I assume you are referring to Desktop notifications, but if not can you clarify please?

If it helps, there are email notifications which you can access and setup by clicking  File> Preferences, and then scroll down to the section titled Email & Mobile Notifications.

Hi Mike,

I do utilize desktop and mobile notifications which are very helpful. I meant to add a feature that will alert or notify me before a task is due or an event is scheduled for. For example, I have a report due at 3:00 pm. If I were able to set an alert an hour or so before that, that would be very helpful. Similar to adding something to your calander and having the option to set up an alert or notification. I'm attaching an example here of what I mean.

So... what became of this? We are having the same need and it is silly that you can't be notified of an event or task coming due. What is worse, it that Glip only seems to recognize days, which end at 12 midnight, so if I have a task coming due at 3pm on Thursday, Glip will not show it overdue till Friday. Currently the only thing that is remotely like that is I will get an email every morning for overdue tasks, but otherwise I can only see the overdue status in Glip - but I must purposely go look. We work with teams, so this needed functionality should work there, as well as in personal tasks and calendar. Is this BASIC functionality something we can expect soon or no. I know Glip is free, but we are Premium subscribers and it would seem that Glip should have this functionality.

Hello! Our Glip team is working on making our notification settings better. I don't have many details but in the 2nd half of the year, we will be rolling out some changes in this area.

This reply was created from a merged topic originally titled glip task notifications/reminders.

timed reminders- is there a setting already that allows you to set up reminders to pop up at certain times of the day? I know you can get the email that has a to do list on it, but i'm looking, for example, a 4pm reminder to check the schedule for the next day, or a 10am reminder to make a call to xyz client... we could use outlook to do it but we would love to keep all comms and tasks in one place... thanks in advance!

your reply just proves or shows my point of it being a year since it was mentioned and after the second half of the year as Saadet mentioned above and still nothing.
