Setting the Due Date
While working with a request, you have the option to set a due date for it. This due date is a deadline by which the request should be completed.
Setting a due date for a request is important because it helps you and your team to prioritize tasks and manage your workload effectively. It also helps to ensure that the subrequest is completed within a reasonable timeframe, which is essential for meeting overall deadlines.
To set a due date for a request, you simply need to select a date from the "Due date" field in the request form. You can choose the date from a calendar or manually enter it in the field. Once you have set a due date, it will be visible in the request details.
It is important to keep in mind that the due date is not a fixed deadline and can be changed if necessary. If you find that the original due date is no longer possible or that circumstances have changed, you can update the due date to reflect the new timeline.
The clock icon changes color from green to red when the request becomes overdue.
