iOS Push Notifications not working for TIME SPECIFIC Reminders!!

I am using the latest version of Todoist.

iOS is not pushing notifications for time specific reminders:

example: Take the trash out every day AT 10:02 AM

I have tested this multiple times with varying tasks. No push or alerts are sent to my iphone5.

Any suggestions?

Please clarify, are you typing "every day at 10:02 am" or "every day @ 10:02 am" within the due date field and are setting the time at least 30 minutes into the future?

If you're adding it within the task's name - that won't work and won't set a due date for it at all.

Best regards,

Ahh , the 30 min "in the future" was not being done. I was testing usually within 10-15 min intervals.

Can you confirm if there's a function or setting that I can do to make it so that reminders are sent before 30 min?

Or is 30 min currently the default and ONLY lead time?

At the moment, the default can not be changed. You can though of course add whatever reminder you'd like to a task. Through the reminders menu.
