Sorry miss cliked, any way the bug is a feature request :

I would like to be able to attach an action to an alarm.

Possible actions:
- play some sound/music;
- execute a script;
- open a file;
- send an e-mail;
- (current default action) show a reminder on screen.

I know this is duplicate, but some Webservices (eg Owncloud) could provide more actions on alarms, indeed I made a PR to add Webhook reminder (which i used to send me sms). It is binded to the AUDIO action.

So i could easily image that there is no urge to support others action because of the complexity it causes and security issue. But and this is important, lightning should really allow users to send alarms types even if Thunderbird does not actually honour them.

I really think this limitation should be bypassed somehow by adding more actions that may be marked as requiring a CALDAV service to be matched or something.

If there is any chance this could happen I’ll be glad to provide ideas/mockups to implement this.

Please don't raise a new bug if you already know this is a duplicate. If you have something to add, just comment on the existing bug or just vote for it if you have not.

Bug 718419 already contains comments and decissions about not to implement most of what you're requesting in Lightning itself but leave this for addons.
