Is there any way for me to create a template for the reminders I want for calendar/tasks?

Example: I use Calendar for work, for every single item I want 4 reminders (I want a 1 week notice, a 1 day notice, a 2 hour notice, and a 30 minute notice). I can do this manually but it's horribly time consuming when my calendar is constantly changing and I have literally hundreds of entries.

If this doesn't already exist, where might I go to suggest it? I know that the TB team is putting work into calendars for next major release, I think it could be a great addition.

So, you create four of the same event each with a different reminder.

Then you get a reminder a week before, dismiss it instead of snoozing it, repeat after each reminder?

I would just create it once, snooze it and reset the reminder.

I did not find anything here.

Thanks for the reply. Currently I can do multiple reminders on one event which I think is easier than snoozing or making multiple events but templates seem to make sense. Maybe even templates tied to tags - for personal things I generally only need like 1 or 2 reminders max (like a doctor appointment) for work stuff I need a lot more as my career requires a lot of planning and managing calendars.

I'll suggest. Knowing that it'll likely never be implemented, still worth documenting the thought.

Thanks again!
