Displaying the Remind Beforehand Value in Calendar List View

I'm using O2010.

Creating Views with the calendar.

In some items, I have a reminder set to go off beforehand and I can set the time to 10 minutes, 1 hour, etc. This value (I think) is in the "Remind Beforehand" field. When this field is displayed in the calendar List View, instead of showing 10 minutes, 1 hour, etc. it shows a number. For example, 2 weeks is displayed as 20,160.

I did find this article concerning how to display the actual date.


However, I was hoping to display what I selected (e,g., 10 minutes, 1 hour, etc.) in the "Remind Beforehand" field in the list view of the calendar. Is this possible?

Thank you.

Same basic premise - you'll need to calculate the time. This formula uses minutes if under 60, hours if under 24, and days for everything else.

IIf([Remind Beforehand]<60,[Remind Beforehand] & " minutes",IIf([Remind Beforehand]<1440,[Remind Beforehand]/60 & " hours",[Remind Beforehand]/1440 & " days"))
