Watchdogs can bring attention not only to important dates but also anything else

When you need to keep a deadline,  be reminded of an employee birthday, the end date of warranties, or be reminded of changing any information in the system, you can use Watchdogs.

You can set them for practically anything. It does not matter if you need to be reminded of the end date of a legal contract, employee or customer birthday, or approved invoice. The Watchdog will also send you an email to your Inbox; therefore, you cannot miss anything.
