allow reminders to be entered relative to the date of the task


I see that one can request a reminder at a specific time, or on a specific day. It doesn't appear that one can specify a relative time or date (eg "remind 3 days" meaning "remind 3 days beforehand", or "remind 3 hours" meaning "remind 3 hours beforehand"). This would then be especially useful for repeating appointments.

Hello Martin,

it is possible to set relative reminders, but you must specify a time within the task's due date. For example, a task with a due date:

every 14 days

will not have an option to set relative reminders, but:

every 14 days @ 15:00

will allow you to set a reminder:
- 10 minutes before deadline
- 30 minutes ...
- 45 minutes
- 1 hour
- 2 hours
- 3 hours
- 1 day
- 2 days
- 3 days
- 1 week

Best regards,
