Notifications

D

I'm new to ToDoist - just evaluating the product. Not sure if I'm missing something obvious, but I'm sure I used to get notified when a task was due, but now nothing happens. I have notifications set for a tone as well as vibrate, but get nothing when a task I have set is due.

Hi Drew,

- Is Notifications turned on in the settings page of the app?
- Is the default reminder set to PUSH on the Todoist.com's website (top right corner)
- What did you type exactly into the date box to add this task?

Regards,
Brendon.

Hey Brendon. Yes, Notifications are turned on in the settings page of the app. I don't understand the distinction between notifications and reminders. I am using the free product right now, which doesn't include reminders, so I can't turn on PUSH from the web interface. I added a date and time using the popup Calendar/Clock within the New Task box.

Thanks

Drew,

Yes, that would be the case. Those are Premium features, and you will not get a reminder about a task (as you created one). Notifications are for shared projects, to put it simply. Such as someone you shared a task with has completed it.

Regards,
Brendon.

Ah, OK, now I understand. Thanks for the explanation.
