The plugin can detect repeated quests and automatically make reminders for you
 
Description
Introduction

This plugin helps you keep track of all those recurring tasks you need to juggle when managing several characters. It maintains a table of reminders for "to do" items, each of which has a countdown timer and an optional color-coded category. You can organize the reminders into tabs however you prefer, such as a tab for each character, or a tab for each category of task.

It can automatically create reminders for crafting cooldowns, raid/chest locks, tasks, daily/weekly quests, and ingredient crates.

Thanks to Gloradan for the idea, for French translations, and for the beautiful icons. Thanks to Rimeya and Glafria for German translations.

Installation and Startup

To install:
  • First, unzip the archive. You will get a folder called "Thurallor". Move this folder into your Documents/The Lord of the Rings Online/Plugins folder. (If you have not previously installed any plugins, you will have to first create the Plugins folder.)
  • Or if you prefer, you may use Plugin Compendium to do the installation.
To load the plugin, use the game's built-in Plugin Manager. This can be found in the "^" menu, at the bottom of the screen. Click the icon, then choose "System" and then "Plugin Manager".

When the Plugin Manager opens, find Reminders in the list on the left side, then click "Load" to load the plugin. If you would like the plugin to load automatically each time you login, choose your character's name in the "Automatically Load For" pulldown menu.

Features
  • When the timer for a reminder expires, the icon for the plugin will show a flashing indicator to alert you.
  • When the timer for a reminder expires, you can delete the reminder, postpone it, or simply leave it alone. In that case you'll get another alert next time you login.
  • If enabled, the plugin will automatically create reminders for repeatable quests and tasks.
  • If enabled, the plugin will automatically create reminders for crafting cooldowns: When you craft an item with a cooldown, it automatically adds a reminder that will expire when the cooldown is complete.
  • If enabled, the plugin will automatically create reminders when you open Ingredient Crates and Premium Ingredient Crates.
  • If you specify a location for a reminder, the plugin provides a convenient button to set the target for Waypoint.
  • You can create as many categories as you want and assign colors to them.
  • Automatically create travel itineraries by pasting a list of locations from lotro-wiki.
  • Reminders can be sorted by any column of the table (description, category, character, time remaining, etc.). All of the table columns can be resized or hidden, and you can change the color of each tab and its associated table. Right-clicking on a reminder allows you to copy/move it to a different tab.
Wish List
  • More types of automatically-generated reminders.
  • Drag-and-drop support to move the reminders around within the tables and among the tabs.
  • Translations for Russian players. Please send me a PM if you're willing to help.
  • Proper support for Daylight Saving Time.

Thanks for this really useful plugin. I have a feature request. Would you consider adding a new option for triggering reminders? It would be useful for me if I could have a reminder pop up every time I retreat or am revived. Ever since they changed Motivating Speech for captains so that it's no longer automatic, I've had the hardest time remembering to turn it on. I've set up a reminder for login, but another that would pop up after I've been defeated would help too. I'd imagine that this could be useful for any number of other toggle skills, too. The hunter's speed buff comes to mind, as do the crafting-related tracking skills. Thanks!
Thanks for the feedback/suggestion. I'll add it to my list, but I can't promise when/if I'll get to it.

There is already a plugin for this (for any character that needs to always perform an action on revive, like Motivating Speech or Find the Path), LogRemind. It also displays the reminder when first loading so if it is set to autoload, it will remind you when you log in.
Thurallor should be able to implement the same mechanism in Reminders fairly easily, meanwhile, https://www.lotrointerface.com/downl...LogRemind.html
Thanks for the heads-up, Garan. I was hoping to avoid installing yet another plugin, but for the moment, I'll check out LogRemind.

If you don't want it to subtract the 4 hours, then in that same menu, select "Postpone the reminder, for 24 hours, from the current time".

You can define what this button does by right-clicking it. Do so and select "Postpone the reminder for 24 hours from the previous expiration time".

Then, when the reminder expires, left-click the button to advance the expiration time by 24 hours from the previous expiration time.

(Let me know if this doesn't solve your issue. I'm not entirely sure I've understood the problem.)

When the reminder is expired, when you hover the mouse over the "Time" field, you will see a "postpone" button:

Hi! I just wanted to comment again on my experience with moving reminders between tabs.

From time to time I reorganize my reminders due to changing priorities, and I've been using the method you outlined below. The problem arises in the "Raid/Chest Lock" and "Repeated Quest" dialogs. After changing the Tab, if I click the "Now" checkbox, then the new reminder is created in the new tab in its completed state, even if the original reminder was not completed. The alternative is to leave the "Now" checkbox unchecked, but then the new reminder doesn't show up in the new tab until I complete it again, which makes it difficult to keep track of.

Some possible ways to address this issue could be:

1. The ability to move a reminder in its current state to a new tab (along with the underlying repeatable).

2. The option in the "Raid/Chest Lock" and "Repeated Quest" dialogs to create the reminder in the uncompleted state.

Would greatly appreciate any effort to improve this process. And as always, thanks so much for all your work on this enormously helpful plugin!

