These noti­fi­ca­tions are pre­sented as an alert box or noti­fi­ca­tion panel with a mes­sage accom­pa­nied by a sound and the vibra­tion of the device.

You can con­fig­ure these set­tings here. When you cre­ate date-relevant objects in your app, entries will be added to your device’s Cal­en­dar with reminders set accord­ing to the pref­er­ences you spec­ify here. You can also spec­ify that you want entries added to your device’s Cal­en­dar with­out reminders, or that you don’t want entries added to your device’s Cal­en­dar at all.
