UPDATE 2019/04/11 My old accounts doesn't show anymore the switch to Remainders option but accounts created this year, consumer and G Suite accounts show both, Reminders and Task Calendars. I didn't searched yet for an official help article or post about this, but if you can't wait, look at the G Suite Update alert blog, the Google Calendar Help Center and ...

This is the expected behavior per the Google Help Article "Create & change reminders in Google Calendar" which states the following: You'll only get notifications for reminders that are scheduled for a specific time. If you created an all-day reminder, you won't get a notification for it.

Click on the drop down arrow next to Reminders in your calendar list. There should be an option to switch back to Google Tasks.

This may not be possible, because the "Reminders" feature in Google Calendar isn't actually a calendar (even though it appears in the calendar list). It belongs to its own separate "Reminders" part of your Google Profile, which does not have an API. Some Background: Google originally created the Reminders feature for the Google Now mobile app, back in 2013. ...

On the Google Calendar website, on the left side, click the drop down arrow next to Google Tasks. There should be an option to switch to reminders.

The accepted answer might still work (for me it didn't, for others it did), Google may have changed the settings menu since then. An alternative route in case the above doesn't work is the following: first, choose a calendar from the left panel, and click on the three dots to choose "Settings and sharing". Then, under "Event notifications" and "All-day ...

For Inbox Reminders, I found a way to at least export their urls to a readable plain text list, using the javascript console. I've used the snippet below: Array.prototype.slice.call(document.getElementsByClassName('bV dj')).map(function(i){ return decodeURIComponent(i.href.replace(/^.*url\?q=([^&]*)&.*$/,'$1')) }) Which prints a comma-separated ...

I think IFTTT can do what you're looking for. You'll need 2 Applets and a Gmail account which will serve as your "filter" to only create the "pick up" event when it has a kid's name in it. The first Applet will use the Google Calendar trigger "Any new event added" and will perform the Gmail action "send an email". You'...

At this time the Google Apps (Calendar, Gmail, Keep, Now ) don't have either a user interfaces' command or API's class for the new reminders to convert a Google task to a Google reminder. An alternative could be the use of a user script1 that use the Google Tasks API or Google Apps Script. Notes: 1 A user script is a code snippet that changes the look ...

The latest version of Google Calendar Android app shows all your reminders from Google Now and Keep as well. (Google Support) For your second question, you could create a checklist/tasklist on Keep and share it with your friends or family. (Google Support)

Unfortunately no. You have to set times instead of "all day" to see the individual reminders.

Okay, I found a workaround. It is not perfect, but unless someone has a better way, it might be helpful for others. In Google Calendar settings you can choose to be reminded with browser notifications instead of interruptive alerts. You must, however, allow notifications if you have already blocked them, for the page in Chrome (if you are using it, by ...

There's a "tasks" feature in Gmail, in my case on the right side of the page in a vertical bar. If you open it up and click the three-dot menu to the right of "add task", you're presented with the opportunity to "copy all reminders to tasks".

The Birthdays calendar is a special calendar. As you saw it doesn't include the several setting options like notifications. If you want to get a Birthday notification, then copy the event to one of the calendars create by you and set the notifications on that calendar or for that specific event.

Create Tasks instead of Reminders because Tasks CAN be backdated Note to potential users: (As the OP found out and mentions in his comment). "I started using Tasks on the desktop web app and thought it was pretty cool. Was subsequently disappointed to find that it isn't integrated into the Calendar app on Android. A separate app to manage Tasks is fine ...

All of these options are definitely worth trying. What worked for me is to actually just have Google Calendars open in a tab. Having it open while on mail.google.com is not enough.

I think there is some issue with your browser's setting. From Calendar Help: Didn’t get a notification First, make sure notifications are turned on for your calendar using the steps Turn notifications on or off. Check that you’ve chosen to show notifications in your browser’s permission settings. If not, turn on desktop notifications. ...

Reminders show up as a calendar, so it must be checked to see them. Now when clicking create event the option comes up to choose event or reminder. I hope that helps this worked as of 10/9/2020.

RRULE:FREQ=MONTHLY;BYDAY=MO;BYMONTHDAY=-5,-6,-7,-8,-9,-10,-11 this should work

As shown above, Chrome can show the reminders. Apparently though, you can either show Tasks or Reminders...but not both.

AFAIK this is not possible in Google Calendar. A possible workaround might be to create the reminder for the 14th, which would catch all Friday-situations (if I understand correctly, you would want a notification on Thursday if the 15th is a Friday, and one on Sunday if the 15th falls on a Saturday). This would always give you a notification on-time, even ...

Based on Inbox to Gmail transition guide, Reminders can be accessed and set via other Google apps (mostly by Google Calendar) so you shouldn't lose any of your Reminders after Inbox gets discontinued. Anyway, to back up your Reminders you can always use Google Takeout: And here are few guides on how to deal with Reminders in Gmail: https://www.reddit.com/...

It appears to be a per calendar setting now. Click the action menu (three vertical dots) next to your calendar name in the left side bar OR go to Settings then click the calendar you want to change Go to Event notifications Change your default notification times Unfortunately, it doesn't appear to be something you can change globally. A bit of a bummer for ...

Updated answer Feb 2021. (for Google calendar on a desktop computer or laptop) Go "My calendars" in the left panel Hover over the calendar you want to update and click the three dots Click "Settings and sharing" Scroll down to "Event notifications" Add the default notification type and duration There you go! Make sure to do it ...

Right now, there is no way to natively customize the notification in calendar without using Apps Script. Sending the Daily Agenda might be the closest to what you want. In the calendar with the events, click on the drop down arrow and select "Edit notifications (or, go to that calendar's settings and click on the Edit notifications tab at the top). Scroll ...
