GoldMine : Changing your Default Alarm Time

When you use GoldMine alarms to remind you about activities, you'll notice that the default Alarm Time is 10 minutes past the Scheduled Time.

To change this;

1. Go to Tools, Options, select the Alarms tab
2. Set the desired default Alarm time by entering a value in the "Alarms Default Lead Time"
3. Ok your way out.

Pro Tip : Alarms are nice to use, but remember, when you Alarm every single activity, the resulting barrage of Alarms can frustrate users. Sometimes users will become "immune" to the constant pop-ups, therefore negating the purpose of the Alarm to begin with.
