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 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, or to other Friends and Share Groups in your Share List.

Setting an Event reminder for a Group

To send an Event reminder with a group (whether its a group of friends, or all of the Shares on your Share List) you must be sure that Sharing is set for your Calendar, and that you have set up your Keep&Share friends list.

Once sharing and your friends' list are set up in your Keep&Share account, you will then need to access the "Reminder" dialog in your Event Editor. Follow the steps in the image below:

Once you have the Event Reminder dialog open you can send a reminder to a group the same way you would send a reminder to yourself and by clicking on the checkbox next to "Shares" (which will send it to everyone you've shared the calendar with) or "Custom" (which will send it to a specific list of Friends or Share Groups). See the image below:

If you want to send email reminders to other friends who don't have Keep&Share accounts, all you need to do is:

  1. Click on the blue "these friends" link next to the "Custom" option in the reminders pop-up dialog
  2. Paste your friends' email addresses into the "Type in a name or email address" text field
  3. Save your changes

After you've selected your settings, you can click the green "OK" button to send the reminder on schedule, or "Send now" to send a copy of the reminder to the group right now.

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. See the image below for how to set up your Event Reminder.

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.
