You might want to delegate tasks due that day to coworkers. With this proposed solution, you might overlook the task that is due on the 2nd to last day. In my case, ordering the company lunch for the last day of the month. That would be a bad thing to forget to delegate :(

The reminder will reminder you only a day before i.e. Sunday which is not good. You need to be reminder the workday before which is the Friday 28/07/2017
