    Hey rnikitin, this is possible in Windows 10!

    In Windows 10, alarms and reminders are simply toast notifications (with their scenario set to alarm or reminder).

    You can learn all about toast notifications in Windows 10 here (do a Ctrl+F for “scenario”): https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/tiles_and_toasts/2015/07/02/adaptive-and-interactive-toast-notifications-for-windows-10/

    And you can learn about sending toast notifications (which works perfectly fine in a background task) from this Quickstart: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/tiles_and_toasts/2015/07/08/quickstart-sending-a-local-toast-notification-and-handling-activations-from-it-windows-10/

    You can also use ScheduledToastNotification from the background task to schedule the toast notification alarm/reminder for a future date.
