To Do Tab (Members)

Note: The tab pages to display, and the order in which they appear, are controlled via Preferences.

A To Do entry is simply a reminder of something the that needs to be done for this member. It doesn't normally represent something the member personally needs to do, because the members don't normally see this data, but you can use it any way you wish.

Note: If you want to be notified of open To Do items when MemberTies starts, the Login Preference to display open To Do's on startup must be turned on
