Choosing When you want to be Reminded

In this lesson for Reminders on the iPhone we look at how set when we want to get notification for a reminder in the Reminders app on the iPhone.

Accessing the Information Screen for a Reminder
The first thing we need to do is access the Information screen for a Reminder. There are a couple ways to do this; you can tap on the ‘i’ to the right of the reminder you want to access the information screen for, or you can swipe to the left on a reminder until you see ‘More’. Tap on more to get to the Information screen.

Setting a Date and Time for a Reminder to Alert You
When you are on the Information screen for a Reminder, you’ll see ‘Remind me on a day’. Tap on the slider to the right of this. Two new options will show where you can set the date and time of the alarm and if you want it to repeat.

How does the Reminder App Notify You
You will receive a standard notification for the reminder. When you receive that notification, you can snooze it or dismiss it. To set more options for the notification, go to Settings>Notifications>Reminders. From there you can set the type of alert, if it will play a sound, if a badge app icon will indicate reminders, and more.
