If the option is on, the employees,who have been assigned to the activities, which lie within the time gap between the current date plus X (e.g. 3) days, will be warned by e-mail. For instance, today is the 15th of July and 3 days are entered, then the period is from 15.07 to 18.07.

The first e-mail notification lists all activities from the project start up e.g. 17.07. Then new activities will be added which means that if the information, e.g. a1, related to a certain activity has been already sent, the employees will not get e-mails about this activity that lies in the mentioned time gaps.

Note: You can automate an e-mail notification by creating a scheduled task in Start / Control Panel / Administration / Scheduling.
