Can I turn of the 30 minute reminders?

I have Todoist set up across PC/Mac and iphone and I just want reminders at the time of the task instead of the default 30 minutes beforehand.
Is there a way to turn off these 30 minute reminders for all current and future tasks rather than as or when I create them. I want to just set the task and reminder on my iphone and have it notify me when the task is due.

Hello Steve,

You can turn off the default "30 minutes before" reminders (which will affect all newly set tasks after that) by logging into your account at https://todoist.com (through a desktop computer), going to Settings -> Reminders (gear icon in the top-right corner) and choosing "No default reminder" from the drop-down list.

However, this will not set ANY reminders to your tasks at all so you will not be reminded at the time the task is due as there is no default "0 minutes before" option.

We will consider making this configurable in future updates allowing the choice of setting when exactly would you want the default reminders to arrive and you're welcome to vote for this request in our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/showProposal/298/

Best regards,
