An energy company has required the ability to send calendar event reminders to users within a schedule specified for each event. The reminders for the list task must be sent in 2 or 3 days before the Start or Due Date.
Office 365 Alerts add-in allows users to send reminders, using different types of custom schedules. Among other features, Office 365 Alerts add-in has the option to send alerts Before or After X number of days (X value is specified for each item in a number field of the list).
As an example, you can add a number column “Days number for alert” to your events or tasks list (or any other list type).
