    She insists that you should have told her.

    1. She insists that you should have told her.

    2. She insisted that you should have told her.



    We normally put should + Root V after when a that clause is used as o objective of such verbs like insist, suggest, demand....

    What I'm wondering is if we can indicate the past tense like the above given sentences.

    Re: She insists that you should have told her.

    Yes, you can- it depends on the time of the insisting for me.
