Set an alarm for a date?

How do I set an alarm or get a notfication when a date occurs? I want to be reminded when someone owes me money sometime in the future.

  • Since there are no timers in Ninox you must use an other trigger: I do it in the trigger after open of the database (when you go in administration mode in the tab “options” of the database,(next to data model)) where i write:

    let z := (select Invoices where duedate >= today());
    let i := join(z.InvoiceNumber, “
    ”);
    let result := dialog(“These Invoices are overdue. Do you want to mail?”, i, [“Yes”, “No”, “Cancel”]);
    if result = “Yes” then
    alert(“You pressed Yes and an email will be send”)
    else
    if result = “No” then
    alert(“You pressed No and nothing will happen”)
    else
    if result = “Cancel” then void end
    end
    end

    Thanks RoSoft_Steven Rooryck. That may work, but it“s way more code then I want to do, and it would still mean I would have to quit and start Ninox to get it tp update. I think there”s a way to sync the calendar with my Mac“s calendar, bu if I recall that is not selective, and if I do that, then I get every date in my DB imported to my Mac Calendar, and that would be overwhelming. The solution is for Ninox to add a reminder alarm for a date function.
