Location/Time Based Reminders

This isn't a question so much as a comment. I really like ToDoist and I really like the added functionality of location based reminders.

I oftentimes need time and location based reminders, i.e.

"Every wednesday when I get home do the laundry" etc.

If I were to always get a message every time I was at home to do the laundry it wouldn't be very useful. Is there a way to do this currently or is it something that may come in the future.

Right now, location reminders go off when in that location. We will look into improving them so that they can work with more details.

This seems like a must. I just refilled a prescription that won't be ready until Thursday. But I drive by the pharmacy every day. Need a location reminder on Thursday, not every day until Thursday.

I also need to remind myself not to forget to pack something in my truck on Friday when I leave home. The location reminder is great for that so if I forget, I can quickly turn around and go back home. Obviously, I don't want that reminder going off every day when I leave the house.

Same here. This would be a great addition. I have the same problem as all of you above. I'v got a task to do on friday when i leave home but i dont want Todoist to remind every morning til friday when i leave home.

Any status update on this?

Hi Laur,

There are no plans to add this feature anytime soon but it's something that we'll consider adding in the future.

Location based reminders are awesome and have the potential to take Todoist to the next level. Although, I really need another dimension added to location based reminders in order to make it useful. For example, I would like a reminder to pay the day care bill when I arrive at the day care provider, but only on every other Friday when it is due. As it is now, I receive a reminder every day when I arrive at the day care provider.
