I've always wanted to set up repeating alarms for Google Calendar (that turn off when the "off" button is pressed.) If it isn't possible to choose this option from Google Calendar itself, Is there any third-party software that can do this? I'm using Ubuntu, and also dual-booting Windows.

What operating system are you using? – wizlog Jun 21 '12 at 14:10
It appears that the CalAlarm app supports such a feature. – Anderson Green Aug 18 '12 at 19:21

There is a Google Chrome extension Alarm, I'm not so sure, but I think it has what your looking for.

I'll edit my answer if I find something else/better or if you provide a little more detail for the features your looking for.

Edit: I think Remember The Milk is what your looking for."In addition to the powerful web app... mobile to the web to apps including Gmail, Google Calendar, Twitter, and more. Remember The Milk apps are available for Android, iPhone, and iPad, and the MilkSync service syncs with Microsoft Outlook..."

It mentions Google Calendar specifically, and the "details" tab mentioned feature to sort alarms by ..."repeating".

Does "Alarm" have the ability to set Google Calendar alarms that repeat until dismissed by the user? Also, does it synchronize the alarms across multiple Chrome installations? – Anderson Green Jun 21 '12 at 14:13
Also, I'd like to know whether similar software is available for mobile operating systems such as the iPod Touch. – Anderson Green Jun 21 '12 at 14:14
@AndersonGreen Oh, so you want a calendar that will sink with your moil device, and Google Calendar. OK. – wizlog Jun 21 '12 at 14:15
I also want the alarm to repeat in a loop until it is dismissed by the user. – Anderson Green Jun 21 '12 at 14:17
@AndersonGreen I think Remember The Milk is what your looking for... If not, just post a comment to that effect. – wizlog Jun 21 '12 at 14:28
