Snooze List

hiteshnh says:
Since I rely on my phone app to remind me of due tasks, one thing I noticed (and perhaps others did too as evident from the number of votes on this idea) was the absence of a snooze option in reminders. Sometimes I get a reminder when I’m in the middle of something else and instead of opening up the task properties and modifying the due time, I just dismiss it from the notification panel. And then it slips out of my mind.

As a workaround, I created a smart list called Snooze with the following search criteria (using the NOT operator).

dueBefore:now NOT dueBefore:"today 12:01AM"

This list will show up all tasks that are overdue from earlier today but not tasks that are simply ‘due today’ (i.e. tasks due today but with no due time)

I created a badge for this smart list on my homescreen so that I can quickly see all dismissed tasks in one place and either perform them or set a new date/time for them.
