Hi,

My apologies if already posted.

I am starting to have luck with the calender online now. However, if i try and set up a date, i am unable to make an alarm, be it message or message with sound.

Any luck on this or anyone know?

I don't see the ability to make alarms in the online version on me.com.

Not sure they put this functionality in.

There is no alarms/reminders option in the Web version of iCal. It kind of makes sense in some ways, because it's a web application you wouldn't have it running all the time like on your Mac so you'd have to sign in to get the notifications. What bothers me though, is if you set up an event in MobileMe you would then later have to log in at home to set a reminder on that event that would pop up on your home computer, iPhone etc. They should at least have the ability to create the alarms so they would function on the devices when the event is pushed down from MobileMe

Exactly my thoughts. Ignore the alarms in the web browser, but carry them down to whatever apps support them.
