I love using Microsoft To-Do to set up tasks and routines, but often the reminders do not always work. Example: I have a routine set to remind me to give my puppies their morning snack everyday at 6:45. Some mornings, I get the reminder right on time, some mornings I get the reminder 5 or 10 minutes late, and other mornings I do not get a reminder at all, even though I can look at the task set up in To-Do and clearly see the reminder turned on. This happens with other tasks as well. Is there some way to correct this so that I get my reminders when I am supposed to?

@Melkizadech I'm experiencing the same issue. I've also noticed this seems to happen most frequently with reminders for tasks which reside in other lists besides the default "Tasks" list. The same behavior happens in the both the Android and Windows 10 app.

@rdifrancesco I still have not found an answer on how to correct it, but I'm glad to know that I am not the only one experiencing this issue. Have actually stopped using To-Do for the time being and started using Samsung Reminders. I like To-Do better, but not if I can't rely on my reminders working. Hopefully someone will figure out a solution!

@MelkizadechAnother behavior I just experienced today is that I have two tasks within the same task list, each with reoccurring reminders, one at 8:30am the other at 9am. I only received the reminder for the 8:30am task. Very bizarre and frustrating as I've been missing important reminders.

@RDriver123 @Melkizadech @ShahidIqbal One potential workaround that I've been testing is to delete and recreate the task. I've done this a few times and in my limited testing it seems the reminders for the newly recreated task are triggering as expected. Makes it seem as if a bug was introduced at some point and tasks with reminders created prior to the bug no longer function reliably. Certainly not an ideal workaround.

I have the exact same issue. I stopped using Microsoft To Do, and have switched to Samsung Reminders. Google Keep and Samsung make it so easy to set a daily reminder, yet Microsoft can't seem to do it. It's such an important feature for so many people. It's enough to make you not use the app, and scratch your head.

Similar problem here -- I've been having this problem for more than a year now, but since no other app does what I need, I'm stuck with Microsoft To-Do.
I use reminders to remind me of recurrent tasks. But sometimes, the reminder of the task just gets disabled (the bell icon is crossed), randomly, and I don't get notifications for that task anymore. I have to go into the task, and reset my reminder.

@Melkizadech @leo1_loco @RollSeven @RDriver123 @ShahidIqbal I think I've stumbled on a fix for this. Log out of all instances of To-Do on all devices, then log in again. Since doing that it seems I am getting all the expected reminders, including for reoccurring tasks, on all devices. Hope this helps for others.

I have exactly the same trouble prom long time now,
that I reported in support, 2019 November 30, with a response prom Bhanujirao V,
and since that day nothing have changed...
I rewritten again to support, the 2020 February 20, with response prom Shashank89 Gandhi, that the issue is not corrected yet !!!
- 2019‑11‑30 ‒ 20H53 (UTC+0) : Microsoft To‑Do. Nô noti‑fica‑tion bug ?
Il also reported the problem in FeedBack Hub,
- https://aka.ms/AA8iru3 (more than one year ago.)
- https://aka.ms/AAcwpn4 (one week ago.)
And still same problem on Android & P.C.,
first Alarm function,
but others, next days, do not appear on Android & Windows 10,
even if Repeat is set on.
I really do not know when this will be corrected,
because he troubles my projects and help to achieve easily my tasks.
Patience, thank pro you report now I know that other have the same trouble.
Jood bye & take care.
Have a long & happy life.

@JFranz88 I understand, completely. Can I ask you what you ended up considering and what you used? I don't think the fix I listed works; I am getting random notifications on my new Android phone. I think it must be related to Android, as on my old Android phone it worked perfectly. But then again, you said you're having this issue on your iPhone, so maybe that's not correct either. Just so incredibly frustrating. To Do is part of the Office365 suite, and yet it doesn't work. It seems Microsoft just abandoned task management development, several years ago. It's awful.

@AlanGlan I still have not found an answer on how to correct it, but I'm glad to know that I am not the only one experiencing this issue. I have started using Samsung Reminders and so far it works like it is supposed to. I like To-Do better, but not if I can't rely on my reminders working.

Check if Cortana is active - when I opened Cortana and kept it open, reminders were showing properly
