Schedule alerts to appear while working in Roam


You could use the Copy Extension button below to individually install this extension. To install, just paste anywhere in your Roam graph and click "Yes, I Know What I'm Doing".

Manual Installation

If the extension doesn't work after using the copy extension button above, try installing manually using the instructions below.

First create a block with the text {{[[roam/js]]}} on any page in your Roam DB. Then, create a single child of this block and type three backticks. A code block should appear. Copy this code and paste it into the child code block in your graph:

var existing = document.getElementById("roamjs-alert");
if (!existing) {
  var extension = document.createElement("script");
  extension.src = ""; = "roamjs-alert";
  extension.async = true;
  extension.type = "text/javascript";

Finally, click "Yes, I Know What I'm Doing".


Type {{alert}} into a block. A popover will appear with "When" and "Message" fields. Enter when you want the alert to trigger in natural language like "In 5 minutes" or "In 2 hours" in the "When" field. Enter what message you want the alert to say in the "Message" field. A confirmation modal will appear, clearing the {{alert}} text upon confirmation. After the specified amount of time, an alert will appear in Roam with the message you specified!

Additionally, the popover has an "Allow Notification" checkbox. When checked, the alert will instead use a notification for the alert instead of the standard browser alert. You will need to enable browser notifications from Roam to use this.

The Alert used is Blueprint's Alert component. Additionally, there is a roamjs-window-alert class name on the component to allow for custom styling in your Roam themes.

At any time, you could hit the ALT+SHIFT+A keyboard shortcut to view the Alerts Dashboard. Here, you'll see a list of all of your live extensions. Clicking the trash icon will remove the alert.
