In general, yes, it is possible to set up a function where a record would have a formula checkbox field become checked when a reminder period has passed and the user has not done the necessary action to snooze the reminder.  this is just a general answer to a general question, but yes, QuickBase is very good at date Arithmetic and has a strong sense of "Today", so that though the passage of time, reminders can come due requiring action.  if the actions are not taken, then escalation warning reports can start gong to higher levels of management to alert them to a problem festering if the font line staff did not respond to the required Maintenance required.
