They are sent based on 5pm the previous day in your calendar's local time zone. From Google's page: Reminders for events that last the entire day ('All Day' events) are based on 5:00 pm the day before the event (according to your current time zone). If you choose to receive your reminder 10 minutes before your "All Day" event on August 24th, ...

It sounds like you are already using the right tool, Google Calendar, but you may benefit from using it slightly differently. I'd recommend creating a new calendar which you use for annual events only. Go to Settings > Calendars > and click on "Notifications" next to this new calendar. Here you can set up the default reminders for events created in this ...

Google Tasks does not provide email alerts. As mentioned by @Antoops, you can set alerts for Google Calendar events which may provide the functionality you are looking for. It would be nice to see Google add the ability to set alerts for tasks, but I think they have left it out on purpose (since a task list is something you should check regularly by design ...

Looks like a perfect use case for ifthisthenthat Put the internet to work for you by creating tasks that fit this simple structure: if this then that. Think of all the things you could do if you were able to define any task as: when something happens (this) then do something else (that). Have a look at the list of weather channel triggers.

Weather.com sends me text messages based off of certain conditions. It sends these alerts to SMS on certain carriers and to email. https://registration.weather.com/ursa/alerts/step1

Google Calendar supports SMS reminders for events in the Options section. I don't think this is available for Tasks as yet though. And yes, it worked in Europe (well, in the UK) for me.

Try Trello. You can create cards which are the tasks and users can then assign a card to themselves or to others. Clicking on a specific card will give you the history of the changes that have occurred (ex. John assigned this card to himself). You can also set up lists such as ToDo, Doing, and Done. Cards can then be moved to each list as the status ...

Go to the Gear Icon > Account Settings > Notifications > Email, then check if it's set to either 'All notifications, except the ones you unsubscribe from' or 'Important notifications about you or activity you've missed'. Also, check if you've unsubscribed to emails about Birthday Reminders. If yes, click on the corresponding 'Turn On' link.

I'm guessing this has to do with years of the Bayesian filter marking similar keywords as spam. You can create a filter for the email address it comes from (e.g. calendar-notification@google.com), then check the Never send it to Spam option. Hopefully after some time, Gmail will learn that these messages should not be sent to spam, and you won't even need ...

Remember the Milk

Remember The Milk app will do it. You can create a list just for Birthdays or use the Tag Birthday to be able to view all Birthday at a glance. You can have RTM mail you reminders.

My two cents: If you need SMS reminders for tasks, then your task-management system could probably benefit from some additional thought. You should be consulting and rearranging your daily task list multiple times per day. I use Gcal and Gtasks, assigning tasks to the day when I expect to actually do them ("do" dates, not "due" dates). On today's list, I ...

Google doesn't support sending reminders after the event or after 5PM in the current time zone for All Day events and there is nothing we can do about it client side, since this is mostly happening server side.

On the left side under the title my calendars there is a link that says configuration, click that one first. Then you enter a page with several tabs, but by default you enter in your desired tab which is calendar. In this tabs you will find a link called notifications, click that link. In that page you can set all the reminders of the events that you want ...

Google Calendar does not automatically send reminders for events. Only when a reminder has been set will a reminder be prompted. You can't set a reminder for individual users; you can only set reminders for the event which will prompt anybody who has access to a shared calendar. To set a reminder: Click on the event. Click on Edit event. Go to Reminders ...

This is a Google Calendar solution, and includes instructions on how to add reminder notifications, since the basic US Holiday calendar doesn't allow you to change Calendar-level notifications. You can try using Google Calendar to set an event on your calendar every time Daylight Savings time begins or ends. This works for events repeating on the first ...

There are two plugins available that provide various scheduling functions, including reminders for unanswered email: Boomerang RightInbox Both are available for Firefox and Chrome. They both also use the "Freemium" model. You can schedule up to 10 emails per month for free; if you need more than 10 per month, they offer monthly and annual subscription ...

You could do this with Toodledo. It would use Twitter as an intermediary. You can create a Toodeldo task by sending a DM on Twitter. You can send Tweets (including DMs) via SMS.

UrlPad does just what you want.

I think you will have to contact the support to have this solved from the inside. But you could also create a special filter that covers something unique from all these notifications that you're getting and trash them. I would guess that inside the body of the e-mail there is an e-mail with your old domain, since this was a Google Apps domain.

followupthen.com Email "NextTuesday@followupthen.com" and next Tuesday you'll get that email back in your inbox. That service is free. For SMS service, I think you pay.

Take a look at reqall Adding a reminder by email is for Pro accounts only, but the free accounts lets you add items via IM, web, phone call, smartphone apps, and it's really good at handling natural language inputs. There is iCal support as well as Google Calendar integration.

Google calendar automatically sends emails reminding you and the other involved people about the event, It reminds you some time before and then 5 or 10 minutes before the event. But if you double click on the event where you write all the event specifications and add your friends emails there is a part that says reminders there you can program when you want ...

Figure out which calendar the event exists on; look in the list of calendars on the left of the main display, click on the drop-down arrow to the right of the calendar name, click on "Calendar Settings". You'll see the timezone for that calendar specified; if it's the main calendar for your account, it will be the timezone you've given Calendar for your ...

Your reminder will go off at 11:50pm - i.e. 10 minutes before midnight of the all-day event. I just tried setting up a an all-day event with an alert to go off 800 minutes before. - i.e. at 10:40am - and it worked. i.e., the all-day event begins at midnight at the start of that day.

Agreeing with @rchern's comment about this being ideal for gadgets.stackexchange.com when it launches. That being said, a number of iOS4-enabled iPhone apps will do this, notably the latest version of Pocket Informant

I happen to use Yahoo Calendar, only because I was using it before Google Calendar was any good and never moved off of it. Now, with the iOS 4 upgrade on iPhones, the built-in calendar app syncs live with Yahoo and Google calendars. You'll get popup notifications on your reminder times. Not sure what Google Calendar does, but Yahoo Calendar lets you set ...
