Sometimes, Alarm or window that asks about adding a reminder from incoming messages does not appear or pop-up, this is either due to restrictions in Android 10+ or on some phones, the app needs special permissions.
On Android 10+ application needs permission (SYSTEM_ALERT_WINDOW or OVERLAY ON TOP OF OTHER APPS) to work appropriately and show pop-ups from background services.
Starting from v4.1.0 of Smart Messenger with Self Reminder app, this is asked to the user on the main screen of the app.

To try if these settings work, please try sending an SMS to yourself with some schedulable information like a message that contains “today”, “tomorrow”, any date or time, or coming Tuesday or after 3 days, etc.
