Turning on this strategy allows you to set a reminder for a task.
Currently, the way you get reminded is limited to browser/desktop notifications, but adding push notifications for the phone and other types of reminders (email etc.) is high on our to-do list right now. So stay tuned! ;)
How do reminders show up?
Depending on which browser you use to use the Marvin web app or on which platform you use the desktop apps the notifications look and function slightly differently.
This is how a notification looks on Chrome:
Usually you have to allow notifications for app.amazingmarvin.com the first time they try to pop up.
You can often configure if you want there to be a sound etc. in your local settings.
How to set a reminder for a task
You can set a reminder for on any task by including a specific time in the title of the task and then clicking the time (the time will be a colored link).
You can then select if you want the reminder to show exactly at the specified time or anytime before that:
Don't forget to save your reminder:
You can tell that a reminder is set if there is a little clock icon that appears next to the time.
Set automatic reminders
If you want there to be an automatic reminder every time you include a time in a task title, turn the auto-reminder setting in the strategy setting on.
Can you set multiple reminders for a task?
Not yet. But we are extending the reminder functionality soon to include multiple reminders.
