Reminders are most effective when a user has enabled the startup option "Open Alerts Automatically" else a user may miss any reminders assigned to them.
You can establish reminders within the Notes tab of many Acctivate windows.
- In the window you are in select the Notes tab.
- Choose + New
- Type your note.
- To assign to a specific user, choose their ID in the Followup by drop down. Once selected, you'll also have the ability to specify a due date and time.
- When finished, click Save and Close
- The reminder will now appear in Alerts > Business Alerts window under the Reminder tab. You have the option to filter on Type, Due date, and Assigned to.
