Within Teamwork, you can set reminders for tasks to be sent at specific times via email, mobile push notification or SMS.

Reminders can be added to active tasks on your site in a number of ways.

In tasks List view, hover over the task to reveal the quick task options to the right of the task title. 

Hovering over the bell icon for reminders will allow you to select from predefined quick set options or choose a custom reminder. 

Note: The quick set options (later today, tomorrow, next week, task due date) will only set a reminder for yourself.

    • Later today - 2 hours later
    • Tomorrow - 9AM the next day

    • Task due date
  • Custom reminder - set custom date and time reminders 

Alternatively, you can hover your mouse over a task and press R on your keyboard. When using this option, a Task Reminders modal will open. Click the Add Reminder button to create a reminder.

If the associated task has repeats set, the reminder will be recreated with each new repeat of the task, at the same time and on the same day relative to the task due date.

Note: Future reminders on a task will not be sent once a task has been marked as complete.



Setting reminders on tasks with due dates

When setting a reminder on a task that has a due date set, you will see an additional option to set the time of the reminder based on the task's due date.

This can be done when creating a new task or on an existing tasks.

Depending on the due date option you select from the dropdown, you will see the reminder date automatically adjust in the How would you like to set the time of the reminder section.
