Pretty much everything interesting that can be done with TODOs and
scheduling is done via the entry point of Agenda Views. When you say you
want a "reminder", my guess is that a scheduled todo showing up on the
day/week agenda view is probably what you mean. Try calling `org-agenda'
and then choosing 'a': is that what you were after? I keep one agenda
view or another open all day long as I work, that's how it reminds me.
I think I've heard of people setting audible alarms, but I don't know
any details, sorry…
