Can't delete items from Reminders....
Hi-I have a lovely new XS phone and I use Reminders for my grocery list. I have tried to delete the items that I have in my cart but they reappear. I swipe left and tap on Delete. Is there something I am not doing right? I went from a 6 to the XS and there are certain things I am having to learn how to use so maybe this is one of those things.
I have upgraded to the latest OS-12.1. Maybe there is a setting on my MBP (running Mojave) that needs to be changed. I don't know. Thank you for any tips!
It sounds to me like it is having problems syncing to the cloud service of your Reminders account. If your reminders are part of your iCloud account double check that you are fully signed in to iCloud.
Or you might try TOTO - within iCloud settings turn reminders off, then turn on again to prompt a re-sync.
Additionally - because iOS Reminders app has no way of forcing a sync/refresh to the server, I have found that going in to the Calendar app then tapping on the "Calendars" button at bottom then dragging the screen down to request a refresh.... will also refresh Reminders.
Graham McKay..... THANK YOU!! It was the refreshing the calendar that did it. All is well! And now I can add more food to my grocery list! lol
So, one of your devices/apps is not syncing as expected. Sounds like you’ve got an iPhone plus iPad plus Mac. The next phase of isolation would be to only have one of them turned on (or connected to the internet) at a time.
For example, turn on airplane mode on both the iPhone & iPad and then use the web browser on the Mac to delete those items. See what happens within both the browser and the Reminders app on the Mac. If nothing strange happens reconnect one other device and do some tests, etc.
Ok. I will work on that today. Thank you!
Ok. It's the Mac that's the culprit. I turned on Airplane mode on my iPad and iPhone and logged into iCloud. Deleted the items. They reappeared.
Tested the iPhone first. Turned off Airplane mode. Deleted the items. They are still deleted even with the wifi turned back on and the wifi turned on on the Mac.
Same results with the iPad. Items still not appearing even with all iDevices using wifi. EXCEPT for the Mac, the items have reappeared.
Hi Graham! I thought I would update you about my issue... I don't know exactly how I was able to permanently delete most items from my Reminders list but all but one seem to be gone except for saffron. lol I think that food 'might' be gone from my food Reminders list.
I think I was able to delete them from the Reminders in Fantastical...
Thank you again for your patience with me, Judy
