Opening up the calendar and allowing it (or forcing) to sync will do the trick, though oftentimes imperfectly. To force calendar to sync, open it up and the tap "Calendars" at the bottom, then swipe down. As far as "imperfectly" goes, I mean it doesn't seem to sync all tasks all the time. I haven't figured out what the pattern is there, but it seems that ...

In Reminders. Select Repeat Select Weekly Select Custom Select the days, e.g. Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, Friday

If you have an iPhone 4S, or newer, ask Siri to create the reminder for weekdays. She can do it.

Here's another version that allows you to set the title, end date and time via command line arguments. #!/usr/bin/env bash # Make a new reminder via terminal script ...

TLDR: Launch the Calendar app, go to Settings, Alerts, then enable "Show shared calendar messages in Notification Center" and reboot. Longer explanation follows. I was having this same problem: no badge on my iOS devices, but a badge of "1" on my Mac. After searching through the Console app, I found some messages from CalNCService that indicated it was ...

Actually, you can share a reminders list, as long as the person you want to share with has their own iCloud account. You can share one of your reminders lists either from iCloud.com or from the Reminders app in Mountain Lion. Either way, the process is the same: Hover over the name of a list for a second, and a small icon will appear. Click on it, then type ...

osascript - title <<END on run a tell app "Reminders" tell list "Reminders" of default account make new reminder with properties {name:item 1 of a} end end end END You could also create an Automator workflow with just an empty New Reminders Item action and then run it with automator -i title test.workflow.

I found that adding a dummy item in a list on my iPhone initiates a sync, i.e. it fetches changes from other devices. Similarly, adding items in my iPhone updates my iMac and iPad instantly. The issue seem to be the iPhone not initiating sync without local changes on the iPhone. Note that on your iPhone, sync will not happen until after you press Done (or ...

Add Calendar event for weekdays only by selecting Every Week, then Custom, which will then allow you to click which days of the week you want. Once select, M-F, it will confirm you selected every weekday. It will then show up as Custom on your Calendar event.

There are two fairly easy ways to do this: Option 1 (default): With the default configuration of your mac, you can simply option + click the notification center icon in the top right corner of your screen. This will enable Do Not Disturb, which automatically dismisses all notifications and silences incoming notifications. If you wish to continue receiving ...

Those notifications are managed by the Notification Center App Extension inside of Reminders.app: /Applications/Reminders.app/Contents/PlugIns/com.apple.RemindersNC.appex and displayed by Notification Center. Sadly none of the information used to create the window is editable by the user. Interestingly, there were more options when this feature was ...

This bugs me too. It isn't possible to do in Reminders, but you can achieve the same thing by creating a repeating event in Calendar, which has a "custom..." item in the Repeat menu: Then you can specify exactly when to repeat the event: It seems like an oversight that Reminders doesn't have the same feature (it would be just as useful), especially since ...

In OSX, go to Completed in Reminders, Click on the first one in the list, shift click on the last one, go to Edit menu and then Delete.

Your home and work geo-location are picked up from your contacts card in the Contacts app (on iOS devices). To manage where your home or work is, edit the relevant addresses in the Contacts app, under 'add new address'. You can also edit other peoples addresses, add shops, the gym, clubs, etc, and it will use this data.

I found out you can accomplish this with BusyCal, which has iCloud support. Unfortunately it comes with a $49.99 pricetag, which I am hesitant to pay for the sole purpose of adding custom intervals to reminders. I also prefer not to install a 3rd application in addition to Calendar and Reminders just for managing my tasks. That's why I did some digging and ...

Found it! Add "list name" reminder "new item" on "date and time" Example: "Add activities reminder basketball practice on friday at 2pm." Odd and slightly backwards syntax but works!

Open Date and Time Preferences. Move to the Clock tab, and check Announce the time. To customize the voice, click Customize Voice. Choose one on the list, or click Customize for a larger list.

The only way to create custom reminder time is by Siri. I managed to created an event to remind me every 3 days. I haven't figure out how to create one on weekdays only. In the mean time, I just create an alarm as above post suggested.


5

How about creating a reminder on monday, tuesday, wednesday, thursday, and friday, with each one repeating weekly? You'll have to make five edits instead of just one whenever something changes, but maybe the event details won't change enough and this workaround will suffice.

Since Brant Bobby posted his answer (which was great) the iCloud.com site has changed and you can no longer create shared Reminders lists, but this is expected to return in OS X 10.8.2 & iOS 6. It looks like as of 2012-10-15 the ability to share Reminders has been added back to the iCloud web app.

No. With iCloud and its supporting operating systems (iOS 5 and OS X 10.7.2), Apple has split the calendar stores on its online CalDAV servers to be either event-only, or task-only. Reminders sync to task-only calendars. See this Apple Support article for some details.

This is a problem os-wide in iOS, for other apps too, like calendars. Once you have received your alarm notification, whether for a reminder, or a calendar alert etc, you're done. There's no way to "snooze" or "remind me later" for these functions. The only way to get this functionality at present, is to use a replacement app. One such app is Due, the ...

You don't have precise range control over geo fenced reminders with non iBeacon input. Both GPS and WiFi and cell tower location can trigger locations a good block or more away from a precise location. Until you have iBeacon hardware or software set up, you can snooze that reminder, set a follow on time based reminder or change the original reminder to go ...

You were on the right lines, but the wrong location… System sounds are in /System/Library/Sounds/ it's only user sounds in ~/Library/Sounds Replace the Basso.aiff in there with your custom version [bearing in mind this will replace Basso in any other system alert that uses it too] It will be the same for Calendar alerts - except there you can define ...

It's simply that anyone can send an email to you. If spam rules don't block it, Apple software (with default settings) processes the invitation before you can take any action. To prevent this automatic processing, try this. Log in to iCloud on the web, open your calendar and go to ⚙ > Preferences (in the lower left corner). Under Advanced tab you’ll find ...

The reminders on your iOS 5 device get synced automatically thorugh iCloud with the reminders in iCal.

The other user (@Paul) is incorrect! Create a list that you want to share using your iCloud account. On your Mac, click "Reminders" to the side of the calendar view in iCal. Right-click on the calendar you want to share, then click "Share Reminder List..." On the menu that appears, select "Only the people you invite" and click Ok. Easy and effective!

I am assuming that you are using the website for this. Go to iCloud, and open the Calendar app. Click on the gear at the top-left, then click preferences. Go to the advanced tab, and check "Enable time zone support". Now, when you edit an event, you can select the time zone in the event information.

This is not possible, nor was it possible with Mobile Me. Particularly irritating when a number of people share an iPad and don't want to enable full email for each other for example. I'm afraid there is no way around it, unless perhaps you can download a different browser from the App Store that will enable you to change your user agent string to trick ...
