Thank Karsten but that doesn't help as that is only relative to creating a new task. If the task needs to be edited and diaried forward for further follow up it defaults to "No reminder".
Thanks for responding in any case.
The system currently allows tasks to be overlooked easily once edited which is a big flaw, as it makes no sense to have that default setting. If you expressly don't want a reminder you should change it, but the whole point of a CRM is to be reminded of your tasks and follow ups.
