If task reminders are turned off or sent via email, ignore this question.

If task reminders are sent via TXT or IM, there are several possible reasons:

  1. You probably didn’t look over the task reminders and dismiss them all yet. You should do this once each morning. These reminders are only advisory.
  2. You may be setting different reminder times to schedule the tasks into your day. Don’t do this. All task reminders should appear at the start of your day. If a task must happen at a certain time of day, schedule an appointment in your calendar.
  3. If none of the above apply, you may be looking at a reminder list on a second computer or handheld. These task reminders are usually duplicates. Delete or mark them as read, being careful to not dismiss appointment reminders until the appointment has been honored.
