We have enhanced the Tasks app for all Upvise Business accounts with reminders and notifications.
Reminder of due date
The owner of a task receives a reminder by email on the due date for the task. The reminder is sent at 00:00 on the due date. Remember to set your timezone in the Settings of your web account.
Owner assignment notification
When you assign a task to someone in your company, this person automatically receives a notification by email.
These two functionalities have been activated by default for all users, so you should now be receiving emails for your task reminders and assignments. Administrators can change the default settings in the Manage Apps section of your web account under the Notifications tab. Note that the setting applies to all users of the company account, and not for an individual user.
We currently support only notifications by email, and not by SMS. To use Upvise you need a data connection and therefore your phone can support reading emails. On the latest smartphones whether iPhone, Google Android or Blackberry, you are also alerted by a beep or vibration when you receive an email, which means that receving an SMS is really the same user experience as receiving an email. Thus SMS notifications are not absolutely necessary.
