Description

Saying you have something you must do before meeting. So it would be great to create a reminder which would remind you to do this something. The reminder should, of course, support a date... Format can be something like: “Remind me to <do something> on Monday”. This is an optional feature request. Just an idea.

Sometimes you need not to forget to do something... Just reminding is not enough here, in my opinion. Saying you asked Oragnutan to remind you to... buy milk. But when asked you were to busy to do this and to “scheduler” a later reminder...

So I suggest “aggressive” reminder like:

User: Please ensure that I bought milk till 18:00 today
Orangutan: I will!

And:
in 1 hours - Orangutan: You ask me to ensure that you bought milk? Have you done this?
in 30 minutes - Orangutan: Hm... You did not answer! I really must know - have you done this?!
in 30 minutes + a while - User: No! I'm busy!!!
in 30 minutes + a while - Orangutan: Ok...
in 15 minutes - Orangutan: Do this!!! Or you did?
in 15 minutes + a while - User: Fuck! Ok! Ok! Leaving for!!!..
in 15 minutes + a while - Orangutan: Go do this!!!
in 15 minutes + a while - User went away
in approx. 5 minutes - User went online
in approx. 5 minutes - Orangutan: I really hope you did it?
in approx. 5 minutes - User: Yes!!!
in approx. 5 minutes - Orangutan: Nice!
in approx. 5 minutes - User: Thanks...

That is - Orangutan should remind you during some period (maybe configured and there can be a default period)...

User: Remind me to write status at 17:00 every working Thursday

If “working” is omitted you will get reminder even on holiday Thursday...

“It would be great to have Orangutan reminder” - that’s what I think many times per week...

This should be a main feature of a public gTalk bot.

So I have a proposal of the following syntax:

  1. Remind <user> | Ensure that <user> ... | Send <user> ... [mode]
  2. ... [text]
  3. when I am at home [resource]
  4. in <x> days before | on <day> before {then in <x> days} [delay]
  5. on 14th [date]
  6. each <period> [period]
  7. <x> times [count]
  8. starting from <date> [start]

  • Remind me in a day about the Developer's Day on 256th day of year

  • Tell me in 20 weeks that I should be ready
  • Tell me to check new series of Supernatural 22 times on each Wednesday evening since September 28 when I am at home (“home” is Jabber resource)
