Markwhen.com can send you email reminders about events. If you want to get reminders for all events, specify a top-level entry in your header:
--- title: Important meetings reminders: [1 day] --- 2023-09-08: ...
Alternatively you can specify reminders on specific tags, to only receive reminders about events that have that tag:
#work: reminder: 15 minutes
In this case, you will get an email about events tagged with
#work 15 minutes before they begin.
Instead of a singular duration, you may specify a list of durations, and you will get an email for each one accordingly:
#work: reminders: - 15 minutes - 1 hour #personal: reminders: [1 day, 7 days]
You may use either
reminders for your syntax (just don't use both on one tag).
You may get even more specific with your reminders with
afterEnd that send reminder(s) before or after an event begins or ends:
#work: color: red timezone: America/New_York reminders: beforeBegin: durations: [30 minutes, 15 minutes] afterBegin: durations: - 30 minutes beforeEnd: 15 minutes afterEnd: ... Sep 8 2023 9am: Suport important meeting #work
Note that currently reminders do not work with recurring events - only the first instance of the event will trigger any applicable reminders.
Set a timezone!
When using reminders, be sure to set a timezone in your header. Reminders are set and sent based on the timezone specified in the markwhen file - if it's not set, you will not receive reminders when you expect, or at all.
