Nightly Follow-Up Reminder

mbmccormick says:
I have a problem where I get home for work or class and I get too comfortable watching TV or something and I start to ignore the Tasks that I had due today. I setup my Reminder settings so that Remember The Milk will email on the day a Task is due at 8:00pm (as opposed to sometime in the morning, like most people probably do).

This way when I am sitting around being unproductive, Remember The Milk will send me an email at 8:00pm letting me know if I have any Tasks leftover for the day.

Hi mbmccormick,

This is a really cool idea -- I've never thought about daily reminders being sent anytime other than morning!

This is definitely a good idea. I don't really need a reminder in the morning, I'm going to check anyway to see what's on the agenda for today. One in the evening to make sure I've got everything done, or even just have got everything marked as done, is an excellent idea. I've set mine for 6pm.
