Job tracking Reminder

Good Morning Hal! Another question from your favorite PITA in Ohio!

Do you have any plans to incorporate some sort of job tracking reminder, maybe a pop-up screen on start-up to alert the user of the jobs that are due or are getting close? Kinda like what happens with the Outlooks calendar.

Hi Craig,

The Order Tracker in Morning Flight is fairly basic, no bells and whistles. It probably could use the kind of pop-up reminder you describe. If displaying due dates merely on startup is enough, I suppose we could just have the Tracker pop up in the same configuration you get when you click on the 'Due' heading (where it lists promised jobs only, sorted by due date).

For the record, the chances of you ever attaining the rank of PITA are slim and none. Sorry, never going to happen. All the best,

Awe shucks, Hal.

I would say a pop up on start up, or one that will pop up at a set time before a job is due, maybe 4 hours? I would think you might want to have the option of turning it on and off too.

Craig,

Here it is, as promised. This window will pop up on program start-up whenever there are orders scheduled for delivery either today or tomorrow. When the reminder does pop up, the list includes all promised orders, not just those which caused it to be triggered.

Note that the reminder is Off by default and needs to be activated from the Order Menu. "Show Due Dates on Start-up" is a toggle that turns the reminder on and off.

The new MFSetupG.exe file was uploaded an hour ago. Thanks again for the request, Craig. I think it's a helpful little feature, not at all intrusive.
