Hello Phil,

If you log into the web-app, click on the gear icon in the top-right corner, choose Settings and go to the "Reminders" tab, you can set a default method of receiving reminders. Once you do, every task you create with a specified due time (for example: "ev day at 2pm") will have a reminder set to it automatically to 30 minutes before deadline.

You can also add a reminder to a specified time by typing <remind tom at 10am> within the task name.


Best regards,
David

Dear Todoist Staff,

I tried typing <today at 4.30pm> and <remind today at 4.30pm> within the task name, but the task is created without reminder.

Is there a way to set reminder in keyboard shortcut.

I also tried today @ 4.30 pm in the date and time section, but the default reminder is set as 30 minutes before i.e. 4 pm.
I do not want a reminder before 30 minutes I want it only at 4.30 pm.

Is there a way we can set the same with keyboard shortcut.

With Regards
Balaji

Hi Balaji,

Typing the due date in the task name is not a supported feature. To easily set due dates and time, please create a task and press tab after you're done entering the task name. That will bring you to the due date field wherein you can start typing the due date and time.

Regards,

Clyde
