How to add Reminders to Gmail, like in Google Inbox

As Google Inbox is shutting down, let me share a trick to keep adding reminders to Gmail, thanks to IFTTT.

1. Add a “quick note” button on your iPhone

2. Make sure the notes are visible in your inbox

  • “Never send to spam”
  • “Always consider as important”
  • and “Mark as unread” (optional, depending on your preference)

3. Make them look like Google Inbox Reminders

Right-click on this icon to download it.
  1. Right-click on the icon above to download it;
  2. then, click the avatar icon at the top left corner of the dialog from Google Contacts and upload the icon you just downloaded, so that it becomes the “avatar” associated to that email address.

That’s it!
