    When i go to set up an alarm for a task using the default task , to-do application, for a default it says 5 days in advance to ring the alarm and i always have to change to zero, is there a way to change default to zero rather then it keep putting 5 days for default, thanks

    been looking for that answer for a while...the best advice is to get a third party task/calendar application, although I can't see spending money just so I get to customize the default alarm.
    I imagine some could write a program, but I haven't found it yet.

    I am doing this from memory so it might be almost right, but you definitrly can change the default calendar alarm time.
    I believe you go to phone screen, then menu (lower right button next to alt), then to system perferences, then to maybe general, then to sounds and alarms?, then to application calendar, then alarm time.
    If I don't have it exactly right above, it is there somewhere under phone / system perferences.

    yup, u can pick whatever sound u want for calendar or tasks (two different programs) but for some reason tasks picks that u want to get notified 5 days in advance as the default

    the 5 day default alarm is a very frustrating "feature" of the tasks app. I'm considering datebk 5/6 as an alternative [and a general calender replacement as well]...I like the interface over its main competition, Agendus...

    i guess the only way around is to get involved with maybe datebk then, i thought there was a smaller program i could of gotten involved in

    I can't seem to change default either. How frustrating. Has any body looked at the desktop app? I use outlook and will play with it there.

    In Tasks...
    The default is NONE
    When you select Alarm and go to the next screen, the check box is blank.
    If you click the check box the default time is "5" days earlier.
    Like others (I imagine) I would prefer it to be "0" days earlier and simply set a time for the alarm.

    Short of buying a third party application, the best advice I can give is to not let it bother you. I've given up looking and now, instinctively, change it to "0" while entering the time for the alarm. Takes a second, no big deal.
