Due Dates vs Notifications

Do you use Due Dates and/or Notifications to be reminded of items?

Due Dates are helpful as they are trackable. You can see them on iPhone/iPad/Watch

Notifications without Due Dates are helpful as they don’t clutter the system. However, I’ve not found a way to see a view of Notifications without due dates. And, as designed, they pop up on the iPhone/iPad…then once you’ve looked at the notification, poof, it’s gone. This doesn’t seem reliable.

Is anyone using defer dates? In Forecast view, even if the option to view deferred items is NOT selected, the item still is visible, unless you defer the entire (parent) project.

Look forward to hearing how folks are using this functionality.
