The individuals you’ve invited to the Reminders list will have to accept the list owner’s invitation. Otherwise, they won’t be able to collaborate on the app with you. Till they accept the invitation, it is going to keep saying “Pending” below their name.

Hence, we recommend telling that individual in person, via email, or through the old-fashioned SMS that you’ve invited them to your Reminders list. The app is a great way for bosses to remind staff members of pending tasks, as well as parents who want to keep tabs on their children’s homework or chore-related progress.
