No Google Calendar notifications on S5/Lollipop

I'm running Android 5.0 on a Galaxy S5.

I'm using the Google Calendar app (not the built in Samsung calendar app). I create all of my Google Calendar events on my laptop. The Google Calendar app on my S5 displays the events just fine.

In the Google Calendar app on my S5, I go to the Settings menu, I select my calendar from the Settings menu, and the "notifications" section says "1 hour before as SMS".

Also, in the phone's settings, I go to "Application manager", select "Calendar", and the "Show notifications" box is checked.

The problem is that I never get notifications for calendar events. (I expect that they would show up in the notification drawer, but I have never seen a Google Calendar notification there.)

Re: No Google Calendar notifications on S5/Lollipop

Welcome to Android Central! If you edit an event and select the notification option, then tap Custom, do you have options for "As Notification" and "As Email"? What you described would notify you only as a text message, not a device notification. Select "As Notification" if it's available.
