How to Edit an Alarm in Android Marshmallow

The alarm feature on my smartphone is something that I use almost every day. I can set an alarm for the same time every weekday morning by making a few changes in my Clock app, and this functionality has allowed me to replace a dedicated alarm clock, while also making it easy for me to use an alarm while I’m traveling.

But if you have to work earlier or later, or if your personal schedule changes to the point that your existing alarms are no longer useful, then you can follow the tutorial below to change an existing alarm clock’s setting on your Marshmallow phone.
