    Hi,

    I have repetitive tasks one after the other, so when I add one event into calendar, related tasks are coming with it.
    There is a notification when event is about to start.
    What I need is some notification tells me that event is happening now will finish in some minutes later. Is it possible with current calendar app or should I need to install different calendar?

    From what I understand of your need, you might have to set up a second event in your calendar to tell you that the first one finishes.

    This seems like something IFTTT would be useful for. I tried making a recipe but the standard functions don't include a trigger for a calendar item ending and the calendar options they have are pretty limited. It might take a bit of fiddling to make it work with IFTTT.

    That's I could do, but I don't see no benefit to create two events every time.

    If I didn't get wrong, ifttt just make changes if I make any changing in somewhere else. If it is like that, there is no point to use it; simply, I can create another event.

    That's not exactly it. It works off of events that trigger other events. In theory the existing calendar item ending could be a trigger for a notification. But I didn't see anything built in that would do that. IFTTT is still pretty limited as to what they can do.

    Your use case is outside of how most people use calendar items so it's not built into the system. There isn't going to be an easy way to do what you want that doesn't involve setting up more appointments or reminders.

    There are limited options. starting an event is option but ending an event is not. Thank you though.

    But it can be use only for single events, no for auto repeating.

    So check and enjoy the new version of SN available in one hour on Google Play, turn on in Settings/Calendar/Notify before the end and Minutes before.

    I would be a little surprised if you couldn't get the program Tasker to alert at the end of an event... It can automate a lot of actions, and alert on a variety of conditions.

    I will be looking at SN as well, as I like a variety of tools in my tool box.
