The application RemindersWhile it is great for carrying the shopping list, it allows us so much more than that. Thanks to the possibility of scheduling notifications of different tasks, we can organize daily life in a simple and efficient way. In this organization, a few little-known application settings come into play that will allow us to customize it as we wish.
When personalization makes the difference
When we schedule a reminder, the normal thing is that we do it for a specific time and day, for example by saying “Hey Siri, tomorrow at 3:00 PM remind me to call Tim Cook”, but we can go a bit more far. Since iOS 14, we can schedule reminders for a specific day,
In the first three cases, the reminder is programmed to notify us at 9 a.m. although we may change the time of the notice. We are doing it:
- We open the app Settings on our iPhone or iPad.
- We entered Reminders.
- low Reminders that last all day we touch Time and we write whatever we want.
To be able to receive notification of reminders assigned to today at 7 a.m. if we get up early, or at 10, for example, when we have already arrived at the office and we had the meeting in the morning, it’s a little change that can make a big difference.
The other interesting option to customize is the way in which reminders that we have missed are handled. Here we have two options: display them as late tomorrow or not. In the first case, we will see the little red button on the icon to remind us of an unfulfilled task. We can adjust this behavior in the same step three, by enabling or disabling Post as late.
On Mac, the operation is the same, both for the notice time and for overdue recalls. We will adjust them like this:
- We open the app Reminders.
- On the menu Reminders we choose preferences.
- We adjust the time of the notification and turn on or off View all day reminders as late
Note that the reminder time, as well as the late reminder parameter, is unique for each team, so that we can configure the two variables differently on our iPhone, iPad or Mac. In general, we will surely want to unify this behavior, but if we want to receive a first alert on our iPhone in the morning and a reminder later when we are in front of our Mac, we can do that.
Easy no? The application of Reminders from our iPhone, iPad or Mac can help us schedule the to-do list we have on a specific day and organize our agenda and commitments. Being able to receive notifications when it is convenient for us and we agree on the tasks we need to accomplish is, without a doubt, of great help.
