Setting reminders can be key in order to stay on top of various tasks.  It’s only human to forget things here and there, which is why Priority Matrix offers the option to set reminders for your tasks.  Not only are you able to set a reminder for yourself, but you can also remind other members as well.

Setting a Reminder:


Manually- Available on Mac and iOS only:

  1. Select the project, and chose the task within
  2. Go over to the right side panel and chose the reminder icon
  3. Set a reminder for the date and time you want
  4. You can decide if you want to remind just yourself, or all the followers of the task

Using the conversation- Available on all platforms:

The conversation view is a convenient way to talk to your collaborators about specific items. But did you know that you can also talk to Priority Matrix? Yes, you can! Conveniently, you can also use it to set reminders for a given item, and the possibilities are endless. Here are some options that are available right now:

  • Remind me at 7am on June 10: This tells PM to send you a reminder (via email or through the apps) at the given time
  • Remind everybody on June 10: This reminder applies to every follower of the item, no matter how many
  • Remind Sally at 9pm: If Sally is a follower for the item, she will get a reminder tonight
  • Remind me in 2 hours: For when you don’t have time to do something now, but you will have a break in a little bit
  • Remind Tony tomorrow morning: That’s right, the system understand “tomorrow morning” and turns that into a specific time
  • Remind me weekly starting tomorrow morning: Repeating reminders! You can have daily, weekly, biweekly and annual reminders
  • Stop reminders: This should be self explanatory…

How cool is that? Do you like what you see? Are there any other options that you’d like to see?

NOTE: On a Windows, the only way to set a reminder is through the commands in the conversation box, there is no manual entry option.  On a Mac, you can manually enter a reminder, or use the conversation box commands.
