Notifications and Reminders

Comidor Notifications and Reminders (N&R) form the backbone of Comidor Communication. While Comidor offers many standard communication tools (Emails, internal messaging, instant messaging, video calling), the Comidor N&R system puts these all into effect by delivering instant notifications.

Notifications Bar

The Notifications Bar is where you will be notified of any update regarding:

  • A specific task and process
  • New messages
  • New Emails
