Reminders

Reminders is another newcomer to the world of OS X, helping us to remember important dates and tasks. You can keep as many to-do lists as you can type.

Create and edit reminders

The Reminders window is split into two parts: The left side is a listing of Lists and Reminders, and the right side (notepad) is where you enter items into the list selected on the left.

To add a new list, just click the + button at the bottom of the Reminders window (shown in Figure 8.21), or press maccmd+l, and then give it a descriptive name.

Add items to your list just by typing them on the first available line on the notepad. Notice the check box to the left of each item. Click that box when you have finished a task, and it will move to the Completed list. Should you accidentally move something to the Completed list, it’s simple to retrieve:

1. Select the Completed list on the left side of the Reminders window.

2. Find the item you accidentally marked as completed.

3. Click the box to deselect the item, and it will be moved back to its parent list.
