Can FileMaker Task a Field?


I use Filmaker Pro 7 on a Mac Powerbook G4 Mac OSX 10.5.8


I would like to make more efficent use of my current database. Currently I use my data base to log my customers contact information and notes about the appointments I have. Very simple not very complex. I have seen the product ACT!. and I like the tasking feature where the program will send you an alert to contact someone on a certian day.


How could I incorporate this feature into my database. I currently use a field called "next Contact" in which I manually put in the date in which i want to call the particular company back, but I have to remember to "Find" these companies each day.


It would make my life much easier if I could have my current database formulate these into a daily excel sheet for review or have an email sent to myself or blackberry with a list of companies I tasked myself to call.


Can this be done with my current version or even the new version? Feedback would be appreciated.
