Location aware reminders on recurring tasks not a good idea?


Either I'm doing it wrong, or this isn't how it's supposed to be used, but...

Yesterday I added location reminders on some recurring tasks I have. The location I set was my home, and yes indeed, when I got home the phone nicely reminded me what I needed to do.

I did the tasks, and marked them as finished in the Android app.

Now, this morning the phone once again reminded me about these tasks, but now saying that this task is due in one week, another in about a month (or whenever the recurring date was set).

I don't want to be reminded of e v e r y single task just because I'm at home, not until they're due at least. Did I perhaps do something wrong, or isn't it possible to combine location reminders with recurring due dates?

Hello Magnus,

There's indeed currently no relation between the task's due date and a location reminder. The reminder will go off every time you're in the specified location.

We will consider changing this in future updates, though.

So, if I'm understanding this correctly, location reminders never end?

If so this needs to be fixed. The default should be a location reminder happens until it's been done. If you want it to be recurring there should be an option to mark it as recurring.

The location reminder ends either if you manually remove it from the task, or if you complete this task.
