When scheduled items are entered with reminding turned on, the user receives the reminders as specified in the original scheduling dialog. It is important to note that the Calendar system itself need not be running in order for the user to receive reminders, though clearly the computer system on which the Calendar tool is installed must be running.
As described in the earlier scenarios, there are three types of reminders that
the user can elect to receive: on-screen message, audible beep, or email
message. For example, when it is time for the dentist appointment scheduled in
the user receives the on-screen reminder shown in Figure 31.
Figure 31: Dentist apppointment on-screen reminder.
the user scheduled an event with a 2-day advance email reminder. The reminder
message sent by the system for this event is shown in Figure 32.
-- Should look pretty much like on-screen reminder. --
