How To Change Alarm Snooze Settings

Ver 10

 

Is it possible to change the snooze times when creating an alarm?  I would like to add a 2 hour snooze.  

 

Thanks for your advice,

John if you go to Tools,Preferences and then to Scheduling Preferences you can set the default preferecnes for each of your activity types including alarm and default durations.

Thanks so much.  As I've mentioned before, I keep trying to fit a square peg in to a round hole b/c of coming off of Goldmine. 

 

Have a great day.

That will change how much notice the alarm will give prior to the activity. You can't actually set a default for the Snooze function

Thanks for the response.  I was seeing if I could add a 2 hour snooze to the drop down list when snoozing alarms.

Not an option... 90mins or 4hrs.
