The first section has settings to 'Delay 20 hours from the last save of the Exercise tracker'. This ensures that the reminder will not bother you if you already exercised this morning. Delays may be specified as minutes, hours, days, weeks or months, and they may be from a specific date, or from the last save of the tracker or any specific field within it. The 'Delay:' button can alternately present a list of days of the month (e.g. 1,15,30).
After the delay criteria is satisfied (wait at least 20 hours from the last save of the Exercise tracker), the next section specifies when the reminder will trigger. In this case, Monday through Friday at 5:30 pm.
The final section allows setting the text to be displayed in the reminder notification ('Exercise start!'), and the checkbox enables or disables the reminder as desired.
Additional reminders can be created and accessed with the '<' and '+>' buttons at the top of the form. iOS allows up to 64 active reminders for each app.
A reminder is deleted by setting something that can't trigger (for example, turning off all the weekday buttons) and leaving the form.
|The 'gear' icon in the
main reminder screen enables setting the 'specific start date' above
if the reminder is not triggered from the last tracker save, as well
as optional sounds for the reminder.
