  1. For Developers: x-callback-url / URL Scheme (v.1.10+) top
    • Beja:// for calling the app from other app (There is a bug in 1.10, where event will be added by just calling beja://. Will be fixed in 1.10.1)
    • Beja://x-callback-url/add?event=Meeting%20with%20client%204pm&note=Call%20Adam%20at%20(402)1234%20123

    • event (NSString) parameter is mandatory, a note (NSString) paramenter is optional, x-source (NSString) is optional, and x-success (NSURL) is optional

      You can also set under beja's setting for a wait time before returning the callback. The option is immediately, 2 seconds, 5 seconds, 30 seconds and never.

      See http://x-callback-url.com for more information about x-callback-url (URL Scheme)
  2. Why am I not getting any push notification? top
    • Make sure you add username (email) and password in Beja Settings > Sign up / Login / Advance
    • Make sure you turn Notification On in iOS settings. Settings > Notification > Beja > Notification Center : ON
  3. Any shortcut to access the Quick add? top
    Yes. Just tap the header.
  4. Can we turn on/off natural language date parser when typing? top
    Yes. Just tap the header to toggle on/off while the form is active
  5. How to delete a recurring reminder? top
    Swipe from left to right on the record that you want to delete
  6. How to clean up time from natural language entry? top
    When you have an entry from natural language e.g. "Call Jim Mon. 7:45 pm", you can clean it up by triple tapping the event. The entry would be just "Call Jim"
  7. How to edit a reminder? top
    Double tap an item you wish to edit.
  8. Why my notification disappear from lock screen? top
    Yes we are aware of the situation that you are experiencing.
    This is because Beja works in the background importing events from email or built in Reminders app. This is the nature of Apple OS that whenever there is an activity of the app, the notification is removed.

    Solution:
    You can disable Background app refresh under OS Settings > General > Background App Refresh and turn off Beja. But, any event created by email or built in Reminders app will not be imported in the background and users should open Beja to import the events.
    Or
    Turn on Snooze every minute by going to Settings and set snooze interval. 1 minute or 1 hour. This will turn all events to snooze with that interval. So every notification is deleted by the OS, will be created again and again every minute.
    Or
    You can swipe from left to right to set snooze event individualy with the same result which will fire every minute until the users check it off
  9. Can't import events from Reminders app top
    First, Beja only imports time based reminder, location based is not supported, yet. Also check under iPhone Settings > Privacy > Reminders, make sure it's turned On
  10. Can you give us some samples for the Natural language date parser usage? top
    Yes. First, the basic rule is to put the time at the end and if there is no AM/PM, the parser will take is as AM. Here are few samples that you can use:
    - ... @10:45pm, @10:45 PM, at 10:45
    - ... in 2 hour, in 2hr, in 2 hours
    - ... in 30 min, in 30 minutes, in 100 minute
    - ... in 5 days, in 7days
    - ... in 2 weeks, in 4 months
    - ... next month
    - ... this/next/in the afternoon (3pm)
    - ... this/next/in the morning (7pm)
    - ... tonight, tonite, at night (9pm)
    - ... at noon, @noon (12pm)
    - ... next/this Saturday, sat 1pm/13
    - ... Saturday, sat morning/night/afternoon/noon
    - ... at 5am PDT/GMT... (this will convert to your local time if default time zone is auto adjust)
    - ... Tomorrow, tom. @4
    - ... aug 7
    - ... Oct sun 7pm
