Due Date Tab

Each activity in the Process Timeline can have unique time limit/due date options. Process Director runs as a virtual directory in IIS and processes all time related events like due dates when activity is present on the system (e.g. a login).

To force this activity checking more often, you can schedule a command in the Windows Scheduler.

Due Date Is

Set Due Date to Form Field

This will enable the user to specify a due date on the form using a Date Picker for that activity in the Process Timeline process.
