Learn how to control your app notifications

Updated this week

Being a productivity app, Any.do uses device notifications in order to alert users regarding any upcoming action items, events, daily planning and more. Using your device’s notifications, ensures you stay up to date with your ongoing items and never lose sight of your intentions.

Availability:

The following user-types can take advantage of this feature:

  • Personal users (free).

  • Premium users.

  • Family users.

  • Teams users.

The feature is available on both our mobile and web/desktop apps (functionality-based, see below).


🛠️​ How does it work?

  • In order to receive notifications, Any.do requires your device/ browser permissions.

  • For Android devices, it also requires access to background activity and the disablement of any restricting battery saving apps.

  • To receive task notifications, simply make sure to add a reminder via the Task Menu.

  • The Daily Planner also provides daily reminders which can be turned off/ on from its setting.

  • For event notifications, simply enable the option from your account’s Settings.

  • To take a break from receiving Any.do’s reminders, you can easily turn them off under each task.

  • You may also opt to completely disable Any.do’s notifications from the app’s Settings screen.
