Where did you see that? It probably needs some changes.

C-h v appt-display-interval RET says

| appt-display-interval is a variable defined in `appt.el'.
| Its value is 3
| Documentation:
| Interval in minutes at which to display appointment reminders.

Just setting appt-display-interval and appt-message-warning-time equal
to (say) 12, should work fine, afaict - but I have not tried it.


PS A propos of nothing, one strangeness that I have observed is that at
   least the *final* notification (and maybe all of them) is one minute
   late, but I haven't chased it down yet.
