Changing appointment time stamp into deadline will work, but I just think conceptually it is kind of twisted, because "deadline" means you have to do it BEFORE the specified time, while "appointment" means you have to do it at the specified time. Many calendar systems (like Google) support ahead notifications for appointments, so maybe we can consider extending the definition of ahead warnings in org-mode to scheduled items and active time stamps. Just my 2 cents. (Or, maybe I should make a better habit of looking ahead a few days in my agenda buffer. :-))

In Org-mode, by definition, Deadlines are the ones with ahead warnings.
Why don't you just turn the appointments where you need early reminders into deadlines?

Currently we can set the number of days a deadline should be notified in advance with something like this:

* TODO Do this
DEADLINE: <2008-03-24 Mon -30d>

But it does not work on a plain active time stamp like this:

* TODO See Doctor
<2008-03-24 Mon -30d>

Can we consider adding this feature to plain active time stamp? It would be great for appointment notification.

Thanks for giving that a thought.
