Get notifications like Outlook?

I'm using the desktop app on Win10. In Outlook I am able to setup reminders for a project at any interval and multiple intervals. I haven't found any setting in Trello that deals with notifications other than on or off and my looking for "alert" and "notification" in the Power-Ups provided nothing that seemed to deal with it.

Is there an option somewhere for creating custom and multiple alerts at custom intervals?

@Michael Stevens Trello notifications aren't configurable, but you can, for example, use the Butler Power up to create a notification by mentioning you in a comment on a card. Something like:

3 days before a card is due post comment "@michaelstevens this is due in 3 days"

Yeah... that has possibility but you can't do much of anything without paying and that ain't gonna happen for me... Can't even try it out to see if it would work like I'd want it to.

@Michael Stevens Okay well if you're looking for a free solution (with albeit a trickier setup) you can use Trellinator which is a Google Apps Script library I wrote for automating Trello:

This code would remind you 3 days before a card was due:

You could install the "scheduleNotifyRelativeToDueDate" function, and it would schedule the "action" version. The article above takes you through how to setup Trellinator and install functions globally.
