is it possible to move a reminder from one reminders list to another?

For example I have two lists:

  1. Today
  2. Tomorrow

How could I move for example "call cindy" from "Tomorrow" to "Today"?


Select the entry, right click, go to the "Move to List" menu entry, select the destination list you want. (Or drag and drop.)

When I first tried this the difficult part was selecting the item rather than editing it...I needed to be sure to click white space off to the right of the title.

  • Great answer, I guess this isn't possible on iOS?

    Sort of.... Tap a reminder and it brings up a dialog with a "Show More..." item. Tap that and you can choose a list for that reminder. (I'm on an iPad...don't know if it's similar for smaller devices.) Aug 5 '12 at 18:05
  • @PhillipMills I can confirm that it's the same on my iPhone.

I foolishly tried dragging and dropping 5 items from one iCloud account to another.

Both lists bear the same title as shown in the Reminders app. Maybe that's why 4 items were deleted instead of moved.

Any way to restore the lost items from a Time Machine backup? I can't seem to find a .plist for Reminders in my Library.


The app should automatically transfer items from the 'Tomorrow' list to the 'Today' list at midnight.

It seems bogus that it doesn't.
