Email a Task Reminder Versus just a Pop Up Window

Sales Productivity (Notes/Activities/Calendar )

Would like to be able to send an email reminder on the day of a task instead of just having a pop-up window reminder. Our sales force is not truly "mobile" with an integrated PDA at this time so they are requesting that reminders be emailed to them. Can this be done in conjuncion with the pop up reminder?

    As part of Spring '16 we are releasing the ability to send email alerts for activities (tasks and events) when they are part of a process, workflow rule, milestone, approval process or flow. I recognize that this feature doesn't completely address the functionality requested here, but it may help address some use cases.
