I have many calendars on Google Calendar:

  1. Hospital appointment (blue)
  2. Birthday calendar (yellow)
  3. Payday calendar
  4. My career's calendar

They are separated by the colours to make it easy for identification, but I would like to separate the notification sound to go with the colours. Some more urgent like an alarm, some less aggravating but still just a buzz or something.

It's confusing that they all use the same tone, and although via some apps I can differentiate these between text, voicemail, and Facebook, etc, it's not quite ideal. I have been looking through all calendar apps I can find for this thing.

Setting up distinct alarms for separate calendars within the Google Calendar app--or for separate events on any of those calendars--is not a feature provided in the Google Calendar app. If you wish to have that function and to continue using the Google Calendar app, you'll need a third-party add-in such as Calendar Event Reminder (CER) http://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=de.foobarsoft.calendareventreminder. That one costs a couple of bucks but there may be other options, perhaps even "free" apps.

    it seems silly that a simple feature like this isn't part of the Google calendar app... or even just the ability to turn off notification sounds on a per calendar basis! – Michael Aug 16 '17 at 18:45

The feature you are looking for in the Google Calendar is already present.
You can find the instructions to do that at google support here

    This does not answer the question, it is just a link. Second, by following the link you will see that it apparently is not possible to have more than one notification sound like the asker wants! – Michael Aug 16 '17 at 18:49

    Indeed, the information presented in the link directly contradicts the assertion that this answer makes. – Dan Henderson Oct 31 '19 at 13:55
