Feature Request — Backup (Export) all reminders to JSON or XML


Please add a feature to backup all reminders to JSON file (or XML or any other parsable format).

Before Catalina there was a feature in Apple Reminders to export reminders to ICS format. It is gone from the app since updating to new Reminders back-end.
Also reminders data is missed from "get a copy of your data" on privacy.apple.com.
The only way I found for now is Apple Shortcuts app on iOS which get all reminders and creates zip-archive, but data retrieved from Shortcuts app misses recurring information of reminders.

In summary I want a simple button to get all my reminders in any parsable format (for emergency situation like losing access to Apple ID or critical failure of Apple Services).


Hi @Splurov, thanks for the feedback.

There has been similar feature on GoodTask but has been removed since it can't get all the data from new Reminders app's database. Didn't feel sufficient to call it as a backup. I'll keep it on the list to consider. Thanks!
