How do I add a reminder?

You can set your preferences via the web/desktop app. Please see the reminders section of the help for instructions on setting up email, IM, or SMS reminders for your Remember The Milk account. Please see the Push Notifications section of the FAQ for more information on pop-up reminders. Note: If you set up reminders, we recommend using the 'auto sync' setting in the app. This will ensure that Remember The Milk has the latest additions and changes to your tasks, so your reminders are up-to-date.

Additionally, you can add more specific reminders to individual tasks by:

  1. In your task list, tap on the task you wish to add a reminder for.
  2. Tap the Edit icon to the right of the task name to enter the editing mode.
  3. Tap Add Field then tap Reminder.
  4. Configure the reminder.
  5. Tap Save then Save again.
