Location Reminders

What is it?

Any.do’s Location Reminders are a simple and easy way to stay on top of your tasks as you go through your day. By setting a location reminder such as ‘pick up flowers’ and choosing the location of your favorite flower shop you will get notified as soon as you’re in close proximity to execute that item. 

Who has access?

  • The feature is available to Premium users only
  • The feature is available on iOS and Android.

How does it work?

  • You can add a location reminder to any of the items in your standard lists (excluding Smart Grocery Lists).
  • Location reminders can be set for ‘arrival’ or ‘departure’ and you can save your favorite places for quick setup.
  • You can even add “Favorite Locations” so that you can add them to any task quickly and easily.
