How can I set up Renewal Reminders for writs about to expire?

Renewal reminders can be set for a given number of days prior to the expiration of a writ, to remind you to renew. The organization administrator must first set them for the organization, then individual users can select the option in their User Details.

Once set, Renewal Reminders will display in the Renewal Reminders tab of the Dashboard.
