I have a Google Calendar synchronized with Sunbird. Is there any possibility to set the SMS notification when I add an event via Sunbird?

On you google calender go to settings -> calender settings - > calenders -> Notifications

and set up a default reminder for sms this should do as you want it to.

@Matt: It doesn't work. When I add an event using Sunbird I still have only popup notification. – Tomek Tarczynski Jun 18 '11 at 12:45
Does Sunbird specifiy any reminders? if so then the default one is overwritten causing the sms to not be sent – Matt Jun 19 '11 at 10:33
In Sunburd the only type of reminders are popup reminders, You just set the 'before time' of a popup. I thought that maybe there is an application that can set some type of notification to all new events, but I cant find one... – Tomek Tarczynski Jun 19 '11 at 19:54
@Tom by not setting the before time in sunbird will give you your sms notification, but ofc this means you loose the sunbird popup, however this maybe replaceable with a browser plugin for example link – Matt Jun 21 '11 at 11:51
@Matt: It works! Sms notification is more important that popup for me so this is the answer! – Tomek Tarczynski Jun 22 '11 at 15:50
