    Hi, Love jotform by the way!!


    but I need to be able to create check lists for a business that have to happen daily. My questions are:


    1.can alerts be set up so a form essentially has a daily deadline time and if not completed by this time then an alert can be sent via email or sms txt to managers to let them know it hasn’t been done? 

    2.Is there any way to make a form “pop up” and remind a user that it needs to be completed on their device or via an email? For employees who have to complete the form.


    if there is any way to do either of these or a work around that would be flipping amazing!!!! 

    thanks so much, Angus

    Hello Angus - You can set a reminder email with the recipients added to it. You can send yourself or a colleague daily, weekly or monthly emails to remind filling a form.

    Please refer to this guide below and see if that achieves the requirement you're looking for:

    Unfortunately, this isn't possible at the moment. Note that email notifications will only be triggered if the form is submitted, and there is no option to monitor the forms if it is not filled yet.
