About the macro
If you plan your tasks in Confluence, or if you need to write a report for your boss every week, or if you need to follow the page updates on a regular basis - you should have some way to remember about doing this. But if you have a lot of tasks - you definitely need a reminder tool for them! Handy Reminder is a macro that can either notify you or remind you of any important thing to do on Confluence pages.
Inserting Handy Reminder
- Insert the Handy Reminder macro on the page.
- Enter reminder text.
Check the "Show message next to icon" option if you want to display it next to the reminder icon in the page view mode.
This option is available starting from Handy Macros 1.7.0.
- Specify a date and time for reminder.
Set the frequency of reminding (once or daily, weekly, monthly, etc.)

The date displayed next to the icon changes its colour to orange in seven days before the expiration, and to red in the reminding day.
