Timer Event for Reminders. Display a Popup.

In this video, I'll show you how to create a popup form that will show you a reminder at regular intervals whenever you have customers in your table that need a followup. This same technique of using a form timer event can be used for all kinds of things, like sending emails, pulling down data from a web site, processing orders, you name it.

Melody from Berlin, Germany (a Gold Member) asks: I would like my database to notify me once an hour if there are any new sales leads in the system that I need to respond to. Is there any way to have Access pop up a message for me?


I'll show you how to make a button to open up just customers that need a followup, add a countdown timer to your form so you can see it counting down 5... 4... 3... 2... 1... with a PAUSE option. And I'll show you how to make it so that the notification doesn't interrupt your work flow. You can still keep working in the form you were on without the popup disturbing your typing.
