Request Reminders: New Feature in Project Online

In preparing for exam 70-348: Managing Projects and Portfolios with Microsoft PPM, I noticed a new feature in Resource Center that I quickly shared with the PPM Works team.

Note: Alerts and reminders must be turned on in your environment to see this feature.

Request Reminders allows Resource Managers to subscribe to alerts for engagement requests that have been submitted for resources they manage.
