Reminder dropdown not accessible



so I read a post on your blog (http://d.pr/INYX) and wanted to try the feature of setting a reminder before a task is due. But in the web version (using chrome) I can't access the 2nd dropdown menu that reads "remind on a specific time" by default to choose any other option. It's just greyed out.

Using my android app I see the option "before:Wednesday" for a task set due on Wednesday, but even if I choose it my choice won't be taken, it'll just go back to "on a date"

Please advise.

Hello Stefan,

This drop-down menu is only available if the task itself has a due time.

In other words - the only way to set a relative reminder such as "2 hours before" is by adding a time to the task so that Todoist knows 2 hours before what time should it remind you.

So if the task is set to "tomorrow at 2pm" - you can use the menu, if it's just "tomorrow" - you can't.

Best regards,
