Sending emails reminders automatically in Enterprise version

Hi there. I'm searching the forums but can't find an answer for my needs. We have an Enterprise account, and want/need to send a remainder to our costumers when certain event occurs (time based): need to update their contract, need to update their software license, etc.

We can do it manually, but for that we need to trigger a button manually EACH DAY. Is there a way to automatically trigger an script and send the emails, say once a day?

  • There is also a trigger after open,on opening the database. It’s in the settings in the options tab newt to the Data model.

    Thanks for the answer, RoSoft_Steven , but we are looking for a functionality that "auto-triggers" every n-days. For example, each Monday at 8:00 am launch this script, search for these records and send these emails.

    We're taking a look at Zappier and Integromat. Maybe the solution is based in a third party integration...

    Hi Javier

    I have used Zapier to do this. Here is a previous post giving step-by-step instructions

  • Hi Javier,

    You’ll need to the API to trigger timed emails to send as Ninox can’t self-execute a script unless someone is inside the interface.

    make.com (formerly integromat) make this very easy allowing you to have a scheduled scenario that runs at a frequency you set (e.g daily/hourly). On each execution, this could run a script from the /exec API endpoint, or simply update a yes/no switch in Ninox which has an “on update” trigger with the code that sends out your emails.

    Either way, it’s important that you record when emails are sent to ensure a failed execution or double execution doesn’t cause no/duplicate emails to be sent out.
