Yes. Daycast will remind you of your clock-in status at the interval of your choosing if you enable Status Reminders. To do that, click the vertical ellipsis in the upper right corner and choose Settings from the dropdown menu.
In the Status Reminders section at the top, first check the box, then set your reminder frequency and select the days of the week you’d like to receive reminders.
Once you’ve enabled this feature, you’ll see notifications when you’re either A) clocked into a task for the duration of the time frequency you selected (e.g. thirty minutes), or B) clocked out of all tasks for the duration of the time frequency you selected. If you set your reminders for sixty minutes, but you change tasks more frequently than that, you won’t see a reminder. If you set them for thirty minutes and then work on the same task for thirty minutes (not clocking out of it at all), you should see a reminder notification.
If you believe your status reminders aren’t working, try setting them to one minute then clock into a task and stay clocked in for one full minute to see if you get a notification. If you still don’t see your reminders, scroll down or click here for troubleshooting information.
Time-specific Task Reminders are enabled by default in Daycast. To trigger this feature, use the 'at' symbol to specify a time in your task description, e.g. “@12:30pm call w/Jan” or “Review @9am.” You’ll receive a reminder alert five minutes prior to the time specified in your task description.
To disable this feature, click the vertical ellipsis in the upper right corner and choose Settings from the dropdown menu.
Scroll down to the Task Reminders section and uncheck the box.
If you’ve enabled one or more of these options but aren’t seeing them, it may be that Daycast notifications are disabled in your system settings. Follow these instructions to enable them for macOS and these instructions to enable them for Windows.
Windows 10 users who’ve enabled notifications both in Daycast and system settings but still don’t see reminders may have Focus Assist (formerly Quiet Hours) enabled, which is a do-not-disturb mode that blocks notifications. See this short video explanation of the Focus Assist features and how to access them. Windows 10 users who wish to enable Focus Assist while still receiving reminder notifications from Daycast may do so by choosing Priority only notifications in Focus Assist settings then customizing their priority list to include Daycast.
If you’ve taken the above steps and still aren’t seeing your notifications as expected, please email us at email@example.com.
Daycast helps busy professionals manage their time and protect their focus so they can do more of what matters with less stress.
