How to use Reminder?



Overview of all reminders

You can view all your set reminders on the special page Special:Reminder. There you will find a list of articles with corresponding reminders. The list can of course be sorted and filtered.

Change or delete existing reminders

If you want to change or delete an existing reminder, you can do this on the special page Special:Reminder as well.

Step 1: Mark the reminder you want to edit or delete by clicking on it. Please make sure that you don't click on the link to the article itself, to avoid being forwarded to the article.

Step 2: To change a reminder, move your mouse over the marked line. Under Actions you will find buttons to edit and delete the reminder.
Alternatively you can delete the highlighted reminder by clicking on the red Delete icon on the top left of the list.

Expiry marking

If the option Article will expire on reminder was checked during creation of the reminder, the article will be marked as expired the day the reminder is due. You will see an icon with a respective statement in the Statebar of the article.

In the detail view of the statebar, you will also find the entry Article is still up to date (unexpire this article). Click on this link if you have finished revising the article, or if you think that all presented content is up-to-date. This not only removes the "expired" marking, but also deletes the corresponding reminder.
