Alarmclock reminder

MP

For most of my tasks i use reminder without any sound notification. My tasks have deadlines, but they are not actual hard deadlines. But some tasks i need to execute on a specific date and time, like pick up my daughter from daycare at an unregular day / time.

Could you make it possible to add an alarm clock function (make a sound untill i confirm) as reminder notification?

Hi Mark,

Todoist already has reminders for tasks. Just enter a due date such as "friday at 2pm" and a reminder will go off 30 minutes before. You can also click on the date icon to pick from a calendar. If you click on a task, then the 3 dots, then Reminders you can add any reminder you'd like there. http://todoist.com/Help/Reminders

Brendon.

Dear Brendon,

Thank you for your fast response. I already found this option and i am
using it, its really neat especially the localisation, but i am looking
something more.

On most of my reminder i only need one pling or message on screen. But for
a small amount of reminders i would like a continues sound untill i turn it
off, like an alarm clock.

Now i manually set my alarm clock if i really must execute a task at a
specific date and time.

Best regards,
Mark

Dear Mr. Wadey,

I am totally agree with topicstarter, it will be very convenient to have 2 types of reminders (e.g. reminders and alarms). Reminders can be set automatically, but alarms must be set manually, or for example alarms can be set automatically if task is everyday, most of tasks need this kind of alarm are repeating most of times. And alarms must stop signaling only after pressing necessary button, in the best realisation of this feature.

Thanks in advance. :-)
