Alert Icon for New To-Do's

People are not noticing they have a to-do item assigned to them. Often until the weekly digest email, or when it becomes overdue. It is not intuitive to go to the "My Work" section to check for to-do's. 

It would be good to have a notifier icon in the navigation menu somewhere. Similar to what Pivotal Tracker does - see the bell icon with 17 notifications in the top menu bar of the attached a screenshot.

    I am also a client of aha and i think there is a setting that you can have aha default to a page when you get to aha. You can always have that setting for your users to jump to that default "my work"

    Here is a screenshot of the settings screen for choosing your home page. Setting it to My Work is useful if your workflow involves a lot of to-dos or feature work.

    Sam, I also agree that a badge like in your screenshot, that reminds users of overdue work, is a good idea.
