Quick Reminder entry with alert System 10.8
If you ever want to create a reminder with an alert time, it's easy to do, and it's similar to Calendar's Quick Entry feature.

Just type something like "Dinner with grandpa at 6pm", and you will get a reminder with an alert at 6pm today. You can even specify a date, or use relative dates like today, tomorrow, etc.

If posting in other languages than system language, leave out the 'at' and denote the time in 24h time format...

My system language is English, reminders are in Dutch, French and English and my system is set in the am/pm system. The above makes sure I get it right every time.

More info would make this more useful:

which app are we in? where do we type? what is Calendar's quick entry feature (I can't find it in Calendar "Help").

The hint is for the Reminders app in Mountain Lion. I missed the app name too until I re-read the title of the the hint. So easy to overlook the biggest text on the page. ;)

I just tried it and it worked as the author described. Too bad location based reminders can't be created the same way.

Correct, where do we type that? Hints so brief are not very helpful
