Notifications set in the past are triggered directly

If you set a notification with a date that is inferior to ‘now’ (new Date())

The notification will be immediately trigger. I guess there is some use case were it’s useful.

In my case it’s problematic because I manage a calendar, and I want people able to set (reminder) notification for recurring events.


  • I add an event now, repeating daily
  • I set a daily reminder (notification) on that event one hour before
  • First notification triggered directly because set in the past, one hour before now for the first event (or it shouldn’t)

So I had to develop a system that recognise if it’s repeated reminder and start it later if the first was set in the past
