Setting up reminders RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm currently working with Microsoft Project Professional 2013. Trying to find out a way to have alerts or reminders set up when certain dates approach. Is there any way to do this? And if so, how?

  • Weiserman --

    If your organization is using Project Server 2013, then the answer is yes, since Alerts and Reminders are built-in functionality that ships with the software.  If you are using the Microsoft Project 2013 desktop software only, then the answer is no.  There is no alerts and/or reminders functionality built in the desktop app.  The only way to address this, I believe, would be for you to write a macro in the VBA programming language that would send alerts and/or reminders to your team members.  Hope this helps.
