Setting a task reminder is a great way to keep track of upcoming tasks without having to check your instance for deadlines.
To set a task reminder, go into a piece of content that you are working on and find the task that you want to set a reminder for. Note: the task must have a deadline and an assignee.
Click on the small clock icon.
A menu will appear where you can choose how long before your task is due you would like to receive a reminder.
You will receive and email and an in-app notification at the time specified by your reminder. Reminder emails override any settings you have around notifications in your profile, so even if you are set to receive in-app notifications only, you will receive reminder emails.
Please note: If you add a reminder to someone else's task, you will receive the email reminder, not the person assigned to the task.
