Date Flags

Act 2013. Is there a way to set a date in a date field and have act compare it to today’s date and if today’s date is past the defined date, it somehow flags a reminder (changes field color - adds a flag to the file - turns the data field red)? I have the Durkin Impact Suite add on if that makes a difference.

Thanks in advance for any and all help!

Re: Date Flags

Thank you for the reply Mike.

 

While the notes are interesting, they don't fit the need. I have also tried TopLine Alerts and it still does not meet the need. I'll reiterate in case there is someone out there who has an idea...

 

I have a date field

When the date in that field is equal to or exceeded by the current date, I would like an alert

Preferably in act itself, but email would suffice

Re: Date Flags

Thank you Mike. It wasn't exactly what I was looking for, however, it opened up a solution for other things I wanted to do - so THANK YOU!

Re: Date Flags

Gilles - you did it again. I have a number of your add on's (don't know why I didn't see this one), but the combination of Mikes suggestion about Smart Tasks (above) and your notifier program hit the mark 10000%. Thanks again.
