    Exclamation Primary alert on iPhone calander doesn't work

    So here is my issue with using the iPhone calendar.
    1. I currently sync with google calendar
    2. I can set an event and set an alarm for lets say 1 hour before the event
    3. I receive the alert reminder an hour before the event
    4. However, I do not get an alarm at the time of the event.

    For example, lets say I have dinner plans today at 8:00 PM. I set my alarm to remind me an hour before 8:00PM. I will hear the alarm reminder at 7:00PM but when it's 8:00 PM I do not get any alerts. How is this possible. Am I doing something wrong?

    did you set a second reminder for the time of the event?

    if so, does the google calendar show both reminders if accessed through a browser?

    What you have is correct. You hear the alarm (alert) you set. If you want the alarm/alert at the time the meeting starts, you need to set one for that time.

    One of the (many) reasons I use Pocket Informant is it allows me to set multiple alerts for a single calendar event.
