    Run script once daily in FileMaker

      Greetings.

       

      I was just wondering is it possible to schedule a script to run once daily. I have enabled users to save order for later. They have to input the date when to save order by . I want to have a script which would run daily to go through all the saved for later items and send email to user 3 days before their save by date.

       

      I believe for this I have to schedule script on FileMaker server to run once daily and loop through the orders to check how many days left to be remained as saved. If days = 3 than send email.

       

      Has anyone done something similar before. What would be best way to carry out something like this.

       

      Many Thanks.
