I want to add a task and be reminded in 10 minutes quickly. Can I quickly add such thing by for example adding "call joe +10m"?

Hello Joe,

Reminders are a Premium-only feature. You can choose the default reminder method (email, SMS or mobile push notification) and each time you set a due time for a task (such as "today at 1pm" or "tom @ 13:45"), a default reminder will be set to "30 minutes before" the deadline.

Each reminder can be modified and in addition to relative reminders which require a due time for a task, you can set absolute reminders. These can be quickly added while typing a task by including: <remind tod @ 12:40> within the task name.


Best regards,
David

Hi David,
that is not what I meant. I wanted to see if there was a quick add action that would allow me to do a "in x minutes" type reminder. For example, I am using launchy to quickly add tasks, and I want to get a reminder in 10 minutes to call someone. So I would create a task "call joe +10m !p1", and then I want to get a reminder in ten minutes. Or ten hours, or ten days. If such quick action was possible, then upgrading to premium would be worth it to me, otherwise I will just stick to autohotkey, launchy and growl to accomplish the same, but it is not as elegant as todoist...

Joe,

Unfortunately, that's not possible in Todoist right now, but you're welcome to add a feature request to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/
