Due date notification
If a task is late (the due date has passed), please make sure to send a notification to both the owner and anyone related to the task (coworkers, team leader,...).
The due date email notification has rolled out to all users worldwide. Thanks for your feedback, and please continue to contribute more suggestions and ideas!

The lack of notification to the user when their task is coming due or is late makes the users treat the deadlines in the tool as soft deadlines, and then the project manager (me) has to nag them to get their work done. Well, some of the users are self-starters and ready to update their tasks without constant pestering.

Yes - notifications are ESSENTIAL!

Essential - quite useless without notifcations

We need this!!! If you only add one thing, need a notification when a task is due.
Also need notifications similar to Outlook calendar where you can set them to remind you in advance.
yes, we should have it

I'm not rolling this out to the organization until there are email notifications. Please address.

I'll second that, there needs to be some kind of notification or email when a task is coming close to the due date.

Agreed. Just showing it being late on the chart doesn't really work well. It assumes I will be looking at only the chart to see what is late.
I would like this as an optional setting as well.
I like this but it should be an optional configuration.
It could be set 24 hours before the due for example.
