Notifications are never shown


I am not really experienced with Ionic, yet. So please bare with me.

I am trying to show a notification at a certain date and time. I have tried a lot, but it is never showing in the emulator. I found and edited this piece of code:

createnotification() {
let remindid = new Date().getUTCMilliseconds(); = moment(“2019-01-31 12:20:00”).format(“YYYY-MM-DD HH:mm:ss”);

let notification = {
  id: remindid,
  title: this.title,
  text: this.description, 
  forceShow: 'true',
  coldstart: true,
  foreground: false,


let alert = this.alrtCtrl.create({
  title: 'Notifications set at ' +,
  buttons: ['Ok']



I think it has something to do with the “at” property. I tried different variations of the date, used the “trigger”-property. Nothing seems to work.

What am I missing?
