Option for alarm sound with reminders
Yes, this is a needed one.
Yes, Task Coach needs audible notifications!
I cant believe such a good program does not have audible reminders. Whats the use?
Agreed! No sound/pop-up = no reminder

Task Coach would be *exactly* what I need IF it had the option to add audible alarms. Until that gets added, I'll continue my search for another program. :(
I concur, am in need for alert sound, without it I am still in search for a better scheduling device, waking computer to do so, is good should I forget my reminder.
I found no setting within the program to set the reminder pop-up windows to be "always on top." Without such a setting, when multi-tasking in Windows, the windows pop up in back of other windows, and provide no visual signal to serve as a reminder. Coupled with lack of audible alarms for the reminders, the program effectively offers no "reminders." While the other "features" I see mentioned on these pages seem like they might be useful to some, the lack of effective reminders defeats one of the major benefits of using programs such as this, and forces me to look elsewhere. I'm sure the same is true of many other potential users who do not leave comments in the forum. I hope you will consider that in prioritizing what to add to the program next.

Agree with the idea of choosing custom sound files or multiple sound options.
Another point: it would be really ideal if along with this, the alarm was able to wake the computer from sleep
this fearutre is really lacking
and the best is the to be able to choose a different wave sound for each reminder
