    Auto reminders

    gjbdjc

      Has anyone used filemaker for "reminders", either emails or pop-up test.

       

      I'm looking to have the system send a reminder at a  certain time of the day, to notify us of incomplete items.

       

      So at 3:30pm the system sends an email telling us that Project 1, 5 and 6 are incomplete?

       

      Any thoughts?

          If your file is hosted by FileMaker Server, a server schedule can be set to run a script at a specific time of day.

           

          It can perform find for your "incomplete" projects assuming that there is criteria that can be specified to find such records.

           

          Once found, it can use either send mail with the SMTP option or an email plug in to send out email notifications to the relevant parties.
