While setting up an appointment (that already has a reminder), simpy tap on the Blue Bell 2 icon on the bottom tool bar to set up your 2nd reminder. Once you save the appointment you will see your primary appointmend and a secondary appointment as designated by the Blue Bell Icon in front of the subject. This secondary appointmenet will include a note field with the primary appointment information fields copied to it. You will also have a link (designated by the link icon) from the secondary appointment back to the primary appointment.

NOTES:
1. The 2nd reminder can be set before or after the 1st reminder, BUT, if you delete the 1st reminder, the 2nd one will be deleted also. You cannot have only a 2nd reminder without a 1st.

2. Once you set a secondary reminder for 9:00PM for example, 9:00PM will be the default time the next time you set a secondary reminder. If you change it to 7:00PM it will be set at 7:00PM the next time you set a secondary reminder.

3. Any time you edit and save a change to a Primary Appointment the Note field of the Secondary Appointment will be overwritten. If you want special infomation attached to a secondary reminder it is more reliable to put it in a task and link that task to the Secondary Appointment.

4. It is not possible to add a 2nd reminder onto a 2nd reminder. Only 2 reminders per item are possible.

5. You CANNOT have 2nd reminders on RECURRING items or if you turn an existing appointment or task into a RECURRING one. If you need to set a recurring item, you may want instead use a template to set those multiple items. Converting an existing primary appointment to a RECURRING item will delete the associated 2nd reminder, if present.


6. Colors and icons set in the original appointment will be copied to the 2nd reminder as well.
