Using the New Microsoft Lists
For the example we setup here we used the "Incidents" template. This template is mostly for urgent or critical incidents that occurred, like calling 911 or an earthquake knocked our your power. You get an idea of the kind of organization you can have based off status, dates, etc.
In addition, the option to have "conditional formatting" was available with SharePoint Lists and made it's way to here. This can be extremely helpful to have colors quickly organize what's important to which department.
In addition to our list, we setup a Flow that runs once a day. Every morning an email goes out to the folks that have a list item assigned to them due tomorrow and any due today.
