How to set automatic reminders to work on the very exact due date/time?


I need to set automatic reminders to work on the very exact due date/time.
I mean, if there is a task for today at 5PM, the reminder should appear at 5PM.
I need automatic reminders, but Todoist is setting reminders to all tasks I create to work 30 min. before the due time.
To change or set reminder task by task manually to work on "due time" isn't productive when you have a plenty of tasks.
So, any means, even by writing in a syntax in the task title to set reminder on "due time" automatically would work for me.
Thanks in advance,

Hi Carlos,

The only way to do this is to edit the reminders for the task. So create the task with a due date of "today at 5pm" then go into the Reminders area (click the task, menu appears underneath), and remove the 30 minutes before, then add one, there is an option for 0 minutes before.

Totally identify with this issue. I don't understand why you are forcing the default reminder of 30 min. before the deadline. Todoist should either ask me directly via popup (like it brings up the calendar) or have an option in the settings to change the default. reminder time. PLEASE ADJUST THIS. Thx.
