How do I turn reminders off entirely?


I don't want any email from Todoist at all, just the online version, how do I turn reminders off entirely?

Hello Sean,

in order to turn off default reminders for tasks with due times, please go to Todoist Preferences -> Reminders and choose "No default reminder" from the drop-down menu.

If you want to delete current reminders, please hover over a task with a set reminder, choose "Reminders" from the gear icon drop-down menu and use the "X" icon to remove any active reminder for this task.

Best regards,

Hi David,

I am trying to follow your instructions above but I can't turn off my reminders, and now every task I create is setting them. It is extremely frustrating.

I've set my settings as "turn off reminders", but they continue to appear. Can you please help? I really do not want this feature turned on,
