Reminder

The Reminder Function faciliates the creation of scheduled reminders so that users don't forget to do important grid actions

A Reminder is essentially an Alert but one that runs according to a Schedule. So, unlike Alerts, it is not trigged by a data (or other) changes, but according to a predefiend date schedule.

note

The Schedule can be either a one-off date, or it can be a Recurring event (e.g. every Monday at 8am, or every day at 17:00).

The Reminder contains 3 elements

  • Header (optional)

  • Message

  • Message Type (Info, Success, Warning, Error)

AdapTable fires an event each time an alert is triggered and this will include if it was triggered by a Reminder so it will be visible in the Alert Toolbar and Tool Panel.

warning

In Version 7 of AdapTable the Reminder section was removed from Adaptable State, as all Schedules are now stored in the Schedule State section instead.

UI Elements

Reminder includes the following UI Elements:

  • Popup - Shows a list of existing Reminders with Edit and Delete buttons. Plus an Add button to start the Reminder Wizard which facilitates the creation and editing of Reminders.

Entitlements

Reminder Entitlement Rules:

  • Full: Everything is available to the User

  • Hidden: Everything is hidden from the User

  • ReadOnly: User will see alerts triggered by Reminders that were listed in Predefined Config but they cannot edit or delete them, nor add others.

FAQ
