I want the ability to have the reminder feature send me an email AND a mobile phone notification.
How can I do it?
In the web-app and our browser and email client plugins, you can right-click on a task and choose "Reminders" to get to the reminder management menu for this task. Here, you can set multiple reminders - each through any of the 3 available reminder channels.
This applies to both absolute reminders and relative reminders (available for tasks with due times).
I use the quick text method, example: <remind today at 5pm>
When I use this. I want the reminder by default to send it to both my phone and email.
Having to add a new reminder is cumbersome, unless i can do it via text as well.
That's unfortunately, not possible right now, but we may consider adding such option in the future. You're welcome to add a request to our Votebox: http://todoist.com/Vote/
IMO having a drop down menu and being able to click (box) multiple reminders or all would be extremely useful and efficient.
