In my org i wanted to see Reminder Set field and fields of reminder date&time....when i am creating new task....in chatter action or in global action page layouts.

So i edited Global action button page layout to add "Reminder Set" field in page layout. But I can't see the Date & time fields of reminder...to add them in layout. Also when i create new task and i set "Reminder set" field to Checked(True)...when i see the detail page of that task...i see it unchecked (false).

Any idea how can i add those reminder date & time field on pagelayouts....also why does it override the value of the flag (reminder set) when record is created.

Thanks for your time!

This capability is now available, as of the Winter'19 Release of Salesforce. You need to add the "Reminder Set" field to your quick action layouts.

For more details, see the Winter'19 Release Notes


The reminder date\time fields aren't manually added to the layout. You only add the 'Reminder Set' field and checking the box automatically shows the reminder date and time.

But reminders aren't supported in global actions. You can add the 'Reminder Set' field to the layout for the action but it does not do anything when checked.

  • Yeah...that is exactly what is happening........was just hoping for any workaround this limitation May 13, 2018 at 4:39
  • I don't know of any way to work around it. If it's worth the effort, you can create a Lightning component action instead of a quick action. That will give you more control over the behavior but it's more effort to build and maintain than a quick action. May 13, 2018 at 10:11
