Requests not showing in Welcome Screen

I have a sheet with tasks that are assigned to different staff members including myself but when I go to my home page it is showing that there are 0 requests for me and that I've sent 0 requests. Am I doing something wrong on my sheet? I thought this would show upcoming/past due tasks. Is that not the case?

    Hi @Elena_Wells

    I hope you're well and safe!

    The Request area will show Update Requests and Approval Requests.

    Make sense?

    I hope that helps!

    Be safe and have a fantastic weekend!

  • Okay...Maybe this is a really stupid question......

    But what is the difference between a task being assigned to you and a request?

    I had the exact same question as OP. I always wonder what I have to do to get these assigned tasks to show up on my welcome screen as a requests for me and as requests I've sent.

    I just don't understand the difference in the terminology.
