In the desktop and mobile apps, an alarm can be associated with any to-do. It will be triggered at the given time by displaying a notification. How the notification will be displayed depends on the operating system since each has a different way to handle this. Please see below for the requirements for the desktop applications:
- Windows: >= 8. Make sure the Action Center is enabled on Windows. Task bar balloon for Windows < 8. Growl as fallback. Growl takes precedence over Windows balloons.
- macOS: >= 10.8 or Growl if earlier.
notify-sendtool, delivered through packages
libnotify-tools. GNOME should have this by default, but install
libnotify-toolsif using KDE Plasma.
On mobile, the alarms will be displayed using the built-in notification system.
If for any reason the notifications do not work, please open an issue.
