I use Google Calendar to schedule all of my appointments and thanks to Google Sync, my phone is automatically updated whenever I add events on my computer and my Google Calendar is automatically updated when I add events on my phone. However, I’ve been late to a meeting before because my calendar notifications weren’t properly setup. I added an appointment and the default notification was set to 10 minutes. Unfortunately, I needed 30 minutes notice to be on time and forgot to change the default.
