      Setting Reminders

      Post

           Hi all,

            

           Is there a way to set FM Pro to remind me I need to make a call? I have a field that is next contact date, what I would like is for it to pop up and remind me somehow, is this possible?

            

           Many thanks

            

            

           Nick

               It's possible, but the design of your database and when/how you want your reminders to appear make a big difference in how this would be set up.

               One way is to set up a script that is performed every time you open the file. The script can perform a find, entering criteria in that next contact date field and listing any found that meet criteria specified in the script. It might find all records where the date is the same as today, a day in the future some time this week, next week, or ...
