Calendar Schedule Help
Do you need alerts to notify you of special days? Automatic calendar schedule help is available to remind you of important events!
Entering appointments on your to do list is a good start to tracking your activities. But if you have many details to track, or if you enter items on your calendar but forget to check your schedule daily, you can get help through automatic notifications that remind you of special dates.
These reminders can alert you in a number of ways. For example, you can tell a calendar help service, “Notify me next Tuesday to call Grandma,” or “Remind me to update my schedule in one week,” and you’ll receive notifications via email, text message or phone to keep you on track.
There are several free services available online that will help remind you of special dates. BirthdayAlarm provides free birthday, anniversary, holiday and event reminders to manage your schedule, and also offers free ecards, invitations and party planning tools. BirthdayAlarm also provides a “My Calendar” page so you can track all your events at a glance.
MemoToMe offers free unlimited email schedule reminders. Expanded help features and additional services are available through Platinum Edition upgrade, which is offered as a free trial for 30 days. Should users decide to go with the upgrade, they can simply name their own price! The charge for the upgrade is whatever the customer feels is fair.
Discover a great website but want to check it out later? Hit the Resnooze button! Resnooze shoots out email reminders to yourself that will periodically arrive in your inbox until you take action to stop the reminders. Not limited to website reminders, Resnooze can nudge you on birthdays, gifts to buy, tasks to accomplish or anything else you want reminders for. Frequency of messages can be adjusted from a few gentle nudges to constant nagging--it's entirely up to you.
Similar to Resnooze is HassleMe (HassleMe.co.uk/), one for the ultimate procrastinator who desperately needs help through numerous repeating reminders. This is a service that will remind you of the obligations on your calendar schedule at random times. You can set reminders to come at approximate intervals, but you’ll never quite know exactly when to expect alerts. It’s like having an automated nagging service!
MyMemorizer is a free online calendar with reminders sent via email or SMS text messages to your mobile phone. It can help manage your own schedule and also let you subscribe to groups to keep abreast of activities shared by friends or colleagues.
Need help tracking another person’s schedule as they progress on a project? Try PleaseNotify.me, a free online service that lets you assign a task to someone. If that person doesn’t mark the task as completed by the calendar deadline, PleaseNotify.me will alert both you and the person assigned to the task. Schedule reminders will continue daily until the project is completed.
Mobile Reminder apps
RE.minder is a free, five-star rated app available in the iTunes App Store. It offers a lot of flexibility (you can ask it to remind you of something on your schedule in nine minutes, instead of ten, for example). Brilliant in its simplicity and adaptability, this calendar app can help keep you on track by reminding you of appointments, special days or any event for which you want an alert.
Reminder App is a clean and simple iOS app that clearly and unmistakably alerts you how much time is left before each task is due with both an alarm and a large image showing the date and task. While this is not a super-power app, it does allow users to filter tasks by category and achieves its objectives cleanly: reminding you to take care of something!
For the Android platform, check out the Life Reminders app. This free app found in Google Play will help you keep on top of your calls, appointments, tasks, birthdays and all those other little details of life that need to be wrangled. When you're reminded to place a call, this app doesn't just tell you to do it; it displays the number to call within a button. Simply tap the button to get that call crossed off your list, or, hit the snooze button to put it off a bit longer. This app is available in several languages, including English, Spanish, French and Russian.
Another Android app, NoteToSelf, is very simple in design, yet quite effective for busy people who don't want too many distractions in their reminder service. The clean and simple design interface of this helpful app allows users to make quick notes to themselves of what needs to be handled. Entries can be quickly cycled through for users to see at a glance the number and type of outstanding tasks remaining. The upgraded version of NoteToSelf is MyReminders, a paid app that takes reminders to a higher level.
Calendar Schedule Help From Siri
If you have an iOS device that includes the buit-in Siri function, you can easily create, change and cancel appointments on your schedule without ever having to first launch your calendar program. Here's a brief demonstration video that shows how to leverage the power of Siri for quick schedule updates:
Reminders by Phone
Wakerupper is a schedule website that lets users enter a phone number and message for one-time or recurring reminders by phone. Another handy use of Wakerupper is to receive a phone call to conveniently help you escape from a boring date or meeting!
CallTheFuture.org is a no-registration site that sends calendar alerts and schedule reminders by phone.
Follow Content; Remind Others Automatically
Other kinds of reminders are available, too. Notify.me will send an alert via mobile phone, desktop application, instant message or email whenever new content is published online. This is not so much to help your calendar schedule as to remind yourself about content you’re interested in following up on.
LetterMeLater is a free service that allows you to use your existing email service to compose emails and schedule them to be sent at a future date and time. A very handy help for reminding those folks in your life who sometimes need an extra prompt!
If you're rather techno-savvy, you can build your own pestering email reminder using Google Docs. This reminder system goes beyond the basic capabilities of Google Calendar. It does require some work to set this service up, but it results in a fully customized system tailored specifically for your personal needs.
