can manually choose Friends and Share Groups either by typing in their names or choosing from a list that you see when you click on the "+" button. 

You can also type in email addresses into the text field to send reminders to visitors who don't have Keep&Share accounts. See the image below:

After you've selected who you want to send reminders to, you can then choose the schedule you want to send reminders on or you can click on the "Send Now" button to send a reminder immediately. See the image below on how to choose your reminder schedule:

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.
