Can I add short-term reminders?


I would love the ability to set reminders (or even have default reminders set for each task priority level) that are shorter term than the ones I can currently find. Is there the ability to set a reminder for, say, 30 minutes after the task is created (without setting a specific time)? I am looking to use Todoist as a platform for prompting my actions in a helpdesk environment dealing with multiple tasks on the go so having something along these lines would be awesome.

unfortunately, it's not possible to set a reminder automatically to a specific time counting from the moment a task is created.

However, if you choose a default reminder channel (email or SMS), a reminder will be set to 30 minutes before deadline where the deadline will be its due time. Therefore, you can add a task at 1pm with a due date "tod at 2pm" and there will be a reminder set automatically to 1:30pm.

Best regards,
