Snooze Time

Let's say a have a desktop notification popup window at 8:31 pm.

When i snooze it for tomorrow/2d /3d/7d it appears next days at 6 am (default notification time) instead of 8:31 pm

Why is it not working on a full day (24h) basis and only on a calendaristic day basis?


  • Would this suggestion fit your needs because I don't think I would force it to everyone: https://jasonsavard.com/forum/discussion/comment/33508#Comment_33508

  • Let me put it this way.

    I have Desktop notification popup window at 8:00 pm.

    Why can I not snooze it 24h but only 10h until next days at 6 am (default notification time)?

    If I snooze 10 notification at 10 different hours today, for tomorrow, all of them popup at 6 am (default notification time), instead of the same 10 different hours of the day before, which is very annoying.

    1d/2d/3d/7d common sens says that there have to be 24h/48h/72h/168h interval.

  • So I try to mimic common snoozing practices, lol if that's a thing. What does Gmail snooze to? or how about Outlook?

    Gmail and Outlook are not models in snoozing practices and even if they wood it is not practical that all of them popup at 6 am, which is the default notification time and not the only one.

    I can give tons of sophisticated time management software where this rigid rule does not apply.

    It seems that there is libertarian snoozing only intra day (hours) and not inter day (days/weeks) which has to follow the rigid rule of the default notification time.

  • Another inconvenience of setting all notifications at the same time would be their overcrowding (for example, when there are 12 at once) In the picture above, you can clearly see how the last notification is only partially visible.

    All these problems would be solved if the snooze instruction respected the 24 h interval. That is, a notification postponed from today at 4:49 by 1 day would be found tomorrow at the same time (4:49) and not at the default time.

    And then the notifications would be distributed throughout the day, avoiding their agglomeration and increasing their usefulness, that is, to appear exactly at the right time, so exactly when you need them to remind you of an event or operation.

    The proof of the fact that it is technically possible is the postponement by 1.5 days when the notification appears after 36 hours, that is, without crowding the default time.

    It remains for you to internalize this suggestion that brings only benefits and no inconvenience.
