How to Schedule a Reminder on Your iPad

One of the major purposes of the Reminders app on your iPad is to remind you of upcoming tasks. To set a reminder, tap a task and then tap the Details button that appears to the right of the task.

  1. In the Details dialog that appears, tap Remind Me on a Day to turn the feature on.

  2. Tap the Alarm field that appears below this setting. The settings shown in the figure appear.


  3. Tap and flick the day, hour, and minutes fields to scroll to the date and time for the reminder.

  4. Tap Done to save the settings for the reminder.

If you want a task to repeat with associated reminders, tap the Repeat field in the Details dialog, and in the dialog that appears, tap Every Day, Week, 2 Weeks, Month, or Year (so you remember those annual meetings — or remember to buy your partner an anniversary gift). Tap Done to save the setting.

To stop the task from repeating, tap End Repeat in the Details dialog, tap End Repeat Date, and select a date from the scrolling calendar.

You can scroll the monthly calendar display to show months in the past or future by tapping the forward or backward arrows, and then tapping any date to show its tasks in the daily list on the right.
