1. Using Reminder

Using Reminder option is one of the easiest and best way to get alerts on the time you have set the task. Similar to the number of alarm you set on iPhone/ iPad, you can set multiple reminders on Calender and along with this you can also receive the short note about the alert. In this manner you can receive both alarm and notes for that task. To enable this follow some steps:

  • Go to Launchpad on your MacBook from Dock or directly tap on Reminders from the dock.
  • Tap on Reminders app from the application lists
  • Tap on the Plus icon (+) to add new reminder alert

  • Write your task and after the competition, click on the information (i) icon next to the reminder you have created.
  • Tick remind meoption and set the date and time to receive an alert.
  • Click Done once all set.

Now the reminder is activated, there is another option to receive a reminder by using at a location option instead of choosing only remind option. You can also tick both. But you have to enable the Current location settings from the Privacy option.

2. Use Calander to set Alarm on MacBook

As already discussed MacBook does not have a particular app to set alarm but all time associated apps provide this feature and you can take a lot from this. Here’s how the calendar works to enable alarm on Mac.

  • Go to MacBook’s Dock and either tap on Launchpad and look for Calendar or directly tap on Calendar from the dock.
  • The calendar preview mode is there and you can choose the view mode from Day, Week, Month or Year from the top tab area.
  • Double tap on the day/date on which you wish to set alarm.
  • The small box appears next to the date you have selected. You can enter here a new event, location, set a time when you want to receive alert and at last, you can also attach links, notes, and attachments.

Once done with these steps, close the Calendar app and your alarm is activated. If still, you are interested to have the app like Clock on an iOS device, then we recommend you to go for a third-party app that works quite similar to Clock works on iPhone and iPad.
