Self-reminders are, as the name implies, reminders to yourself. Think of them as "to-do" lists. A self-reminder can be associated with a person, or they can be standalone. Self-reminders are not automatically generated by VSys: you make these for yourself.

Due and overdue reminders will show on the home screen


To use self-reminders, first enable them in System preferences and feature enabling on the Feature enabling panel.

Self-reminder types: you can create self-reminder types from the Setup panel. These don't affect the reminders, but they can serve to help you organize them as well as filter them when used in notifications.
