Turn off iCal alarms and advisory tones for birthdays

Instructions: Battery replacement for the Ion Audio Blockrocker

Instructions: Turn off notices and alarms for birthdays in IcalToday it was that time again. My iCal annoyed me with an alarm on the iPhone because of some unimportant birthday date at 7:00 am. Time to finally start looking for how to turn off these annoying advisory tones. And as always, Google has been my friend ... here are the brief instructions on how to get rid of the peep attack for future birthdays from the iCal appointment calendar:

  • iCal is opened on the Mac
  • then you go to the list of calendars (they are usually displayed on the left in the sidebar)
  •  then you click on the calendar “Birthdays” with the right mouse button (or with the pressed CTRL key and the only mouse button you have)
  • In the menu you then select “Information”
  • and in the new window click on “ignore warnings”

This means that the properties of the alarm are still stored for each birthday, but the alarms are ignored and are therefore practically “turned off”. The alternative is to click on each individual birthday event and throw out the alarm manually. But why make it complicated when it can be easy.
