Thanks a lot for the suggestions, but manual workaround does not work for me, as I want org to take care of giving me a notification in advance in the agenda buffer.For SCHEDULED and plain active time stamp, I don't think we need to have a default ahead notification setting as with deadlines, but it would really be nice to support the <..... -3d> format. It would be even nicer to have a new keyword (like "SCHEDULED@") that indicates a strictly scheduled item (just a fancy term for "appointment") and hence a default ahead notification setting can be applied. The lack of real appointment support in org-mode in fact is a little bit puzzling to me, since SCHEDULED item may or may not be strictly scheduled, while plain time stamp item may or may not be something that needs to take actions on (as it could be just an event).Wanrong
Actually, I was wrong on the "lack of real appointment" support claim above. We can define a TODO heading with a *plain* active time stamp as an appointment, and hence maybe a default ahead notification can be applied to those items.
