We all have the habit of forgetting things, sometimes small, and sometimes big. We all forgot something at some point in our lives, and there isn’t anything wrong about it. Humans make mistakes, but machines hardly do. That being said, we all set reminders for the most important activities in our lives so that we never forget them at the appropriate time and regret later. Now with Google Calendar, we can sync reminders across all our devices. It means we can set a reminder from our smartphone, and get reminded when we are working on the computer at the office.
We all set reminders for the most important one time activities like meetings, conferences, etc. But there are even some recurring activities, about which we can even set reminders or want to get reminded. If you forget to take your medicine daily or want to get reminded about recharging the metro card every month, you can even do that with the aid of Google Calendar. With recurring or daily reminders, you will hardly forget the particular activity, and after a point of time, it will become your habit, and you will no longer forget doing the particular activity in your life.
So let’s get started with the way to set up regular or daily reminders on Google Calendar.
The steps to follow
Step 1: Open Google Calendar and tap on the Google-colored ‘Plus’ button on the bottom right corner of the screen and hence tap on ‘Reminder’.
Step 2: Now enter the details of the reminder, which include the actual text associated with the reminder, the day from which the reminder should appear and other details. I am setting the reminder with the text ‘Ring the bells’ on 25th December 2018. Turn off ‘All-day’ to prevent getting the reminder all the time, and set the time, when you want to set the reminder. I am setting the reminder at 13 hours or 1 PM.
*Here you will have the choose the date from which you want to see the reminder.
Step 3: Now tap on ‘Does not repeat’ to select the frequency of getting the reminder. You can configure the frequency of the reminder to every day, every week, every month, every year, or you can even choose a custom frequency depending upon the type of reminder. I am choosing ‘Every day’ for the ease of explaining this tutorial.
Step 4: When you completed enter all the details, tap on ‘Done’.
Now you will get the reminder every day at the time set by you.
Step 5: Now, the next requirement is to delete the reminders after a certain date. That can also be done. You will continue getting the reminders till a certain date, and after that, the reminder won’t appear any longer.
Just tap on the date, from which you no longer want to be reminded. I am choosing 31st December 2018 for this tutorial.
*You will not be reminded on the date that you choose here. To get the reminders till that date, choose the next day/week/month, whatever it is.
Now tap on the particular reminder that you want to delete.
Step 6: In the new screen that appears, tap on the triple-dot menu and tap on ‘Delete’.
Step 7: Now the most important task. Tap on ‘This and following reminders’ followed by ‘Done’. This will delete the same reminder starting from the selected date.
The remainder will now appear on a regular basis for the period of time set by you.
Setting up repetitive or recurring reminders on Google Calendar is really a great feature that can help you carry out the most important activities without forgetting then often. You can actually set reminders of limitless repetitive and forgettable activities with the help of Google Calendar.
