About deadlines and reminders
A deadline determines
the date and time that you must complete a task by. When a deadline
passes, the server routes the task to the next step in the process (which
can be another user’s To do list) and then the deadline icon appears on
the task. The deadline icon appears regardless of the rules that
are associated with the process.
Note: You can see the Deadline date for a task in
List view if you set your column heading preferences to display
A reminder notifies you of a task that requires your attention.
Reminders occur at a predetermined time and then at regular intervals
until you complete the associated task. When you receive a reminder,
the reminder icon appears
on the task.
The business process determines the behavior and timing of deadlines
and reminders. Not all processes have deadlines and reminders. The
administrator specifies whether email notifications are sent for
deadlines and reminders. You can set your preferences on whether
to receive email notifications.
