Can google calendar send out sms alerts to multiple different phone numbers?
i run a staff rota using a google calendar. i see that sms alerts can be sent to your phone to notify of events.
could it be set it up so that the person doing a particular shift is reminded 24hrs before? Obviously this would involve many different phone numbers and linking them to the person on the rota.
thanks

I have exactly the same requirement albeit for different reasons.

My partner and I are thinking of using Google Cal to get our lives under some sort of control. So we want to be able to access the same Calendars and set SMS reminders for our own and joint events to be sent to our respective phones. I would have thought this was a common requirement and I'm somewhat dismayed to find that, from my cursory search of Google's help data and global searches, that this is not available. I'd love to be proved wrong here.

Does anyone know if this forum is moderated or monitored by the Google Calendar development team?

Is there anyway of requesting new features?

I would also like to have the ability to send SMS reminders to multiple phones. I use Google Cal for all family events. It would be great to be able to send event reminders to my kids and DH's phones for events that they are involved in.

I also would like to have alerts sent to my family who shares my calendar. We use Google as our family calendar. I am the only one who gets notifications of events. It would be extremely helpful.

has anyone found a way to SMS multiple phones from one Google Calendar acct?

I am also having a problem viewing that area while trying to set up my reminders.  It seems to be behind "show me as" and "Privacy this event is".  Does anyone know how to fix this or have a work around?

The answer is "No, but...."

No, you cannot tell a single Google account to send reminders to multiple phone numbers.  Basically, one account, one number - and that's it. Regretfully, spammers kind of ruined it for the rest of us honest people.

BUT.

You can do a couple of different things to get around that.  

If you have multiple cell numbers that you control, you might be able to pull it off with Google Voice.  Depends on a few circumstances - whether you have a phone number, and whether it will distribute the SMS to the other numbers as well.  You may also need an invite to G/Voice if you don't currently have it.

Also, note that anybody can create a Google account, and does not require a Gmail account.  It's just that the Gmail account sort of trumps the other email if you go that route. =)  So if the other people everyone here wants to get the notifications, they should create an account, and add their mobile phones in the same way you did.  From there you can share the appointments or calendars with them.

I want to do the same thing for a club to send reminders to everyone but its not that easy for me but what everyone else can do if it just a few persons, is just send an email to the google voice number and make sure the messages are forwarded to the gmail account. after you receive the text in gmail it will generate and email address associated with that google voice account "yourgooglevoice.sendersnumber.secrect co...@txt.voice.google.com" after your get these generated email accounts add them as guest on your google calendar or create a filter stating that any calendar reminder is forwarded to these addresses which will go straight to cell phones via sms. Hope this might help others

So where do we find the answers? I too would like to send reminders to different cell numbers to remind my kids of things.

Please add this feature. Everyone in my family needs sms notifications for upcoming calendar events.

This would be an AWESOME feature. I am managing my bosses appointments and he wants to be able to have his calendar send an automatic SMS to his clients 24 hours before their appointments. Only thing is, they are always just one-off appointments. I understand that google don't want to help the spammers, but there has to be a way to get 'trusted' status to access such a feature.

The answer is above.  One user, one google account, one number.  It's not because you're not trusted, it's because of the spammers ruining it for all of us.

I am happy to see so many people interested in this feature.  Hopefully someone from Google will see these???
 
I am trying to use Google calendar for 2 functions.  1 for our office staff to be able to coordinate and be notified of appointments.  And 2... for our team to be notified of events, meetings, etc. 
 
My first choice would be if the Calendar Event Reminder could automatically be sent to all of the team member's cell phones as an SMS.  I don't know how to do this really.  I am going to attempt to figure out what demdex suggested to do, but that seemed a bit complicated.
 
If anyone has any other suggestions, I am interested.
 
Thanks

Repeated this post from another section
This seemed to be similar and the same solution should work.
If you work with your IT department you should be able to use this workaround

"Don't know if this will help anyone reading this post, but here goes
I work with church groups and I am also an IT consultant.
Using our church domain I created an email address called cale...@xxxxxx.com., where xxxxxx.com is our domain name.
For this email address I created a forwarding list. In the forwarding list I add any email address or cell phone SMS address.  The SMS text address format for most cell phone providers can be found by using Google Search.  There is one gotcha to this trick - each person that answers toggles the attend button for that email address. 
Hope this helps someone"

delighta.com allows you access a lot of google services using nothing more than SMS.  This includes adding entries to the google calendar via SMS, getting notifications via SMS, etc.
