AB stands for "action by," which is often used in emails to communicate when you want something done by a certain time, aka a deadline.
It is typically used in work-related emails when a superior needs an employee to complete a task or project by a time of day or date. The acronym is especially helpful when a person is busy and doesn't have time to type everything out.
There are plenty of things that need to be completed -- both big and small. Examples include purchasing office supplies, putting together a real estate proposal, coordinating musicians for a charity performance, summarizing quarterly earnings, or launching a website.
