View and sort reminders
View reminder lists
Show or hide the reminder list sidebar: The sidebar lists all of your reminder lists. Choose View > Show Sidebar. To resize the sidebar, move your pointer over the right edge of the sidebar until the pointer changes, then drag.
View the reminders in a list: Select the list in the sidebar.
Switch lists when the sidebar is hidden: Click the dots at the bottom of the Reminders window. Or move your pointer over a list of Reminders, then swipe left or right.
View a reminder list in a separate window: Double-click the list in the sidebar.
View multiple lists at the same time: Command-click the lists in the sidebar. All lists appear in the same window on the right. To go back to viewing one list, select that list in the sidebar.
View upcoming or current reminders
Show a calendar in the sidebar: Choose View > Show Calendar.
See reminders scheduled for a specific day: Click the date in the calendar. A dot below a date means there are reminders scheduled for that date.
Go back to today: While viewing a future or past month, click the dot to the left of the month name.
Return to the app where you created a reminder
If there’s an app icon to the right of the reminder name, click the icon.
An app icon appears next to reminders you added from other apps. For more information, see Add a reminder from another app.
To return a FaceTime call from a reminder you created when you declined an incoming call, click the link in the reminder. For more information, see Make and receive FaceTime calls.
Sort reminders in a list
Select a list, choose View > Sort By, then choose an option.
Your reminders are sorted only on your Mac, not on any devices where you also view your reminders.
If you use Handoff, you can switch between your Mac and other devices while viewing reminders. To open a reminder list handed off to your Mac, click the Handoff Reminders icon that appears at the left side of the Dock.
