Reminder and Privacy Settings
For any of Drafts reminders and events integration features to work, you must allow Drafts access to Calendars and Reminders in the iOS Settings app, under Privacy. The first time Drafts attempts to access calendars and reminders, you will be prompted to allow access – but if you say no, you will need to go to iOS Settings to enable those features later.
Drafts can import reminders from a list named “Drafts” in the iOS Reminders app. If you enable this feature, when drafts is launched, it will look for a list named “Drafts” in the Reminders app, and create drafts using the title and note content of any incomplete tasks in that list. After successful import, it will mark those tasks as complete to prevent duplicate imports.
Using this feature, you can create drafts using Siri – or via the Mac OS X Reminders app (if you use iCloud to store reminders). With Siri, use the phrase “Add to my Drafts list” and Siri will recognize that your want to create a reminder in this list.
Drafts has two actions that can send content from Drafts to the iOS Reminders app.
- Reminders: This action will create a single reminder in the iOS Reminders app using the content of the current draft. The reminder will be added to your default reminders list. This action can be configured in Settings > Manage Actions to use the first list of the draft as a title, in which case the first line will become the reminder title, and any remaining text will be in the reminder note.
- List in Reminders: This action will take the lines in a draft, divide them up into separate reminders and export them to the Reminders app. You can also start the first line of the draft with a special character (#, @ or !) to indicate a specific list name for the reminders. If you do not specify a list name, the reminders will be added to your default list. If you specify a list name and the list already exists, the new tasks will be added to the list, if it does not exist, the list will be created.
