This blog gives you a brief description of Task Deadline Reminder. This module sends an auto reminder to responsible user or employee of a task if the deadline is today. A Cron job will run every day and search for a task whose due is today and send the reminder email to an employee. This help user or employee to complete their work before the deadline
Project Task Form - Configuration of Task Deadline Reminder
This module aim at reminding user or employee to complete their work before the deadline. There is no need to remind all tasks. So first we need to set which task has to be reminded. For this, we have created a checkbox field named ‘Reminder’. After installing this Task Deadline Reminder module, you can see a field named ‘Reminder’. If this Reminder is ticked, then the only task will be considered for the reminder.
Automation Scheduled Action - Cron Job
A scheduled action is needed to work action automatically. By installing this module, you can see scheduled action named ‘Task Deadline Reminder’ under Settings >Automation > Scheduled action. By default, we have created scheduled action with interval unit with Days and interval number is 1
You can create any scheduled action in Settings > Automation > Scheduled actions. Here you can schedule interval units such as minutes, hours, days, work days, week, months for each action. The main thing which has to be taken into consideration in scheduled action is missing of occurrence due to many reasons like server problem etc. To solve this, we have a checkbox named ‘Repeat Missed’. By ticking this checkbox, the missed occurrence is executed when server restart.
Email to User/Employee
If reminder checkbox is ticked, then email is sent automatically to corresponding user or employee if the deadline is today. This is the format of the email template. You can see a link in this mail. By clicking View Now link, it will directly forward to Odoo login page. From there, user/employee can log in with their email address and password and can view their task
