What will TickTick delete from Reminders?
I have multiple Reminder lists and items from multiple sources including iCloud and Exchange. What will the Siri Integration option import and what will it delete? Can I configure it at all?

Will it import and delete only iCloud items? Will it import and delete items that are stored on Exchange? Will it import and delete everything?

I do not want to test it for fear it will delete everything.
Hi jmajka,

If you enter Reminder and Siri page in TickTick by: Settings, Advanced Settings, Reminder & Siri. There are two main options: "Siri Integration" and "Import Existing Tasks".

If you enable the button "Siri Integration", tasks in reminders will automatically remove to TickTick, which will delete contents in Reminders.

If you just tap "Import Existing Tasks" at the bottom, tasks in Reminders will be manually imported to TickTick, and these tasks will also stay in Reminders.

iCould an Exchange should be the same according to your settings in TickTick.
Thanks, Wendy. Just to confirm -- it will remove all Reminders in all Lists across all Accounts?

If so, unfortunately I cannot use it but appreciate your response. Consider a future feature that would allow Siri integration in one list rather than all lists. Other apps allow you to select one List for integration. Thanks!
Hi jmajka,
Yes, if "Siri Integration" is enabled, all reminders in "Reminders" will be removed to TickTick.
I'll also note down your suggestion to see if it's feasible.
+1 from me. I'd love a setting, which allows me
either
to choose a defined IOS Reminder list to import (and delete) from
or
to import (and delete) from the IOS Reminder's DEFAULT list only [settings/reminders/default list]

This would allow us to continue IOS Reminders for other purposes... .
Agreed. There should be an option to "Delete reminders after import".
+1 here
until Siri API allows developers to add reminders I think we need to be able to choose which reminder list to use for import+deletion.
risk is deleting shared task in reminders for other people
+1 from me as well for "a future feature that would allow Siri integration in one list rather than all lists". Could be a defined list or the default Reminders list (as Volkmar suggests), wouldn't matter to me. I'd really like to use the Siri integration feature, but not if it removes all Reminders from all lists.

Any chance this will be implemented in the future? Thanks.
+1 here too. Kind of totally ruins my current workflow. Only downside I’ve found so far with using Ticktick!
Agree with this also. Need to be able to pick what list is imported. I thought previously that it would only sync the TickTick list that was created in Reminders. I've noticed that all reminders from all lists are synced and deleted from the Reminders app.
This is almost a deal-breaker for me. I have hundreds of items in a dozen lists in Reminders, and I do NOT want all of these in TickTick. Example: One list I keep is packing. One is for next summer vacation ideas. One is for Christmas gifts to consider next Christmas. Etc.
TickTick is for TASKS. I do not keep 'tasks" in my iphone Reminders app -- I keep lists of ideas, plans, and possibilities.
Not being able to use Siri to add Tasks to TickTick is a definite liability for TickTick.
Please change this.
We are working on some improvement of this feature.
I really wish I had seen this thread earlier. I have now LOST ALL of my Reminders lists. I can not even recreate them in the Reminders app, because Tick Tick continues to import them and then delete them. There seems to be no way to deactivate this feature in Tick Tick once you have activated it. I am so angry at the ridiculously poor implementation of this feature that I am going to ask for a refund and stop using TickTick. This is a total deal-breaker.
I'm in the same boat here. I have 2 lists in reminders, one with reminders I add via Siri would like to sync with Ticktick and one with groceries which I don't want showing up in ticktick, hope to be able to choose what lists ticktick will look for reminders in soon!
+1 just to add to everyone’s comments. I have a different grocery list app I’d like to pull from my reminders “grocery list” and then tick tick to pull reminders from “reminders”.

Thanks!
Ooh, boy - I just discovered by accident that my husband's entries to our shared grocery list got deleted. Not cool. Other older apps allow you to specify which list to pull from -- TickTick definitely needs to do this, too.
Same here! Not being able to choose which lists are imported is a deal breaker... All of my iOS shared lists are broken because of this.
I wanted to pull in my comment from another thread I started since this thread had more action/attention.

One of the reasons why I left Things to give TickTick another go is what seems to be more seamless Siri integration, especially combined with locations! Great work y'all!

An area of opportunity might be a way to specify individual lists to import/look for items in. I ask this because I use a separate grocery list app (it auto organizes the order of my items which is great) for groceries and has a great Apple Watch experience specifically for shopping.

The problem right now is that TickTick is importing to do items from both the default reminders list AND my grocery list. When this happens the item is then deleted from my Grocery List (3rd party app and Reminders).

I would love the ability to toggle on/off individual lists in reminders for TickTick to scrape information from.

Thanks for listening!
I just subscribed to TickTick and really like the UI and overall features. But this may be a dealbreaker for me. I have AnyList for groceries and that imports items from specific lists. The problem, however, is that because TickTick doesn’t allow me to specify a list (I would just want to import for a specific list I have set up), it’s importing my grocery stuff before it gets a chance to import from Reminders. Ugh. And now I can’t seem to even deactivate the feature.

I really love this app, but it may not work for me now. I had been toying with paying the annual subscription but won’t now. I REALLY don’t want to cancel because this app is so perfect in so many other ways. But I may have to.
+1 The current option of deleting all your lists makes it unusable for me. Just nominate a single list (like Things and Omnifocus do!)
I have been banging this drum for a while, but hey I can change background colors.