Hmm... if you want to add a more streamlined option for moving & updating the tab of a repeatable reminder, maybe a "Move to other tab permanently" dialog option next to the existing move/copy options?
Well, the problem is that more than one quest / chest / etc. may create/update the same reminder.

For example, any time I open a chest called "Gamnagol's Chest - Tier 1" or "Gragarag's Chest - Tier 1" or "Guruthan's Chest - Tier 1", I have configured it to create/update a single reminder called "Remmorchant side bosses - Tier 1". (I did this by customizing the "Description" field, setting it to the same value for all three chests.)

It's a nontrivial thing to update all of those, if and only if the user desires it. But I will think about how to do it.

I can certainly appreciate why a power user would want to retain the ability to do a shallow move of a reminder. However, in my case (as someone who only uses the plugin to track repeatable quests/chest locks), this is never the behavior I'd want. When I naively used the existing move option, I experienced two issues before I understood what was happening:
  1. Reminders I thought I had completed were still showing up as incomplete (because they were the "moved" reminders, which were no longer attached to the underlying repeatable, and thus weren't getting updated).
  2. I found multiple duplicates of reminders in some tabs, because when a repeatable re-appeared in the tab I moved it from, I moved it to another tab again not remembering that I had already done this.
I probably won't have these particular issues anymore now that I have a better understanding of how the plugin works, but it was not obvious at first, and I spent a lot of time being confused before I got frustrated enough to diligently track what was happening. My only hope in this regard is that I can help others avoid similar issues so they can enjoy this great plugin in a carefree way.
Thanks for the detailed account of your thoughts. It highlights a deficiency in the UI semantics that I would like to address.

While I'm here, I wanted to pass along one more feature request. When creating a repeatable reminder, the "Now" option immediately creates the reminder in its completed state (i.e. the "Time" column is some positive amount of time). This works great for traditional chest locks, since they are completed at the time you create the reminder.

However, this is not the case for repeatable quests (since you create the reminder when you pick up the quest) or favoured chest locks (in general, unless it has exactly 2 favoured completions). Using "Now" for these types of repeatables creates it in its "completed" state even though it is not yet completed. Alternatively, I can create the reminder without "Now" selected, but then the reminder is not displayed until I complete it (and while this is only an issue once, it opens up the possibility of forgetting about the task while it is in this hidden state -- which is especially relevant for daily/weekly meta-quests that track the completion of other quests and so cannot be trivially completed).

The request is this: When creating a repeatable reminder, immediately display the reminder, regardless of whether "Now" is selected. Let the "Now" option only control whether or not the reminder is created in its "completed" state (and perhaps rename the option for clarity or give it a hover tooltip).
This is another example of the unclear separation between reminders per se, and the "rules" that create the reminders.

When you click "Remind me", you are not actually creating what I call a "reminder". A "reminder" doesn't exist until it appears in your table of reminders. When you click "remind me", you are only indicating that the reminder should be created when the quest / raid / chest / etc. is completed next time. That is, unless you tick the "Now" checkbox, in which case the reminder will be immediately created/updated.

However, I do see your point about doing a better job of setting the "Time" column when creating a reminder "Now", depending on the type of reminder. I will look into it.

This option is not appearing for existing repeatable reminders yet, but I assume it will work correctly the next time the reminder is recreated.
If you're impatient, you can always force the recreation by opening the settings window (Settings -> Character -> Known Repeatable Quest -> Quest), and clicking "Remind me" with the "Now" checkbox ticked.

2. Click the "(A)" icon (in the Description column) to open the settings pertaining to the reminder.
It's like you read my mind! I've updated to 2.01, and I think this addresses all the issues that previously could only be resolved by manually editing the data file. (This option is not appearing for existing repeatable reminders yet, but I assume it will work correctly the next time the reminder is recreated.)

I still think that the current behavior for moving (repeatable) reminders between tabs is likely to cause confusion for others, but personally I'm happy enough with a 3-step alternative. Thanks very much!

However, sometimes my priorities change, and at this point I will want to move the tasks between tabs. To do this, I have to manually edit the data file to update the "$tab" property.

If this is not a meaningful use case for you, I completely understand. However, if I were just choosing how it works for myself, then I would want moving a reminder between tabs to be the same as setting the "Tab" field when first creating the reminder.

(Note that the same is true for renaming a reminder for a repeatable quest/chest, and so any time I want to update the description from what I originally set it as, I also need to edit the data file manually.)
But you don't need to edit the data file manually. It's just a three-step process:

1. Move the reminder to the other tab.
2. Click the "(A)" icon (in the Description column) to open the settings pertaining to the reminder.
3. Modify the settings: Enable "Customize" for Tab, and select the new tab. In the future the reminder will be created/updated under the new tab.
