Snooze for reminders

When creating a reminder for an event I DO get it on my mobile but it just appears one time. Sometimes I'm busy at a meeting or some other activity and can not attend it right away. Is there a way to enable some sort of snooze function?

Hi Sandro,

There are no options for iOS at this time but we will look into adding these in future updates. This is possible on the Android side of things.

For now though, you can add multiple reminders to a task, through the reminders menu and that can work.

Regards,
Brendon.

Yes but this is very annoying. This is really a basic function, that every todolist manager does.

If I press postpone when getting a reminder, it would just postpone the item, without re-activating the reminder.

Is there an option to postpone the reminder as well?

Hi,

Snoozing reminder in previous version of iOS was not possible yet as apps didn't have a way to do it. Now that we have iOS8, we'll look into this though we can't really say if it's possible or not yet. We'll consider adding this functionality in the future.

Clyde

What I don't understand is, that if you set a due time for a task, the app gives a reminder by default 30 mins before. Now, If I postpone the task, the due time is also postponed by 24h for e.g. How come the app doesn't recognize the new due time and add the default reminder?
Actually if I postpone the task before it's due, before the reminder sets off, it postpones both things.
How come this doesn't work once the reminder is given?

Hi,

The "postpone" feature only postpones the due date of the task. If you're using a relative reminder (x minutes before), then it will just use the due date as an indicator as to when to remind you.

We'll look into improving postponing reminders in the future.

If I postpone a task, which has a relative reminder, the reminder will not work for the postponed item. This is when I do it with the Iphone.

Hi,

Which type of reminder did you use? Can you also tell me which language your phone is set to?

I added a task with a due date, as such an automatic reminder was added. My language is english.

I would also find the ability to snooze reminders for a short period of time extremely helpful in iOS.

1) +1 of this idea!
2) I would also like to add that it would be very useful to have a list of the tasks whose reminders were not "silenced" yet.

I am interested in buying the premium version, but the Snooze function is VERY important to my workflow. Is this available yet in iOS? I can't purchase until it is there. Thanks.

Hi Kenneth,

Yes, snoozing reminders is already available though its defaulted to 15 minutes for now and there's now way to change it. It's only available on iOS8 though.

Clyde,

If I snooze a reminder on the iOS will it also be snoozed in other clients (e.g. web, outlook...)?

Tks

Hi,

If each device is set to go off the same time, then not exactly. If you get it on one of then devices before the rest (due to lag of some sort) then I don't believe it should go off on the others.
