Reminders and Alarms

Postby cacofonix1 » Thu Aug 02, 2012 3:22 pm

I strongly feel that CintaNotes incorporate reminders and alarms into the notes since one can take down notes but if one is not reminded about taking action at a future date, all the note taking is wasted. In the quest for this functionality I came across Note Thing that while not as advanced as CintaNotes (especially tags which are very important to me), does incorporate Reminders and unlimited file attachments per note. I would urge the users to review this functionality and vote for it in the Roadmap http://roadmap.cintanotes.com/topic/3199-alarms-reminders-in-notes/ and for the developers to move this functionality up in the priorities.

I agree that this is a necessary feature.
For everyone who needs it, please take note of one workaround that has been contributed by Mike Abbott:
One workaround for this I have tried has been to use the properties to manually set a "Modified Date" in the future.
I then order the notes by decending Modified Date and all the things I have to do are at the top of the list.
Reminders will be better with things like alarms and SMS etc being nice to have but for now this is working for me.
