Quick Start Guide

The following guide will help you get up and running with the Simply Remind Me app. If you have any questions or issues, please don't hesitate to contact us.

Register an account

Before you can begin using the application, you need to register for an account. You can either register using an e-mail address and password, or use one of the supported social networks to login - your account will be created automatically and you can skip the following step.

Confirm your e-mail address

If you use an e-mail address and password to create your account, you will need to confirm that your e-mail address is correct. An e-mail containing an "activation link" will be sent to the e-mail address you enter into the registration form.

Create an event

To Simply Remind Me, an event is simply something you want to be reminded about. This could be your nephew's birthday, an important deadline for a work project, or the date your car insurance is due for renewal.

Each event can have one or more reminders associated with it, at different times using different media types. For example: you could set up an email reminder a month before your car insurance is due for renewal so you can start searching for a better deal, and an SMS reminder a couple of days before to remind you to ensure you have a replacement cover in place before your current one expires.

Simply Remind Me has a number of event "templates" which give you a quick and simple way to set up reminders for some common events, or you can set up a completely custom event and reminders for something completely different!

To use a pre-defined template, click the category it appears in, and then click the event type. If you want a completely custom event, click the "Create a blank event" button.


Once you have selected either a pre-defined template, or a blank event, you will get the event form. On this form you will need to provide:

  • A title for your event - so you can identify it in the application and on reminders
  • A date and time the event is due - for an all-day event (e.g. a birthday) you can set this to 00:00 (midnight) or 12:00 (midday.)
  • One or more reminders

If you have selected a pre-defined template (like the one shown above) you can simply click the tick-box next to each reminder you want to use. Additional reminders can be added using the "Add another reminder" button.

For each reminder, you will need to provide:

  • A title of what it is you need to be reminded of - e.g. "Send a birthday card"
  • Date and time the reminder will be sent. This should be the time you want to receive the reminder.
    Please note: if you set the time as 00:00 (midnight) this will send you an e-mail or text message at midnight and may awaken you if you leave your phone turned on overnight!
  • Whether to send an e-mail or text message reminder
  • The e-mail address or mobile number to send the reminder to
  • An optional message to also include with the reminder - any additional "notes to myself" to include

If you have a suggestion for additional templates, please don't hesitate to get in touch - we don't bite!


When your event has been created, you will see a dashboard showing the reminders that are due to be sent, reminders that have already been sent, and the option to add further reminders or change existing ones.

Receive your reminder

At the time you have requested, Simply Remind Me will send your reminders - look out for them on your mobile phone or e-mail account!

E-mail reminders will appear from "no-reply@mail.simplyremind.me".
SMS reminders will appear from "REMINDER".
