Reminder functionality overview

The Reminder app allows regular Jira user to set their own reminders from any JIRA issue. Reminder is the email with link to the issue to be automatically sent to Jira users or groups of users (according to the Reminder app settings) at the specified time and with specified message.

Reminder creation

You can create as many reminders as you'd like to for any issue you have access to.

You can create a reminder "from scratch" by clicking the Reminder button.

There are also several predefined options available to create quick reminders without messages:

  • Tonight
  • Tomorrow
  • In a week
  • In month

The Tonight and Tomorrow options should be configured in the My Reminders section. The In a week option means +7 days to the current date and time, the In month option is the same date the next month. The email will be sent the same time as the reminder was created.

To create a new reminder click on Reminder button at the right panel of issue card and specify the following information:

  • Who – the list of users the reminder should be sent to. If you we granted with rights to create group reminders (check the Admin Guide) you'll be able to select not only users but also user groups in this field.
  • When – date and time for the reminder to be sent.
  • Period – periodicity of the reminder sending. The following options are available: OnceEvery dayEvery weekEvery month (from the first sending time). You can specify the end date for the periodical reminders.
