Is it possible to set a default alert for new events in Google Calendar?

For example, every new event I put in Google Calendar I always set alerts as follows:

  • 15 mins
  • 45 mins
  • 2 hours
  • 1 day

At the moment I manually have to add each alert to each new event. Is it possible to have these set as a default?

Go to "settings" on the left under "my calendars" in the main view. Click on the "notifications" link. Select your preference in the drop down menus in "Event Reminders".
