PBC Request e-mail notifications and reminders



  • Mike

    Hi Rebecca!

    Thanks for the questions. Happy to tackle these for ya.
    At this time, reminders only go to the "assignee", but if the request is in a review state, technically the "assignee" is the approver. Currently there is no way to change that, but eventually we do plan to make the "Notify Others" field to be more akin to a "watcher" instead. There's no timeline for this release but its on our long-term roadmap. Regarding auto-reminders, we do have manual bulk reminders planned for release later this year. After that, our next item would be to tackle automation. I've connected your feedback here with our Product Team. You can follow along on your requests, here:

    In the meantime, let me know what questions you have or if you need anything else. Thanks again and have a great rest of your day!

    Would like to raise this similar issue.  When a request has an assignee and an approver, if the assignee completes his portion on September 5, and the request due date is September 30, the approver does not receive any notification until September 30, and that process runs overnight, so by the time they are able to respond, it is already past due.  Would like to see the approver receive a notification that they have a task as soon as the original assignee completes their portion.

    In addition, as was stated in the original request, still have not seen any automation around reminders.
