Reminders on eDesk display your tasks and calendar items that are pending. The details are drawn from Tasks and Calendars. With the help of reminders on eDesk, you can remind yourself about the appointments, meetings, events and even about your personal activities that you have scheduled.

The details of reminders on eDesk are also drawn from CRM-My Placement, while closing a placement through CRM, HRM-Hiring Management, Employee Management, Departments, Accounting-Assignments, New assignments, and also while creating a new employee from Admin-User Management. The ‘Assignments’ tab under ‘HR data’ tab in all these menus has a check box ‘Remind Me before on eDesk’, with a drop list of various intervals starting from 5 minutes to 14 days. According to the interval selected in the drop list, the reminder will be reflected on the eDesk under ‘Reminders’ section.


Set a Reminder for Task

You can select the option to remind yourself about the task on eDesk while creating the task.   eDesk->Reminders – The reminders for tasks will start from task start date until reminder date.

For example:

If the user creates a new task with today (24 February 2009) as Start Date and Reminder Date as March 01, 2009, then the system displays the reminder in eDesk-> Reminders section from today till March 01, 2009.
