Yahoo Calendar Text Reminders

Yahoo is a very popular online provider of news, email and internet search services. In addition, it also provides its users with the handy online Yahoo Calendar service. This is used by many individuals and small businesses to organize their day to day activities, events, meetings and appointments.

The short tutorial below explains how to send automated SMS text and email appointment reminders directly to your clients from your Yahoo! Calendar.



About Yahoo Calendar

In order to access Yahoo Calendar you need to have a Yahoo account and ID which can be set up free of charge at the main Yahoo website. Please note that Yahoo Calendar currently only allows you to send reminders to yourself for your own calendar events. However, if you want to use Yahoo Calendar for managing your business meetings and appointments with staff or clients, then you can use a third party application such as SMS Client Reminders in order to automatically send external SMS text and email reminders directly to your contacts.

Yahoo Calendar uses the CalDAV internet standard and iCalendar (iCal or ICS) file format. This standard industry protocol means that you can easily set up SMS Client Reminders to communicate directly with your calendar in order to send SMS text and email reminders automatically to your customers prior to their next appointment.
