In our iOS app, it is possible to receive audible alarms when a task is due. Toodledo must be installed on your iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch, but it does not need to be running for this to work. There are two different ways to receive reminders on your iOS device. You can have the alarms come from the device or come from the website using Apple's Remote Push Notification network. Some older devices may not have access to device based alarms.Device based alarms
This is the recommended setting because it is the more reliable. This device will be responsible for setting and triggering alarms. You do not need to sync with Toodledo.com for this option to work, but if you are syncing, then the task must be on the device for its alarm to be triggered. To select this option, go into the "Alarms" settings section inside our app and choose "Task alarms come from device".Remote Alarms
The remote notifications will be sent from Toodledo.com directly to your iOS device at the appropriate time. Keep in mind that the task must be synced to our website for this to work. Also, your device must have a network connection at the time of the reminder. Toodledo will also update your application badge several times a day so you'll know how many tasks are remaining.
To get remote notifications follow these steps:
- Launch Toodledo on your device.
- If it isn't already setup, configure synchronization.
- Your device may already be setup for device based notifications. To switch to remote notifications, go into the "Date Alarms" setting section and make the switch.
- When it asks about remote notifications, click "Allow". You may need to quit and relaunch Toodledo on the device before it will ask you. If the device doesn't ask you, or if you tapped the wrong button by accident, go to the "Notification Center" section of Apple's general "Settings" app and make sure that Notifications are enabled globally and for Toodledo.
- Go to Toodledo.com and click on the "Tools" menu at the top of the screen. Click on "Reminders/Alarms".
- Confirm that "iOS" is selected as one of your reminder slots.
If you cannot get past step 4 above, then this means that your device is not able to properly register for Push Notifications. This could be because your device was unofficially activated (jailbroken, unlocked to run on an unauthorized carrier), or that your carrier doesn't support Push Notifications.Setting Alarms
Once you complete these steps, any task that has a due-date AND an alarm set will receive an alert. To set an alarm for a task:
- On the website: Click the "Alarm" checkbox above the due-date calendar.
- On iOS: Edit the "Alarm" field for a task and set a value. Be sure to sync the task back to Toodledo.com, so that the website knows to send you a reminder.
You can further customize the alarm time by setting a due-time. For more info about alarms/reminders, please read our alarm help topic.
Due to delays in various parts of the system, reminders may arrive plus or minus 5 minutes from the actual reminder time. If your cell phone company does not support push notifications, they will never arrive and there is no way for us to detect that they didn't. You'll need to confirm with your carrier that they support push notifications.
If you no longer want to receive remote notifications, you can adjust your settings in Apple's "Settings" app on the device under "Notifications".
