10.8: AppleScript to close iCal Alerts - Mac OS X Hints
“I’d just installed OS X 10.8, and booted to find the right side of my screen covered in Birthday and Calendar notifications! Since installing I’ve clicked ‘Close’ on way too many iCal notification alerts.

“Here’s a script to close them all for you in one fell swoop. Since I still want iCal to popup a Notification alert for event alarms I’ve set, I don’t want to simply disable all the iCal notifications (or set them to temporary banner alerts).”

Calendar Alerts in 10.11.1 - no sound : OSXElCapitan
"Has anyone else had an issue with not getting audible alert notifications of calendar events?
I have banners turned on in Settings (banners are displaying) and the Play sound for notifications checked.
Volume is all the way up. Audio is confirmed to be working fine.
Confirmed that I have a functioning alert sound selected.
Anything else I should be trying?"

Calendar does not play alert sounds | Official Apple Support Communities
"When the default Alert in Calendar for Events is set to 'At the time of event' and Notifications is set to 'play sounds for Calendar alerts', the Alert sound plays when Calendar notifications are displayed on the desktop screen.  However if the default for Calendar Alerts is set to None  and then an alert is manually set in a Calendar event itself, the alert will display on screen but no sound will play even though Notifications is set to play sound for Calendar alerts."
