The below screenshot of the My Reminders page in my Zoho Planner account should give you an idea of how Zoho Planner helps me out with my regular activities.

To explain it a bit, all the above are recurring reminders. Zoho Planner allows you to set a reminder to repeat in various time frames. I use the weekly, monthly & yearly options. For example, I clean our window air conditioner’s filter & vacuum clean our home’s ceilings every weekend.

Monthly jobs include sending the rent check to our landlord, paying electricity & phone bills, submitting the medical & telephone bills to our office for reimbursement and making the monthly credit card payment.

February & March are the months in India where salaried employees collect and submit the various tax exemption proofs to the finance department of the companies they work. As you can see, Zoho Planner reminds me by email to do these activities in February.

Zoho Planner promptly sends me an email according to the reminders I’d set. For example, a reminder email I got last month for sending the rent check.

Hope that helps you in coming up with your own reminder schedule. Let us know in the comments how you are using Zoho Planner.

    Hmm. Not a bad idea. I’m always forgetting when I last changed my oil on my car or my friends’ birthday. I should try that out.
