An intrepid manager in one of our departments has created an extensive list that she uses to assign tasks to various people throughout our organization.
Individuals are alerted whenever something is added for them to accomplish, but as many of you know, we all let our due dates lapse.
Now, she's asking for a way to automatically notify the assignee when the task become overdue - a poke - either once, or daily.
It seems that a workflow can accomplish this, but a workflow has two limitations:
1. It runs only when a specific item is updated, eg., an item would have to be updated every day for it to run
2. It runs for only a single item, e.g., a workflow won't run through all items in the library to check status
Is there any GUI way (we don't have programmers on staff) that we can accomplish this for her & her team? (Auto notifications sent to assignees when tasks are overdue?)
