Getting started

Cozi helps you remember appointments in several ways:

  • By displaying automatic reminders on your mobile device from our iOS or Android apps using on-device notifications.
  • By sending automatic reminders to family member's email addresses (when mobile apps are not used or mobile on-device notifications are turned off.)
  • By supporting up to three reminders for any appointment for Cozi Gold users.

Read on to learn about setting up automatic reminders for appointments in Cozi.
