Default Displaying due iOS reminder on PC?

Arguably OT but I'm guessing there must be other iPhone users here,
so...

I can enter Reminders and Calendar events on my iPhone, iPad or my Win
10 PC. They are synced in the sense that they all appear in the lists
on all three computers. But how do I get the alert message to pop up on
my Win 10 PC when due please? After much research Im frustrated that
Ive still not found a solution.

There's a dialog at the end of this page.

I think the intent of the design, is to create
a "plumbers nightmare", a sea of sliders you have
to manipulate to make stuff work.

Another point might be, that not all the things
stuffed in a calendar may have a Notification
associated with them. Schedule a "meeting" as an
event, as that's the thing most likely to have
a "reminder" concept associated with it. If your
birthday is on a certain date, entering that
in the calendar wouldn't be "noteworthy". When would
it be appropriate to give a Notification dialog for
that ?

Thanks Paul, but I'm lost!

Surely it doesn't have to be this complicated to get an alert when I've
asked for one?

Sorry, I don't follow. Are you asking if I'm using Outlook? No, I'm not.
Are you suggesting I need to use Outlook? If so then I'll pass, as I
have a reliable email app already. I regard email as completely
independent of my reminders issue.

Anyone here with an iPhone or iPad, as well as a Win 10 PC?

What calendaring system are you using to share between the different
devices? I use Google calendars and am able to get notifications across
many devices, although not tried windows 10 yet.

Ok. So the settings you showed elsethread are windows' own calendaring
systems. They won't change anything, as you're finding out. You need to
check the settings for icloud on your windows machine. I don't use icloud
so can't help on the specifics I'm afraid.

The Windows 10 notification option applies to logged on Win10 user for the
Win 10 apps(mail, calendar, etc.)and also to the Outlook app(iOs or Android)
for a given Microsoft Account in use across those same devices.

Hi Terry,

I use iCloud and have Windows 10 synced with my iCloud account as well. I
didn’t notice about the past due popup as most of the time I use a MacBook.
I get past due popups on my Mac all the time. You setup a one-time iCloud
password for use in Windows 10 for your email account, which should setup the
calendar on Windows 10. Are you on the latest Windows 10 which I think is now
1803?

Hey Terry,

Do you get the Windows 10 notifications from Calendar on other calendar’s,
like from Outlook.com? I setup a test after the last post on Windows and it
popped up just fine.

Maybe, check settings:

All Settings System Notifications and Actions Calendar

Do you have that all turned on?

Hi Terry,

Just tested a calendar event created with Fantastical 2 on my iPhone. Asked
for a 5 minute before the event reminder. This did indeed pop up as desired
on Windows. Check those settings I mention. Works fine over here.

Hi Peter,

Thanks for those three replies, pleased to have you on the case!

However, I'm not really clear I understand some of your questions.

"I use iCloud and have Windows 10 synced with my iCloud account as well.
I didnt notice about the past due popup as most of the time I use a
MacBook. I get past due popups on my Mac all the time."

So you're using a Windows PC and a Mac? I would expect no problems using
iCloud entirely on Apple computers. I guess we need to confine the
discussion to your experience on your Win 10 PC.

--------------------

"You setup a one-time iCloud password for use in Windows 10 for your
email account, which should setup the calendar on Windows 10."

But as mentioned up-thread, I don't use Outlook or other calendars. (My
email and newsgroup reader is Forte's Agent.) But I do *have* Outlook
and GMail accounts, set up years ago. So if it's a possible way to solve
my problem I would willingly experiment with my Outlook account, even
though I never use it to receive or send email.

Could you step me through exactly what you did to create this 'one-time
iCloud password' please. Why would that not affect my *existing* iCloud
password (my 'Apple' password)?

--------------------

"Are you on the latest Windows 10 which I think is now 1803?"

Yes, I updated yesterday to 1803 (17134.48)

--------------------

"Do you get the Windows 10 notifications from Calendar on other
calendars, like from Outlook.com?"

I don't use any other calendars. I'm confused enough with *one*!
