How to set up deadline reminders?
- The in-app reminders
Click on the top right of your column title and choose "Set as deadline." Once on the page, pick the status column you want to synchronize with your deadline.
Once done, both the status and date column you chose will be dependent on one another. If your due date is today, the date icon will appear as full.
If the date passed already, the pulse icon will turn red.
If your due date is in the upcoming 6 days, your date icon will show as partially full.
Whenever you mark a pulse as Done the due date will be crossed off.
Note ✍️: Even if you don't synchronize your columns, the pulses due for today will show as a blue notification on your board filter icon, as shown in the gif below.
- The calendar integration
You can synchronize each date with your calendar by using the “sync calendar” function at the bottom of the date picker when you click on a date. This will allow you to create a system of alert reminders and be alerted each time a task is coming up to its due date. To learn more about this option, check out this article.
