  • You can do it by using "Pause for <duration>" option in wf.

    You can add a field named reminder count. On Item Changed create a wf that will check the status of task and if it is not done, send a mail, update increment reminder count field and stop wf. On change wf will again fire then pause for 24 hrs, Again check for status and if not complete send mail. repeat this steps till 24 hrs is remaining.
