Reminders/Notifications in Obsidian

+1 It’s one of the (for me) core functions

I would also like a reminder in the morning and evening to remember to open Obsidian for my journal entries.

It’s not a complicated thing

I wish that were true. Calendaring and time systems are some of the most difficult tasks to get right.

Made an account just to +1 this. I think the reason this seems / should be easy to add is just that the support for the app to generate a notification wouldn’t be too hard to add. Then you could let plugins (like the reminder plugin) do the hard part of reminders and calendars and just hook into the notifications on Android for ex.

Yes, a good idea.

This feature is foundational. It will be great if the team consider/prioritize this feature. Thanks!

+1. I agree. This would make Obsidian even more powerful and flexible.

PLS PLS Implement!!

This would be game changer. Would certainly pay for subscription if calendar and reminders is implemented

This is an absolute must have for second brain approach.
Otherwise, it forces users to use other apps for recurring notes/reminder use.

I’m adding my vote for this feature, Obsidian is one of my core applications and it would be great if I can have notifications in my workflow, I’m using reminder plugin, but at least in Windows 11 is not working when setting system notifications, without this feature it’s very usefull, but a lot of time I’m doing something else and I miss them

I use Linux and Android. Why are there still no notifications from Obsidian?!?!?

Yes! This feature would absolutely be a game-changer for Obsidian. It’s the only reason I can’t commit 100% to Obsidian as my only task manager. I hate being split between Obsidian and Google Cal. I would be okay with email notifications or iOS notifications (using the Obsidian iOS app).

Push notifications on mobile seem to require firebase setup, maybe this is one of the reasons devs are weary implementing this feature?

I’m not sure I understand that well, does that mean all the notifications I get (on my Android) must go on Google’s Servers?
