Remember: Stash distractions away
Remember is meant to be operated entirely via the keyboard. While very convenient once you’re used to it, this makes it challenging to get started. This document describes the features available in Remember and their operation.
1 Reading This Document
Because Remember is keyboard-driven, this document contains many keyboard shortcuts. Shortcuts are written using the textual representation of each key. When you see a shortcut like ⌥ ⎵, you should interpret it as holding down the Option key and pressing the Space key.
The input area is the text input in which you type reminders.
The current desktop is the desktop or screen on which the mouse cursor is currently sitting.

4 Date/time Modifiers
buy milk +30m *every 2 weeks*
4.1 Relative Modifiers
A + character followed by a positive number and an interval suffix instructs Remember to notify you after a specific amount of time. The supported intervals are:
for minutes, eg. +10m meaning 10 minutes from now
for hours, eg. +2h meaning 2 hours from now
for days, eg. +1d meaning 1 day from now
for weeks, eg. +1w meaning 1 week from now
for months, eg. +6M meaning 6 months from now
4.2 Exact Modifiers
A @ character followed by a time and an optional day of the week instructs Remember to notify you at an exact time of day. Some examples:
sets a reminder for 10am
sets a reminder for 10:30pm
the same as above, but using military time
@10am tomorrow —
sets a reminder for 10 the following day
@10am tmw —
a shorthand for the above
@8pm mon —
sets a reminder for 8pm the following Monday
buy milk @10am
4.3 Recurring Reminders
The following modifiers create recurring reminders:
*every N hours*
*every N days*
*every N weeks*
*every N months*
*every N years*
Where N is any positive number.
Recurring reminders repeat at the same time of day after some interval. Archiving a recurring reminder (⌫) resets it for the next interval.

buy milk +60m
