You may on each refresh of the application load a variable = string - might be steered centrally from a text-file. If the variable contains something, a small message may pop-up on each opening of an application.
Edit: In a more decent style you may instead have a small field showing 'Latest News' or the like.
my wish is not so much task related ...
My very basic requirement is as such:
Let's say I have 1 App which never reloads, but 50 users looking at daily (makes no sense, but for the sake of explanation ...).
I want to shut down the server tomorrow for maintenace work.
How can I send an email to the 50 users telling them that the server will not be available.
The email addresses are stored with the user account on QV Server.
Of course I could type/ copy&paste them into Outlook ... but exactly that it waht I want to avoid (lazy as I am ;-)).
Peter, I like your idea of creating a "Message Board" mechanism.
As in reality the Apps reload at least weekly, with a bit of thinking ahead I could inform most of the users.
The users which do not connect in that period will not notice the shutdown/restart procedure anyways ... most likely ...
So, thanks for your feedback.
Any ideas of automated emailing still appreciated,
