How to create alert reminders



Alert Reminders pop up to notify you of an approaching deadline and can help keep you on track! In this article, you will learn a few ways to create alerts reminders. Let's dive in


Deadline Mode 

Use Deadline Mode Notifications to alert you when the date that your project needs to be completed is approaching or has already arrived. For the deadline mode to work, you will need to have a status column and a date or a timeline column. The deadline mode will connect both columns and will display visually whether your tasks are overdue, on time and more. 




Head over to the Automation Center to check out all of the different 'recipes' to create alerts and notifications for your boards. Once you're in the Automation Center, you can click on 'Due date' in the left side menu to jump to the due date recipes. 


From here, simply pick any recipe that suits you, like this one, for example:

Calendar Integration

This awesome feature allows you to receive alerts and notifications from outside of the monday.com platform. It’s easy to integrate your monday.com Timeline or Date Columns with your external calendar (Gmail, Outlook, iCal and more). Check out the Outlook Calendar Integration article or the Google Calendar Integration article to learn more. 



Update Reminders

Need to set a reminder to review an update later? The "Update Snoozer" can help! This is available for updates in your board or in your monday.com update feed


Board Reminders 

While viewing an update, set up the reminder by clicking the bell icon in the top right corner.


Now you can choose exactly when you want to be reminded by selecting one of the pre-set timing options as shown above. When the time comes, your reminder will pop up in your Notification center (bell) and by email (if your email notifications are on). 


Update Feed Reminders

Open up your update feed by clicking its icon in the top right-hand corner. Once your update is open, you can click the bell icon and select one of the pre-set timing options to snooze the update until you're ready!
