    Not sure if this has been mentioned before, a search did not bring up anything. But since the update to ios6 a couple of days ago...a feature that I always wanted is there! When scheduling a calendar entry, there is now the ability to put a "second" alert....so say an hour before, then again 15 minutes before....I love it, thank you apple!

    Now if we could only set up group email distribution lists, I would be really happy ( :

    Did anyone else see this one?

    That was one of the shipping features of iOS 1.0.

    It's definitely very handy...though not new (been there for as long as I can remember).

    The said feature was available on my original iPhone. Yes, it was and still is quite handy.

    I don't see this feature in my Calendar. Can you provide a screenshot?

    You need to set the first alert before you see an option for setting a second one. If you create an event and set an alert, you should then see the option.

    It is only there when I am using my icloud calendar, if I switch to put appointments in my work exchange calendar i can only put one reminder.

    See attached. Maybe I'm missing something? Thinking its because I'm using Exchange account?

    Doesn't work for Exchange or Gmail calendars. Only local or iCloud.

    It hadn't occurred to me but this appears to be correct. I see it when creating an event in my iCloud calendar but not when using Exchange (work or Gmail). Not sure about other email/calendar services or Gmail as a non-Exchange setup.

    .....

    Oh c'mon... It's 5:00 in the morning here and I almost woke my girlfriend from laughing at this

    Edit: I meant the exchange just read funny. Wasn't laughing at OP.

    Yea, but if you never used local or iCloud/Mobile Me calendar you would never have known this feature existed. I've used exchange since my first iPhone and never new this feature existed until this thread.
