How to Customize Reminder Settings in Cozi

Once you've got an appointment entered, Cozi gives you the option to set a reminder. If the person receiving the reminder has a verified phone in Cozi, the reminder will be sent by text. Otherwise, the reminder will be sent by email. 

If you do nothing but click "Remind Me", you will automatically be notified 30 minutes before an appointment. What if you want to be notified more than 30 minutes before? You can choose to receive your reminder 1 hour, 1 day, or even 1 week before your appointment occurs.

Here's how to do it:

  • Click on your appointment to open the dialogue box.
  • Click the Remind Me box (if you haven't already).
  • A message will appear to let you know that a reminder has been set for 30 minutes prior to the appointment.
  • To change this timing, Click on the words "30 minutes" (in blue) and choose the time.

Once you click on Save, or in the case of recurring appointments, Save Going Forward, your reminders will be set for the time you designated. That's all there is to it. No more missed appointments!



Love these reminders! We put our whole family's schedule in Cozi and send reminders for everything: take medicine, empty the trash, call grandma, school holiday, etc etc. The Cozi reminder is better and more accurate than a reminder on my phone. My 'smart phone' has a reminder at 1 hour, 1 day, or 1 week. Cozi is way more flexible!


I really like the reminders in the calendar. it is great that they can go to a certain person's cell phone, at specific times. I also love the capability for emailing and/or retrieving the grocery list. when I get to the store, it's on my phone and not still on the fridge! lol


I'd like to option to set the default reminder time to something other than 30 minutes.


I am loving the calendar, but can you please add an option for more than one reminder? There are times that I would like to be remnded of an event a few days ahead of time, and then the day before, just to be sure.


Cozi reminders for calendar events are suddenly not working.

They worked fine up until the last day or so - suddenly we have stopped receiving any text reminders to anyone in our family. We've made no changes to our phone accounts, other texts come through fine, but Cozi reminder texts have stopped working completely.


I second Lisa's motion to allow multiple reminders. I like how Google Calendar allows you to create as many reminders as you like. It would also be nice to set reminders for the family that can be sent via text. ABSOLUTELY LOVE COZI!! Thank you so much!


I agree, multiple reminders would be fabulous, but so would an indicator showing a reminder is set
