Jacob is working on a project. He is assigned a task which has a daily recurrence. He has missed the recurrence and has not completed the task. Therefore, the next day when he comes and logins, he sees the messages in the audit trail. He then views the full context of the recurrence like the plan date, deadline date. He also receives the message saying that he has missed the last occurrence.
