Not everyone knows about the Facebook reminder feature. It is a useful tool that can make your experience on the platform more enjoyable.
In recent times, it may seem as though the reminder has disappeared from the Messenger platform. The ability to set reminders on Facebook will help you stay abreast of events around you.
The reminder feature lets you schedule an event reminder that is instantly delivered to group members.
Let us show you the steps involved in setting reminders on Facebook and Messenger.

How to Create an Event on Facebook
If the reminder option for Facebook Messenger is unavailable, there is another feature that helps to update everyone about future activities: the Event Feature.
Using either your mobile device or desktop browser, access the “Events” tab. You will find it on the left menu toolbar in a web browser or on the hamburger icon if you use a mobile application.
Select “Create” or “Create an Event.”
Either tap the “Private,” “Group,” or “Public” event option.
Input the title, time, date, and place, and if you wish, add extra details.
When done, click “Create.”

Why can’t I see the reminder feature on Messenger?
If you don’t see the reminder feature on Messenger, it could be because Facebook is testing new features or updates. The reminder feature may not be available in your region or device yet.
However, if you cannot see the reminder feature for a long time, you can try updating your Messenger app to the latest version available on your device’s app store.
You can also check if you have the latest version of the Facebook app installed on your device since both apps are interconnected.
If the reminder feature is still not available after the update, you can try logging out and logging back into your account or even uninstalling and reinstalling the Messenger app.
If none of these solutions work, please contact Facebook’s support team for further assistance.
