i am using the upcoming reminders widget on the widgets home screen. I have several reminders that I have dates within the next few weeks set to remind me. Not one of these reminders display within the upcoming reminders widget. How does this widget work?

Thanks.

The Apple Reminders widget just displays things that are due today or are overdue and that's it. It won't show things without a due date and it won't show those that are upcoming beyond today.

You might need to find a different third party reminders widget for what you are looking for, like Reminders+, for example.

Sorry, the full name is Reminder: Widget+
There are some other apps that have a widget that supports reminders as well, like Reminders Widget, Widgetcal, and some others that I can't quite recall at the moment.

How unbelievably useless. I couldn't figure out why it is always empty. Can't believe it is by design.
