Set and manage Google Reminders

Google’s overarching workplace suite, Google Workspace, contains many tools to help you increase your productivity and manage your business. This includes Google Reminders, a tool within the Google Calendar. Combined with Gmail, Google Docs, and other essential Google products, you’ll be more efficient than ever.

Google Reminders is intuitive to use. With advanced predictive autocomplete, setting reminders has never been easier. In this article, we’ll explain how to set up and manage Google Reminders.

Create reminders in the web app

Google Reminders can be set in Google Calendar on the web. These are synced between the web and mobile apps (if you’re using the same account), so any changes you make to either one will be reflected in the other.

To add a Google reminder to Google Calendar on the web:

  1. Open google calendar in your web browser and log in if you are not already.
  2. On the calendar, click the date and time you want to set a reminder.
  1. In the pop-up window, select Reminder
  1. Set your date, specific time, title and whether you want to repeat the reminder.
  1. Touch Save

Remark: Google has several other tools to help you get the most out of its Reminders tool. Google Keep lets you take notes (such as shopping lists) and set reminders right from the app. Google Tasks, on the other hand, helps you keep track of daily tasks and organize deadlines with reminders. These two apps have a lot of crossover functionality, so view our guide help decide which is better.
