When you enable a Weekly Deadline, Humi will also add a Reminder to help to keep everyone on track. This reminder will be sent out via email and as a notification in the Humi inbox for each member of your team when their Weekly Deadline is approaching.

By default, this reminder is set to 1 day before your weekly deadline, but you can set it to whenever you’d like. Follow the steps below to learn how:

  1. To set the time for your Reminder, select either the Approvers or Employees
  2. Chose how many days before the deadline you’d like the reminder sent out
  3. To add an additional reminder, click the + Reminder button and repeat the steps above
  4. To remove a reminder, click the little trash can icon on the right-hand side of the one you’d like to delete.

Reminders are split into two groups: Approvers and Employees

Each group has a separate list of reminders that can be customized to fit your company’s needs. You can have up to three unique reminders sent to each group per week.

Reminders must be enabled

To disable reminders, you must also disable the Weekly Deadline feature. You can do this by going to the Weekly Deadline section and selecting the No toggle to turn the feature off.
