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 ...

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 ...

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. See also this post at Mac OS X Hints.

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.

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 ...

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.

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 ...

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.


7

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 ...

The fix to this problem is due to the fact that the reminders list that it was attempting to add to (... which is the one that was configured in iOS as the "Default reminders list") was a very old and very full list. It was not super full of un-completed reminders, but the number of past COMPLETED reminders was over 8,000. So, to fix the slowness, I ...

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 ...

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 ...

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!

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.

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 ...

Tap the item Select "Show more..." Tap "List" Select the list where to move the item.

I've created a service called Tasket which Syncs iOS Reminders with Gmail Tasks. I do this by emulating a Microsoft Exchange server - iOS supports syncing Reminders with Exchange. Tasket is currently in beta. I'm just waiting on Google to increase their API quota so I can add more users. Hopefully people find it helpful. I like the native Reminders app.

The only unremovable Dock icon is the Finder, removing anything else should result in it staying removed. There is nothing special about Reminders and Notes, and it's always annoyed me that they put in icons for things like launchpad etc when they have system wide keystrokes or gestures for the same task. One point to bear in mind tho, is that to prevent ...

Quoting a solution I found in the Apple community web site: I was having this problem. I changed the syncing range on the phone (under Settings > Reminders) to sync All Reminders. I then logged into iCloud and opened the Reminders tab. This actually caused the reminders on the phone to match the ones in iCloud. I then made changes on my phone while that ...

There is an app called Reminder For iCloud on Google Play, which I believe can meet your need. It can sync reminders of iCloud.

I started to do the same as mentioned above -removing all location-based reminders including completed ones... (had to go directly to iCloud.com) As I was going through, I found one that had "location: null", deleted it (or just removed the location part of it) and then, before deleting any more, tried my reminder app on my Mac computer (running Mavericks ...

When you get to the view where you can see the map and have selected When I Leave you can pinch and zoom to set the radius of where the notification will be triggered.
