How to Use WhatsApp As Your Personal Reminder Space

by | Jan 31, 2021 | 0 comments

There’s a lot of communication going on in Whatsapp. But can you easily remember the things you need to follow up with later?

WhatsApp is definitely the best messaging app there is, but often information gets lost in chats or groups, and it is hard to save information for future reference. This is especially true if you use it for business and want to prepare a text or write down an idea so you can follow up later.

Here is how you can make your own private space in WhatsApp to forward messages you want to save or simply jot down any thoughts, reminders, and the grocery list!

All you need to do is create a new group and add one person (preferably your spouse), name the group “Notes” or something else, then remove that person, and you now have your own personal space!

Once you send a message to your private group, it will be there for later and when you accomplish the task or note you sent there, you can delete it so not to clog up space.

How is this different than simply using Notepad? When tasks come up within Whatsapp, for example, a colleague asks you to handle “X,” you can simply forward the task to your personal chat. You don’t need to type it up in a separate list. 

Step-by-Step instructions: 

Open WhatsApp > Press the note icon on top left > New Group > Choose a person > Next > Name the group > Create > Press the group name >  Scroll down to participants, and press on the other person > Remove from group.


1. Add a picture of yourself as the profile picture to easily find your personal chat in all your chats.

2. Pin the chat for easy access.

On iPhone: Swipe right on the chat you want to pin, then tap Pin.

On Android: Tap and hold the chat you want to pin, then tap Pin chat
