Set Up Reminders With Google Keep

Google Keep is Google’s cross-platform note keeping app that is an electronic version of sticky notes. If you don’t use Google Keep, you are missing out on a great application. It is one of the most used apps on my computer and smartphone.

One feature I personally use (especially on my smartphone) is the reminder feature built into Google Keep. After I create a note and set the reminder (see steps below), the reminder will pop up in the notification section of my phone when the reminder comes due. I have a note called “Reminders” that I have configured to pop up every day at 8AM to jostle me in completing various tasks.

You can set a reminder from your phone (Android and iOS), but the easiest way is from your computer.

How To set up reminders for your notes:

Go to keep.google.com.

Click a note.

At the bottom left, click Remind me Remind me.

You can set reminders to go off at a certain time or place:

Time reminder: Click one of the default times, or click Pick a date & time Pick a date and time. You can also set the reminder to repeat.

Location reminder: Click Pick place Pick a place. Then enter the name or address and click Done Done. You’ll need to let Keep access your location.

Click Save.

To close your note, click Done or click outside the note.

To change your reminder, click the reminder time or place at the bottom of the note.

Tip: To delete a reminder, in the bottom right, click Delete reminder Delete reminder.

View upcoming reminders:

Go to keep.google.com or open the Keep app.

At the top left of Keep, tap or click Menu Menu > Reminders.

You’ll see all notes with upcoming reminders.

Change default reminder times

You can change the pre-set reminder times for morning, afternoon, and evening. Learn how to change your default reminder times.

You do need a Google account in order to use Google Keep. As I indicated, Google Keep is a cross platform application and will run from your computer, Android smartphone and iOS smarphone. Once installed on your computer and other devices, the notes are kept in sync.
