Like many others, I have tried many task managers and just bought GoodTask for IOS yesterday and so far I'm very pleased.
I am having a few issues that I could use help with.
gear - iPhone 8 - iPad both ios 13.3 - macbook mojave 10.14.6
Note - I deliberately did not upgrade Apple reminders on IOS since it said that it would not sync with Mohave.
Notification settings on both ios devices set GoodTask to show on:
Lock screen - Notification center and set to banners either temporary or persistent.
Yesterday, I created a bunch of demo tasks with notifications so I could test out the functionality.
The basic process was to use Siri and say
remind me in one minute to do xxx.
this would default to my apple reminders inbox
then GoodTask would add that to the goodtask inbox automatically
the GoodTask auto snooze notifications were set to every minute 5 times
then if I let the phone sleep the good task notifications would show on the lock screen and Notification center
but now the Notification results are inconsistent.
this AM - on iPad I set a new demo message for a few minutes ahead and the phone did not notify while in sleep mode on the lock screen.
So I opened the phone and GoodTask seemed to NOT read the item from reminders inbox - like the sync had stopped or something
yesterday I probably hit the limit for notifications. Can somebody describe the details of limits? - I ended up deleting many of the test messages and currently have auto snooze said to just one or two Times so how does that affect the limits?
right now I'm not getting any notifications on either device for GoodTask. I am getting all the notifications for Apple reminders however. Yesterday both were coming in.
Q: how can I fix this and get GoodTask notifications working as expected?
Q: Does GoodTask have to be running in the background to be able to update and do Notification correctly? I also have Due App and it does need to be active to update...
Thanks in advance for your help – Dave
