Calendar Alerts

You have the ability to send calendar reminders to your email and/or mobile phone.  Once you are on a Calendar web-page you will see the Alerts icon Alerts Icon.   This is where you can subscribe to the alerts for this calendar and any other calendars that are being displayed within that specific calendar.
