    In Calendar the default reminder for birthdays (all day) is 1 week. Is it possible to be notified/alerted each day of that week? I know that this is available in Windows Calendar and it's a feature which I would like to have on my iPad.
    Thank you.

    If you tap on the event (birthday) then "Edit" you can add a second reminder but it don't think you can add one for every day of the week.

    I just checked through my calendar apps and Pocket Informant allows me to do what you want, I just added alerts for every day in the week before my daughters birthday.

    Thanks for that; I've installed the app and it does all you say.
    Thank you.

    Could you, mayhaps, fix that auto-correct booboo? As, you're a "calendar [what]"?

    I tried and tried to figure out what you meant, but I just can't. Unless, of course, you mean what you say and you are a walking, talking coat with dates.... :D

    For the inventors of the Queens English we tend to twist it all out of shape.....then complain when folks from other countries "don't speak it proper like what we do"!
