No text in sms reminders

TM

Hi,

I am using todoist premium, and I am trying to get sms reminders to the phone.
Whenever a reminder is sent, it just has the text "
Reminder: ()

Which is no help because I don't know what it reminds me of. How can I solve this?

Hello,

Please tell me:
- What's the exact name of the task that you should be reminded of?
- In what language are you using Todoist?
- In what language is the name of the task supposed to be displayed?

Please note that our SMS provider unfortunately doesn't support non-roman characters so tasks named in many Asian languages will not be displayed.

If you have an Android phone or an iPhone, you could use our native apps and receive push notifications which should support any language.


Best regards,
David

- It happens for every task (the tasks are written in hebrew though).
- hebrew/english
- hebrew

I see, so I need to use push notifications with hebrew?

Yes, please try to use our Android or iPhone app and set reminders to "push notifications". If you're using Android 4.2, you'll even get interactive Jelly Bean notifications allowing you to complete or postpone the task or snooze the notification.


Best regards,
David
