Release Focus

 Action Item Alerts (BETA)

Similar to Notifications (BETA), Action Item Alerts feature adds a new dropdown panel and counter to Enterprise and WebStorm dynamic navigation.

This panel lists a user's open action items. This will help users complete their tasks faster, ensure that action items do not get forgotten, and speeds up the process of finding and developing the best ideas, proposals and projects!


  • Action Item Alerts may be added on Enterprise and/or WebStorm level
  • Displays action items for:
    • Scorecards action items
    • Proposal action items
    • Project To Do action items (BETA)
  • When action items are completed, the alert will be cleared from the list and the counter will decrease.
  • More information about Action Item Alerts can be found here.
