Please see the following page for details.

Add an alert configuration

Click the Add button in the upper right corner of the list to display a dialog box.

Alert target status

Status categories or individual statuses can be set.

Alert target field

Set whether the field that triggers the alert is the start or finish date-time.

Hours to start alert

Sets the number of hours to be alerted if the current time is hours past the Alert target field.

The set alert conditions are displayed in the info panel at the bottom of the dialog.
