recurring reminder time


I have a recurring reminder with a due date but no due time and now want to set up a recurring reminder for it. Since there is no due time, I cannot use relative reminders and am not able to specify a time for the reminder - it always defaults to 11:59pm of the date I specify.
I tried

ev 21 days start 07/25 @ 06:00am

but the reminder is created as

every 21 days start 07/25 @ 11:59pm

I work around by setting the reminder to start on 07/24, instead of 07/25; that way I get the reminder 6 hours earlier than needed, which is not a big issue, but I would love to see it at the specified time, instead.

Hello Andy,

It is possible to set absolute reminders for tasks without due times or due dates. The correct formula based on your example should be:

ev 21 days @ 6am starting 7/25

Note - you must place the time of the reminder earlier because the reminder itself must be set to 6am (ev 21 days @ 6am) and not the starting date at the end (starting 7/25 @ 6am). Also, please use "starting" instead of "start".

Best regards,
