Can OF iPad and iPhone share the same Reminders capture folder? Thread Tools Search this Thread Display Modes
Hi there.

Having some small frustrations with Reminders Capture. I had set both OF in the iPhone and iPad to watch the default Reminders folder. The iPhone pulls it just fine - the iPad never pulls the items. They'll show up via Omni Sync Server once the iPhone has pulled, but in terms of watching the default folder, I'm getting nothing.

When I change to a different Reminder Capture folder on iPad it seems to pull the data and it will show up after a manual sync. But if I then change the iPhone to the same folder, the issue is there again.

Is it the case that each device must have it's own folder to Reminders Capture to?

Sorry if this has been answered in previous posts.
If the iPhone and iPad are both trying to capture reminders from the same Reminders list, whichever one happens to get notified about the reminder first will capture it. (And then, as you saw, the other will pick it up when your OmniFocus data is synced.)

If you wanted to be sure that when you talk to Siri on your iPad, it would get captured directly by OmniFocus on your iPad, then yes, you would want to set up separate reminders lists/folders for each device's OmniFocus.

(Most folks who have both seem to keep their iPhone handy even when they're using the iPad, so it makes the most sense for them to only set up Reminders Capture on the iPhone.)
