    Set up a reminder. click on the little bell like symbol and you can set reminders. if you are an admin , you can set for more than one person.

    is this a 1 time reminder? or will it automatically send a reminder anytime the task is 3 days until due?

    The Reminders are checked early morning Pacific Time Zone. If they match the criterion, they will send. If you change the date to the future, it will fire again when it matches the criterion.

    This is per row, so multiple Reminders might be sent on the same day for different rows.

    The image above is misleading.

    If there is a Date type column, you can set the Reminder to use that instead of a fixed date. 

    Clicking the on link will open a selection for various lead/lags from the given date.
