It would be very useful if the user had the ability to attach multiple reminders to tasks, that will alert a specific time and day.
Unfortunately this isn’t possible right now. However, if you use the MyTasks page correctly, you’ll always be reminded about your upcoming tasks a week before they call due.
With all your new tasks, be sure to mark for Today, Upcoming or Later, depending on the due date. Anything marked for later will automatically move to upcoming 7 days from the due date.
Hope his helps.
I do it the way Paul is also doing it, but I saw some of my team members do the following.
Use different subtasks with different due dates to remind yourself. Of course make sure to assign these sub-tasks to yourself and they will remind you to do the over all task
