Set LocalNotification from form settings


I have a form where a user can tick which days and what time to set off an alarm. The form saves it’s settings.

I want to now add a localNotification to fire as per the settings. I have used the ngCordova plugin to do this. The code does not raise an error, but I can’t get a notification to fire.

This is what my controller looks like.

angular.module('starter.controllers', [])
.controller('DailyCtrl', function($scope, $location, Settings,  $cordovaLocalNotification) {
  $ = {};
  $ = Settings.all();
  $scope.doSave = function() {$;
      var today = new Date();
      //save notification
       $scope.addNotification = function () {            
        $ionicPlatform.ready(function() {
          $cordovaLocalNotification.add({ message: 'Great app!' });
            id: 'happi_alert',                
            date:       new Date(today.getFullYear(), today.getMonth(), today.getDate(), 16, 33, 0),    
            message:    "Happi App Message",  // The message that is displayed
            title:      "HappiApp Alert",  // The title of the message          
            sound:      "beep.caf",  // plays `beep.mp3` located in folder 
            //json:       String,  // Data to be passed through the notification
            repeat:     "minutely",  
            autoCancel: true,          
          }).then(function () {
            console.log('callback for adding background notification');
        $cordovaLocalNotification.getScheduledIds(function (scheduledIds) {
          alert('Scheduled IDs: ' + scheduledIds.join(' ,'));
        }, scope);              

How can i start to debug this? Where might I be going wrong?

Any points would be great, thanks
