When I accidentally hit snooze and want to avoid alarm to ring again I go to Alarms and make 2 steps. Disabled and enabled. I think it kills the snooze. I think you cant know if one alarm is in snooze state.

There isn't a standard built in one, like Siri, but there are third party apps that do something similar, such as this one (that I'm not affiliated with, nor have used in anger)

I went to the Microsoft Store and just searched for "Alarm". There is an app called Tricky Alarm that does exactly what you are asking.

Log into your outlook.com account on the web and go to your calendar. Click the gear in the upper right-hand corner and click options. Then click on the calendar name you want to edit. There is a section called Notifications where you can change when and where reminders are sent to. In the case of my Birthdays calendar it sends notifications 12 hours ...

If you have Windows Phone 8.1 Developer's Preview installed then the recent Windows Phone 8.1 Update 1 will allow you to configure snoozing. Source

I had this issue too, but there is a work-around. You can set a series of alarms for the times you need with the alarm 6 tone (the only one that wakes me up!). Then Cortana can switch those alarms on (eg: say "Turn on my 6.00am alarm").

If 'Every other Monday' means every Monday from now on, you can do that with the alarm app. Last day of the month is something that is possible with the calendar app. I created an appointment (in my case I used the web interface of calendar.live.com) and added an reminder for the last day in a month. The appointment has successfully shown up in the phone. ...

I could find no other easy way to just turn off snoozing. other than this workaround here you can use Cortana as a workaround. Say "Turn off Alarms" to Cortana. Then say which one. Note: This will turn off the alarms and not just stop snoozing.

From Windows Phone Help: Alarm volume is separate from the overall phone volume and can't be changed. As long as your phone is on, your alarms will still ring out nice and loud even if you turn down or silence the phone volume. The above applies to any Windows Phone out there. I used to have an LG Optimus too and I can't remember being allowed to set ...

Yep just change it in each alarm, once. so if you save wake me up at 2PM, and a PM alarm is already there and set to Nostalgia.. then it will be fine. But its a deficiency, someone please add it to wishlist for windows 10. https://windows.uservoice.com/ they should always allow default setting on the same page, or use the last set as default.. ...

You can't change the built-in alarm (at least on my Nokia Lumia 925 with WP8). You can however browse the Window Phone Store, in a simple search for Alarm Clock the first result was an app which can be configured differently for each alarm (the link will take you to the US search, the results may vary though, according to your country, model, OS and provider)...

It is not possible to do this using the built-in Alarms app and developers do not have access to do stuff like this either with third-party app. It is a limitation set by Microsoft.

Unfortunately that is not possible with the Calendar on Windows Phone itself. Two points to note: 1- Even if you have multiple Windows Live calendars configured, they are all grouped under "Reminders" and so you cannot even enable sounds for one calendar and disable them for another. However you can enable email reminders for particular calendars. 2- You ...
