In Sitecore, you can schedule to send an email reminder to one or more users. This feature is particularly useful if you have time-sensitive content on your website. For example, if your website contains a special offer that runs out on a certain date, you can use the reminder to send yourself or others a reminder to remove the offer from the website on the appropriate day.

To set a reminder:

  1. In the Content Editor, on the Review tab, in the Schedule group, click Reminder. In the list of options, select Set Reminder.

  2. In the Set Reminder Wizard, on the Welcome to the Set Reminder Wizard page, click Next.
  3. In the Reminder Text dialog box, in the Reminder text field, enter the text that you want to be sent to recipients as a reminder, and then click Next.

To verify the sending date of the reminder, on the Review tab, in the Schedule group, click Reminder. The reminder details are displayed above the Set Reminder option.

To clear the reminder that you have configured, on the Review tab, in the Schedule group, click Reminder, and then click Clear Reminder.

Note

You can only configure one reminder for each item. If you already have one reminder set for an item, and want to set another reminder, you overwrite the earlier reminder.
