Hi, miyahira.

Create a recurring task.  That's the simplest solution.

You will need a task for each reminder per day since a task's recurrence can only be set to daily and not hourly.
e.g. If you want to be reminded 8:00, 12:00 and 17:00 create 3 tasks with recurrence set to daily and set the reminder for the first task to 8:00, the 2nd to 12:00 and the 3rd to 17:00

Create ONE entry and each time it pops up - Snooze it for 1 hour.
