Missed notifications appear when I open the app

Some manufacturers terminate background apps to conserve battery. Please visit dontkillmyapp.com for help disabling your manufacturer's battery restrictions

Notifications are late (Android 6+)

Android can delay notifications to conserve battery while your device is idle. To prevent Android from delaying Tasks' notifications:

  1. Tap on ☰ > Settings > Notifications > Disable battery optimizations
  2. Tap on the dropdown and select "All apps"
  3. Tap on "Tasks" and select "Don't optimize"

I disabled battery optimizations and notifications are still late

Please visit dontkillmyapp.com and make sure you have disabled your manufacturer's battery restrictions

Notifications only appear while the app is open

Please visit dontkillmyapp.com and make sure you have disabled your manufacturer's battery restrictions

Notifications are silent or do not appear at all (Android 8+)

It is easy to inadvertently silence or disable reminders from the notification shade. To check your settings tap on ☰ > Settings > Notifications > More settings. Make sure Notifications are toggled on, then tap on Notifications to configure your ringtone, vibration, and priority
