Drafts can import reminders from a list in the iOS Reminders app. If you enable this feature, when drafts is launched, it will look for a list 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.
The default list to import from is "Drafts", but the list name you wish to import from can be changed in settings.
Creating Drafts from a Mac
If you are using iCloud sync for Reminders, you can add to the "Drafts" reminder list in the Reminders app on OS X. The reminders will sync to your iOS devices, then be imported into Drafts the next time it launches on your iPhone or iPad if you have enabled the "Import reminders" feature.
This is also really handy with apps, such as quick launchers like Launchbar or Alfred, that can quickly create reminders in particular lists.
Creating Drafts with Siri
Using the import reminders feature, you can create drafts using Siri. With Siri, use the phrase “Add to my Drafts list” and Siri will recognize that you want to create a reminder in this list. If you complete creation of the Reminder and confirm, the next time you launch Drafts, the reminder will be created. This works great from Siri on Apple Watch as well.
Drafts has two actions that can also create individual reminders, or full lists of reminders in very flexible ways. For information on export to reminders read about the Reminders and List in Reminders action steps.
Reminder and Privacy Settings
For any of Drafts reminders and events integration features to work, you must allow Drafts access to Calendars and Reminders.
The first time you attempt to use any Reminders-related features in Drafts, you will be asked for permission. If you "Don't Allow" and later want to enable access, visit the iOS Settings app, under Privacy to enable Drafts access.
