+ Add Suggestion



I have to say that I really like TD, generally... however, the method by which you arrange reminders is INSANE! In order to have a time show up on the event in TDist, I have to create an automatic reminder, which automatically alerts me 30 min in advance. In order to be alerted at the time I want to be alerted (at the time of the event) I have to create a specific reminder, in a different place than the automatic reminder (basically creating 2 REMINDERS), which is causing me to become WAY too involved in setting up a simple reminder! Unless I am misunderstanding your whole concept, you really could take some lessons from Wunderlist and Any.do on the simplicity of setting up a simple reminder!

Something this simple, yet annoying, could prevent me from using a system that I otherwise quite like. Creating a task with a reminder should take no longer than 10-15 seconds... not a minute, and it should be able to be done in one place, not two! I NEED reminders, which with TDist, requires a $29/year payment... I don't pay extra for inconvenience when it comes by the truckload for free every day!!

Thanks for listening!

Hello Chuck,

You can access your account directly at https://todoist.com click on the gear icon in the top-right corner and go to the Settings -> Reminders where you can switch off setting a default reminder for tasks that have a due time.

Now, in order to set a reminder you can either right-click on it and set it to any time you want (incl. recurring dates and times) or simply type <remind tod @ 2pm> within the task name to set such reminder right away as you add the task.

Best regards,

Is there a way to list absolute reminders set for tasks on the main project task list display?

At the moment, a reminder is indicated by an alarm clock icon, but there is no date/time information present. You have to drill down to the absolute reminder box to look at the information.

Hello Ian,

Unfortunately, the only way to see all reminders attached to a task is by right-clicking and going to the "Reminders" menu. We will consider adding a better way to see or manage them in future updates.

Best regards,
