How to create pop up reminders
Thank you for taking the time to report an issue.
What's wrong... Please write below.
It must look similar to Outlook's calendar where you can dbl click and enter "to-do tasks, and memo's into the calendar"
It must also be able to print each days tasks, for the day, week, month,etc and able to have 'reminders' which pop up for reminders...
1. A reminder system. A constant recurring reminder, the time period of which can be adjusted by the user to suit the situation of the client. I.e. for a hot lead, the user would choose "one week" reminders, and then if this lead went cold, they could change this in a form to "three month" reminders.
Values could either be based on the 1st contact date entry, or the actual date of modification by user.
2. Whether the best way to do this is linking in to outlook or by creating a login form for each user, with pop up alerts for each client?
3. I wish to create a sales in progress form that will auto-complete fields from the "vendors" table, and the "clients" table, plus also add a couple more data entry boxes (such as agreed price), all of which would save as a record in the "Sales in Progress" table.
want to be able give the user as option to chose whether radiation was | completed or not. I know how to connect the main form to a subform and have | the subform pop up, but I don't want the whole subform to pop-up -- only one |
I wish to close them both afterwards.
I open the second pop up with acdialog and after that I placed
a docmd command to close the form.
I get the error: "The action can not be carried out while processing form or report 2285".
How can I solve it ?
Function AddOutLookTask() Dim appOutLook As Outlook.Application Dim taskOutLook As Outlook.TaskItem Set appOutLook = CreateObject("Outlook.Application") Set taskOutLook = appOutLook.CreateItem(olTaskItem) With taskOutLook .Subject = "This is the subject of my task" .Body = "This is the body of my task." .ReminderSet = True .ReminderTime = DateAdd("n", 2, Now) ' Set to remind us 2 ' minutes from now. .DueDate = DateAdd("n", 5, Now) ' Set the due date to ' 5 minutes from now. .ReminderPlaySound = True 'add the path to a .wav file on your computer. .ReminderSoundFile = "C:\Win95\media\ding.wav" .Save End With End Function
This is working fine, however, I would like to be able to change this code so that the SUBJECT, BODY, AND DATE AND TIME of the task / reminder comes from data entered in the Reminders Form, how would I do this
So in total I need the dlookup for 1. ID (done), and 2. From (this is the Date in the Form).
I have inserted an "add outlook reminder" button to my database, this is working perfectly. Now, I would like the "body" of the outlook task to get its data from a list box on my reminders form
it is currently getting the "body" from a text box on the reminders form, which works fine, but instead of the user entering the body, I would like the body to populate from alistbox (not a selected item in the list box, just every record in the listbox)
