    If you click and hold the middle of the 3 buttons on the right, you will see a drop-down with options for snooze duration.

    With Mac OS X 10.0 to 10.7 there was always a snooze delay with times of 1, 5, 15, 30 minutes; 1 & 2 hours and 1 day.  Now with Mountain Lion there seems to be one single snooze:  15 minutes.  Very sad - as for years I have been asking for "infinite snoozes" - i.e. being able to set a snooze delay (from 1 minute to 100 years!) or even a specific time (Tues 31 July 2012 at 11:15 am for example). 

     

    Now the only option seems to be to set an alert, then if one is at the computer when this triggers (or when one gets to the Mac) click to open and essentially re-create the event alarm trigger time.  aaaaaahhhhhhhh!!!

     

    Giant leap backwards this 15 minute snooze!

     

    Any workarounds?  Other programs?

     

    Thanks,

    Well perhaps...  that is in case one does not connect their device or computer to the servers. Sometime it takes time for information to be shuffled around.

    The only one that I know of Stephen is BusyCal, but I am going to see if there are others out there.

  • 19. Re: calendar alerts don't have snooze

    Thanks! I see there is a 30 day free trial with BusyCal so I'll test that ASAP.

     

    Another related issue is how to get snoozing with iPad's Calendar app or BusyToDo or ???? Events created on the iPad with iPad Calendar app sync with Mac's Calendar program and BusyCal – I can snooze with BusyCal on the Mac; but not via BusyToDo or Calendars on the iPad. So if I'm on the iPad when an alarm goes off that I want to snooze… guess I have to get out my Mac and snooze from there!?!

     

    All this seems to be a bit "Work in Progress"…

     

    Appreciate all suggestions & comments.

    I switched to BusyCal at the Lion upgrade, and haven't looked back. It's very good and hopefully improving.

    Wow, BusyCal looks vastly superior to iCal.  If Apple doesn't fix the snooze issue in an update soon then I'll probably have to give BusyCal a shot as well.

    Are there ever any specials on this program BusyCal? I think it is listed at nearly $50-which would be one of the more expensive programs that I have purchased outside of Microsoft office.

     

    Not trying to be a cheapskate here at all just conscientious with regards to my budget.

     

    Thanks very much.

     

    Best regards,

    This is what it looks like in ML. Looks like a snoonze .

    Carlo TD--

     

    Yes, that is what it looks like in ML.

     

    You said: "I have one computer with Mountain Lion, and one with Lion... how do I see this in Lion?"

     

    Did you create a test event in Lion as outlined?  Do you understand what the problem is?

  • 25. Re: calendar alerts don't have snooze
    Carlo TD Level 3 Level 3 (550 points)

    Yes. It is slightly different. Before in Lion it read "alarms". In Mountain Lion it shows "alerts". But Mountain Lion does have a snooze button. The snooze button in Mountain Lion is automaticlly 10 min.

     

    But Lion did have a little more wiggle room. But now.. it is more like a default of ten min.

    Carlo,

     

    The absence of this functionality is extremely significant for a lot of users, not simply "wiggle room":

    For myself, and others (not just on this thread), the removal of this functionality makes iCal completely unusable.

  • 27. Re: calendar alerts don't have snooze

    I am not denying that. I agree. This is what it is in the current new event window... and the way it was, seems better (in Lion). And ML does not give a quick way to adjust this.

     

    I do understand... sometimes those quick short cuts really are helpful... just like those special key combinations  that copy, paste, or edit.

    I agree that this change to snooze is just awful! It has also done away with the former option of "Remind me 1 hour before event starts", which was very handy.

  • 29. Re: calendar alerts don't have snooze
    Mark Burr Level 1 Level 1 (0 points)

    Awful isn' it.

     

    I've been using ML for a few months now and thought I was just going mad that it didn't offer any snooze options like previous versions of the OS.

     

    To me just having a 10 mins snooze is plain rubbish. Sometimes I want to be reminded in a day, or in an hour.

     

    Really hope 10.8.1 fixes this, or some third party add on can.
