In Alasco, you will be notified of outstanding tasks via the number on the task mailbox in the menu bar at the top of the screen and in the "Tasks in progress" field on the dashboard.

In addition, to be reminded of your tasks, even when you are not logged into Alasco, you can activate daily e-mail notifications using the switch button in the Notifications section. You can set when the e-mail notifications are sent.


Absence and substitute

If you are absent for a certain period, you can activate this absence in your personal settings. If you have activated the setting, you will bear the status "Out of office", and you can select a substitute from all other users in Alasco to take over your existing and newly assigned tasks during this period.


The substitute settings always refer to the currently selected account. If you work in several Alasco accounts, please define your absence and respective substitute in each account.

Remember to deactivate the absence setting when you are back on duty.


Please note that a user acting as a substitute cannot activate their absence setting.


Region and languages

Alasco can be used in either English or German, and you can adjust the time zone to your region.
