Question on how to alert when user enters data


     Hi everyone,

     Wondered if someone can help me?  I'm kind of new to Filemaker and I have created a database that works off of Filemaker GO so that users can fill out information on a table called Diary from their phone.  The database is stored on a Filemaker Server.


     My question is, is there a way to create a script that can send an alert to a particular email address if the user of the phone app doesn't fill out information from their Diary table for a certain amount of time (if they haven't filled anything out for the last 24 hours)? 


     On a similar note, if such a script is too difficult, is there a way to create a report that shows that user's answers for the day, but can this report be sent out automatically to an email address rather than having the Filemaker developer create a report each day?


     And if the answer is yes to either question, is there an example of such a script somewhere?

     Thank you so much!
