Repeating Reminders

Having the option to repeat a reminder would make MyInfo much more useful for scheduling tasks.

I would like to vote for this too.
I use this at work to remember when to print my pay stub. We use Outlook and it is not very flexible. I currently do this with a diary document, on the 15th/end of the month, three days before that date I set the reminder date, If 15th/end on a weekend, the calculation shifts to the Friday before. It is a complicated calculation which Lotus Notes handled well. Outlook not so much. Me and the MyInfo Diary just a pain to remember to set it every month.
Thanks,
Ed

I think the best user interface I have seen for repeating reminders is the one in Mozilla Thunderbird. In that program I can set a reminder to repeat two days after the last Thursday of every month (which is very useful).

Mozilla Thunderbird is open source so you could look to see how they have achieved this. There might be a few good ideas in there. :wink:

Thanks for the pointer to Thunderbird. I'll see if I can build my own from what I find.
Thanks,
Ed
