Here, you will need to give your schedule a name and choose the form template for the audit you will be scheduling. 

Optionally include email addresses of users that you wish to receive update notifications via email on the progress of the scheduled audits.

If an audit is not completed within the time frame specified, the audit status will appear as Overdue. 

If you have selected the option to Auto Update to Missed, the audit status will be changed to missed. 

In both cases, audits will still be able to be completed and the status will update to reflect this.
