Can a Custom Dialogue Box Be triggered on a certain date

Post

Hi

I have 3 questions

1. I am trying to figure out how to trigger a custom dialogue box when a date is reached but I dont want to trigger a hundred pop ups if a hundred records as the same trigger date

Example:  Date reached: 6/30/2012  Message: PM's are Due please check PM Due Layout for List of upcoming PM's

 

2. Is it possible to launch a script on the desktop from FilemakerGo, I have a Back up button that I want to be able to click on and it will back up the solution on the desktop.  I do have a timer script that works find but I also need to back up manually if needed.

 

3. Is their a way that I can add a button to the solution that will pop up a message asking where to save the backup solution. (Desktop Only)

 

How or where can I get information on how to do the above question.  I am just learning scripting so any help would be appreciated.

Thanks
