Question: the Notification Task will ping the person/group up until the End Date of the contract and not forever? (Frequency option)

Answer: If requires manual completion is "checked off" in the notification task, a recipient of the task or the task owner must manually mark it complete.  If the task is not completed after the notification is sent for due date the task will become over due and the overdue notifications will start to send.  If this option is not selected, the system automatically marks the task complete after each send.
