    Yes, I would love a way for Wrike to remind me or a team member when something is close to being due and has not yet been completed; to send that alarm by way of popups, chime notifications, email, inbox notifications, etc.

    Me too.  I used Smartsheet, which had a notification/alarm feature that was quite useful.

    All of my Task management apps have this feature (alerts or alarms for date critical tasks), except for Wrike.  The lack of this feature prevents me from utilizing Wrike for my personal, individual task management.  I would prefer to use Wrike for both group project type task and personal, individual tasks, and pull them all together, but it is more difficult than I anticipated.  Even so, I believe I could work around it if there was an alert/alarm feature.

    The alarm feature should be user selectable for the time ahead of task to alert.  Much as Outlook's task are set up.

    Hi guys, this is a really good idea, I can already think of many ways I could use it myself!

    It's been logged for review by the Product Team, if and when I have an update or feedback I'll post here.

    Keep voting and providing use-cases so our team can best understand the request 🙌

    Our team would really appreciate this feature. With dozens of tasks due every day, it sometimes hard to sort through them. To be reminded of the urgent tasks by a notification, we would be certain that the important, time sensitive tasks don't get lost.

    An email or text alert could also work to notify of an upcoming deadline.  In any event, a reminder is needed to make Wrike an effective task manager.

    Along with task pop-ups, we would like to see a pop-up reminder when a task is marked "completed" that tells the user to archive the task.

    I would love if a few minor improvements were made to the 'importance' feature in Wrike! We would love if the 'importance' exclamation point showed up to the left of the task in our dashboards. This is showing to the right today, which gets lost because we read left to right. It's also not prominent enough - in order for us to skim through a list of a couple dozen tasks and see this, it needs to be larger or the entire task needs to be in red.

    As someone with oversight of multiple projects, getting notified when a task has reached its deadline but not been completed would be very useful. Im not actively involved in every task in every project, so knowing when deadlines are missed, and by whom, would help me monitor my project leaders. Getting notified about deadline related events seems like it should already be there.

    Agreed! There are key tasks within our project workflow that need immediate attention, and when those tasks are not completed they are blockers for others getting work done. Having some kind of notification ping would be immensely helpful!

    Hi guys, thanks for the continued votes and input on this idea.

    I'm wondering if Staring tasks/notifications and Snoozing Inbox notification might help. Often when I have a task that I know I need to check up on, I Star the Task and then I have a list of Tasks that I want to keep an eye on.

    Alternatively, if I get an Inbox notification and I want to check up on it later, I snooze it to a more suitable time and date so it pops back into my inbox.

    This is not an exact solution to the above request but might be worth checking out if you haven't already. Stephanie has an interesting post about  Inbox reminders that might be of interest too 👍

    Yes a reminder feature would be of great benefit to me and my colleagues, currently i'm having to duplicate tasks in Outlook to give me this feature. If a reminder time could be added to a task on it's due date with a pop-up notification and chime alerting me at the time, it would do away with this duplication.

    It would be great if you can have a time option for when a task needs to get done so I can eliminate having to add appointments in two places.

    and a reminder when its due - or when setting up should have option to push a reminder 15 min prior as a reminder.

    and when it reminds it should be like a time clock with alarm sound going.

    I would like to add to my previous comment, if tasks are by time, then in the morning we can see what to do first next according to time to sort the day productivity even better.

    I would really like to see some sort of reminder system... pop up, chime, etc.  That would happen 2-3 days BEFORE a task is due... or completely customize-able.  Please Please add this feature!
