What I did:
- Create a checklist item and
- View the task in Reminders and reschedule it to 31 or more days in the future
What happened: Agenda shows the deleted reminder icon ()
What I expected: Agenda shows the normal incomplete reminder icon ()
I suppose I’ve learned something new about Agenda’s performance decisions, which is that it only syncs reminders that are scheduled within the next 30 days. This explains why some of my reminders appear to go missing from within Agenda.
Anyway, I feel this is a bug – Agenda is reporting that the reminder no longer exists, when it clearly does. Of course, I’ve disagreed with Agenda’s opinion on whether a reminder exists before
I’ve just never seen anything documented that says “a reminder icon means that the reminder exists on a list that agenda syncs and is due within the next 30 days.” My understanding of the “reminder missing” icon is that Agenda can no longer find the reminder in Reminders, not that it’s been a) moved off a list that Agenda syncs (fine) b) changed to an undated reminder (I disagree with Agenda opinion, but fine I guess) or c) scheduled more than 30 days out (I really disagree with Agenda opinion here and don’t see how it makes sense)
Bottom line: I don’t think Agenda should be lying to me about whether a Reminder exists.
Edit: Well now I’m just confused as to the rule. I created a reminder for (2/25) and Agenda tracks it fine. The last reschedule date where it shows as available is 3/12 - if I set it to 3/13 from within Reminders then it goes gray. So I have no idea how Agenda is deciding whether the reminder still exists or not.
