Prioritizing your Tasks and Events
A Green WarnZ. No action required. Relax!
A Yellow Caution. Reminds you to prepare for the Recycling Collection.
An Amber Warning. Time to take action so your passport is renewed before its expiry.
A Red Expired WarnZ. This WarnZ is Overdue or Past Due. You should never see one of these if you prepared and took action during the Caution and Warning periods.
An Information WarnZ. A 'nice to do' action or event that doesn't have a 'hard' deadline'. It would be good to choose a new Audiobook soon!
