If I create an appointment in the Android* calendar application, I can add a reminder that will pop-up on my phone at the configured time. It will automatically synchronise the event with Google Calendar (which is great!).
If I create the appointment with Google Calendar, I can add a reminder that will either be sent as an email, be sent as a text message or appear as a web-browser pop-up. Again, the event will be synchronised with the phone. I really like the Google Calendar email notifications as they appear in Gmail Manager as well as on the phone, so I'm much more likely to notice the reminders when I'm at work and have my phone on silent.
Is there any way to create an appointment in the Android calendar application and at the same time set up a reminder to come by email rather than as a calendar reminder notification?
Thanks in advance for the help.
