Reminder calls attention to upcoming appointments in several ways:
Yes. To include additional icons use Edit|Options in the menu. Grafic files (Windows Bitmap Format, RGB encoded) can be used if they are 16 pixels high and 17 pixel wide. It is recommended to only use the 16 windows® standard colors. The color pink will be transparent.
If you are using Reminder in the network, the user defined icons of the common Reminder installation are used. Locally defined icons are disregarded.
The data file can contain up to 99 categories with an unlimited number of appointments.
Reminder creates optionally a backup (extension ".bak") of the data file once a day when you close the program. Since this backup file is on the same hard disk as the original file, this offers only limited protection.
Your appointments and categories are stored in a file with the extension ".rem" (default is "noname.rem"). You may want to save your data file periodically (e.g. once a day) on disk.
If you are using Reminder in network mode, you should also make a backup copy of the common data file with the extension ".rnz". This can be done by the usual nightly backup of all data on the server.
This is correct. The view in advance allows you to see all appointments for the next days (appointment A). This includes the appointments with a pre-warning time beginning in between these days (appointment B).
Yes. To schedule appointments together with other users open the dialog Edit|Options.
Then activate the network option on the network tab. Now the data is stored in
a common data file (extension «rnz») instead of a local data file
If you declare an appointment to be private, other users in the network cannot see the contents of that specific appointment. All they can see is that the time period is occupied.
The shareware version of Reminder allows to test the network mode with two users.
More information can be found in the documentation of Reminder under the entry "network support". You do not need to modify any setting on your server.
You user name is stored in the registry of the operating system. Therefore a reinstallation
or hard disk change results in the loss of your user name.
Unless you unregistred your user name in the registry before, Reminder will not allow you to
register with the same name. Reminder assumes that the name is occupied by another user.
Reminder 5.20 and higher versions allow data exchange with an OLE interface. Various functions permit to access the data in Reminder. You can add, edit or change categories and appointments and send notes to other users. The following code is an example, written in VBA (short for Visual Basic for Applications) and run with MS-Word that can be representative for many (often visual) development environments.
Sub note_send() Rem sends a note to a user (only available if net mode is on) Dim Reminder As Object Set Reminder = CreateObject("Reminder99.Application") Dim id As Long Dim find As Boolean find = Reminder.User_FindFirst If find Then id = Reminder.User_ID MsgBox (Reminder.Note_Send("From Winword", id, "By opening this document a new appointment was added to Reminder.")) Reminder.User_FindClose End If Rem MsgBox (Reminder.GetLastError) Reminder.ExitReminder Set Reminder = Nothing End Sub
For more infomation see the the zip archive "dokumentation of the OLE interface"
Close Reminder first. Then select Start|Settings|Control Panel. Now select "Software" if using Windows® 95/98 or "Add/Remove" if using Windows® NT. In the appearing dialog select "Reminder 99" and click on the button "Add/Remove". Reminder will now be uninstalled. This includes entries in the Registry of Windows® and the possibly existing link in the "Start-Up" program group.
Please confirm the questions the system asks you during the delete (e.g. delete the file "remind??.dll"?).
You then may have to manually remove the program folder of Reminder (usually "C:\Program Files\ceytec software\Reminder 99") containing only the data file (e.g. "noname.rem").
