Task Notifications

To stay informed and up to date on your task activity, you can receive notifications from Hugo.  

There are three types of task notifications Hugo will send to you from the product. 

  1. Tasks assigned to me
  2. Tasks assigned by you is completed
  3. Task Due

You can also select which channel (Slack or Email) you'd like to receive the notification.   

Tasks assigned to me

This will notify you that another User has assigned a task to you in a document that they have saved. 

Tasks assigned by you is completed

Notifies you that the User has completed a task you assigned them.

Task Due

Notifies you that a task you have been assigned is due. You can trigger this to reminder you: 

  • 1, 2 or 3 hours before it's due
  • 1, 2 or 3 days before it's due
  • 1 week before it's due
Supporting timezones for due dates + time.
If your team is distributed, you will be glad to know that Hugo has multi-timezone support for tasks, as we store all task due dates/times in Coordinated Universal Time (UTC). 

When the due date / time is set for a task, the users' local timezone is converted into its UTC value. Therefore if a task is assigned to a user in another timezone, the due date / time is static.

E.g If you assign a task to a user on another timezone, due on the 30th at 8:00am... If you're in San Francisco and the assignee is in London, the task is due at 08:00 in San Francisco and at 16:00 in London.
