Popup on Partner "Start task" when Campaign Waiting on Sponsor Action

It is not clear to partner's when a campaign is waiting for Sponsor's to complete approvals/tasks. Currently, the partner is able to click the "Start task" button, but nothing happens. The icon at the top of the screen is small and not obvious to many partners. Add a popup on the next "Start task" to inform the partner that a sponsor task or action is required.

    We intend to review the UI to determine if there is a better way to make the "start task" more obvious to the partner.
