Reminders disappearing

Over the last few days I have set a few reminders - I have used this a lot so I am doing it correctly and the reminder does appear. However, by the time they I am supposed to get the reminder it has disappeared from the calendar....completely.

Using android app on phone.

Any help?

Hi Jonathan,

Welcome to the Google Calendar Help Forum!

Are you referring to not getting notifications for your reminders? If that's the case, you'll only get notifications for reminders that are scheduled for a specific time. If you created an all-day reminder, you won't get a notification for it.

If you are unable to see your reminder, make sure your reminder's Calendar is visible. Go to My Calendars > Reminders.

Additionally, you might not see a reminder due to the following reasons as well:
  • You deleted the reminder.
  • You snoozed the reminder until you reached a certain location. Once you’re there, you’ll see the reminder on today’s date in the all-day section.
  • You snoozed the reminder to "someday" in Inbox. If you want, you can edit the reminder to show on a specific date.
However, I'd suggest you try clearing the Calendar's app Cache:
  • Press your device's Home button.
  • Press your device's Menu button > Select Settings (or System Settings).
  • Tap Application Manager (or Apps).
  • Find the Calendar app > Force Stop > Tap Clear Cache.
If the issue still persists, uninstall the Calendar app and reinstall the latest version from the Google Play store and check if it helps.

Let me know if this helps!


Yes, unfortunately Pop-Up Calendar Reminders / Notifications will only work for up to a couple of minutes before the event and then they will completely vanish from Notifications on many Android devices. We should ask developers to really fix this frustrating issue which started to occur after their new 2017 version of Calendar.

I have the same problem but not with all my reminders.
Sometimes they work as intended (the stay on top till marked as done) others they disappear.
This makes google calendar unreliable for me.
