Client Task - automatic emails/request
Hi there,I have client tasks set up in my workflows where an email requesting for information is set to go out during the month, but this automatic email seems to be having an issue lately, unsure of the reason. It has happened with a few of my clients, and I don’t know if they’re receiving the emails if I manually send them from the task either. Please advise.Thank you.

Why can I not see more than 40 work items in the Work View?
If there are more than 40 work items on the work tab, I cannot scroll through them. I get a blue circle in the far left corner as if it is thinking/processing, but nothing happens and it does not go past the first 40 work items. The only way I can find what I need is resort the work under “Name” and hope it falls in the last 40 items, or I have to do a search (hoping I guess the correct key words) to find a specific work item. However, if I need to scroll through all the items there is no way I can do that if it is more than 40 work items.** This is a recent issue - meaning I was able to scroll past 40 before - this has happened in the last week to two weeks.
Hi there, I trust you are well.Firstly, I am currrently experiencing a work view error, when I go on a client and I want to view the work not completed. It doesn’t show all my work, it will only show 1 or if more than 1 it will show minimal. This is new and would like assistance to be able to view my work items with no problems.Secondly when I view work items, the system is very slow to load work items and slightly glitches, with my colleagues they don’t experience this but I am. Kindly assist as this problem is not making the system user friendly for me at this stage.I would like this to be sorted as soon as possible.
