I am currently subscribed to myasics ics running calender which shows my training plan. Its default alert is set to one week before.

I want to change that to two alerts. One being the day before and one on the day. I cant seem to edit this default.

How do I alter it?

On a Mac running a current OS, this is how you would go about adding multiple alerts for one event.

enter image description here

  • Double-click your event
  • Click the date/time of the event
  • Click the 'Alert' field and select when you would like your first alert to happen (notice that there is a 'custom' field)
  • Now that you've selected a time period for your first alert, if you hover over the 'Alert' field you should see a small '+' symbol to the right; if you click it, it should trigger a second alert option.

On an iPhone:

  • Locate your event and tap it to open it
  • Click 'Edit' in the top right corner of the screen (Note: If you don't click edit and instead only try to adjust the alert section from the main window, it will not give you the option to set up a second alert.)
  • Scroll down to the Alert section; choose the time frame for your first alert
  • Now that you've set the first alert, you should see an option for 'Second Alert' below the original 'Alert' option (Note: The 'Second Alert' option doesn't look like it exists until you set up the first alert)
  • Choose a time frame for the second alert and then click 'Done' in the top right hand corner of the screen
  • Thanks but I'm on an iPad Pro and tapping on the event does not bring up an edit option anywhere.

  • Also on my iPhone 5 while I can change the default alert there is no edit option on the top right of my screen and therefore no 2nd alert option brought up.
