I want to change the reminder/announcement times that appt uses. I know I can do things like:

(setq appt-message-warning-time 15)

to start the reminders 15 minutes ahead, but how do I change the interval inbetween? How to have reminders at 15, 10, 5, and 1 minute(s), for example?

    Does the variable appt-display-interval help any? Interval in minutes at which to display appointment reminders. Once an appointment becomes due, Emacs displays reminders every appt-display-interval minutes. You probably want to make appt-message-warning-time be a multiple of this, so that you get a final message displayed precisely when the appointment is due. – lawlist Jan 14 '15 at 21:15

    @lawlist, I don't think appt-display-interval would help for the example in the question, because the intervals are 5, 5, and 4 minutes: that is to say, the intervals are not all identical. Unless I'm mistaken, appt-display-interval is only capable of holding one value, which is then used for all intervals. – sampablokuper Jul 31 '15 at 0:00
