Having issues with adding or receiving reminders? Checkout the details below for quick and easy troubleshooting. 


How do I add a reminder?

Adding a reminder is quick and easy and ca be done directly from the Task Menu. To view step by step instructions, check out this article.


I can’t add recurring reminders

If you’re unable to add a recurring reminder, make sure that your task does not already have a one-time or location reminder associated with it. If it does, simply delete it and then create the recurring reminder per the steps provided in this article. If you’re still experiencing issues, please reach out to our Support Team, here.


I want to change my reminder sound

No problem! Any.do offers several reminder sounds for you to choose from on the mobile apps. To learn how to change the sound, see here.


I’m not getting reminders

First, make sure that your reminders are toggled ‘ON’ and set properly per the instructions on this page. If they are toggled ‘ON’ and you’re still not receiving them, make sure you provided Any.do with access to your device’s notifications settings as explained in our permissions page. Android users should check the settings in the question below.


My Android reminders stopped working

As long as you’ve turned your reminders ON and have your device open and app synced, you should be seeing reminders in their designated time. However, certain cleaning apps – like Clean Master, 360 Security, CM security, Fast Booster and similar – might be interfering with the app’s proper function. While cleaning your device, these apps stop Any.do from sending you reminders to minimize data consumption. In order to fix this and make sure you’re able to receive Any.do’s reminder, please follow the steps below:

1. Go to your device settings

2. Tap on ‘Accessibility’

3. Under ‘Services’ turn off the cleaning app

4. Please restart your device (switch it off and back on)

5. Enter your Any.do app

You may also choose to remove Any.do from your Power Saving list, which will ensure that the app remains active in the background. To do this, please see the instructions below.

I’m not getting the Android pop-up

Due to Android Q limitations, the Any.do pop up feature no longer turns on automatically. An option to turn it on is presented to users upon entering their account, though it can also be enabled manually via the device setting at any point in time. In order to see the Any.do pop-ups, which allow snoozing tasks, completing items, starting Focus Mode or dismissing items, go to your device Settings => Apps => Any.do and enable ‘show on top’.


I can’t get my location reminders to work

For the location reminders to work, the app must be enabled to work at the background at all times (not just when using the app). Also, make sure your GPS/ Location settings are fully enabled and that Any.do is allowed to access your location settings (under device Settings – Apps – Any.do – Permissions). For more information, check out Location Reminders. For further assistance, reach out to our team.
