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.
| Once an appointment becomes due, Emacs displays reminders every
| `appt-display-interval' minutes.  You probably want to make
| `appt-message-warning-time' be a multiple of this, so that you get

| Note that this variable controls the interval at which
| `appt-display-message' is called.  The mode line display (if active)

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.
