What Is the Difference Between an Alert and a Reminder?

Both alerts and reminders can be set up for tasks, however, they serve different purposes. As an assignor (the individual who assigns a task to another member of the team), you have the option to select an alert so you will receive a notification in the event that a task has been "completed" or is "past due." A reminder is to be used by the individual completing the tasks. Reminder notifications can be set to be sent a number of hours, days or weeks before an event. Reminders can be emailed, sent via SMS or pop-up when you are logged into your Zola account.
