Change default reminder time from 30 min to a user defined time (e.g. 10 min) is the first thing I searched for once became a premium user. I most needed reminders for meetings that I can attend by walking between buildings. So 10 min would be perfect and 30 min is too early.

Agree... I can't understand why a 30 minute, inflexible, reminder alert would exist. User defined, with Outlook type flexibility, would be optimal.

Hello Chuck,Please note that you can switch off default reminders and add reminders manually to any task - they can be due 10 minutes before deadline, 1 hour before deadline or longer. Also, in case of absolute reminders, they can be recurring and set to a specific time, for example - type <remind ev day @ 2pm> within the task name and such reminder will be assigned to it right away. You can right-click on any task and choose "Reminders" to manage them.Best regards,David

I have tried that and, regardless of what time I set the reminder to, the push alert hits my iPhone 30 minutes in advance. Every other task manager that I have used, or am trying, sets reminders off at the time that I desire.Perhaps there is a setting that I am missing.

Chuck,Please log in at https://todoist.com click on the gear icon in the top-right corner, go to Settings -> Reminders and then select "No default reminder". This will switch off the option of having a "30 minutes before" reminder set up for every task that has a due time and will allow you to only use reminders manually.Of course, we will also consider to add an option to choose the default time for reminders.Best regards,David
