DayBack includes scripts to send alarms as [[email notifications]]

The trick here is to get
FileMaker to run a script every so often- once you can do that, you can have a script that finds upcoming appointments, or finds them and then emails you about them.

In order to run a script like this (every x minutes, for instance), you'll create a script schedule on
FileMaker Pro Server. You'll need a plugin or an OnTimer script trigger if you don't have FileMaker Server. (In some of our installations, we have a simple FileMaker client running a plugin as an unattended agent. This agent machine can then do other automated tasks like email notifications, reports, etc.)

Once you can run a script every X minutes, you can modify the [[Email Notifications | email notifications example script]] in DayBack to send the kind of alert you're looking for.

Note that more elaborate email notifications are built in to %newwin% [[https://www.seedcode.com/complete | SeedCode Complete]], doing things like emailing everyone on a project when the project's status changes.

!! Using Growl

If you're a little adventurous and on a Mac, you can use Growl to send notifications to Mac users on your network (who have growl installed) and/or to their iPhones (which need Prowl installed). Though a little tricky, this is wicked sexy. Thanks to Todd Geist for the %newwin% [[https://www.geistinteractive.com/content/teaching-filemaker-send-alerts-iphone | tutorial]]

!! Alarms via iCal

If you publish your calendar to iCal using Zulu--our calendar sync engine--you can add alarm requirements in FileMaker and iCal will trigger those alarms (as will your iPhone). More on Zulu here: %newwin% [[https://www.seedcode.com/zulu | Zulu Calendar Sync for FileMaker]]
to:
There are no alarms built into DayBack Online, but you can configure your FileMaker Server to send out alarm notifications as emails or SMS. This is actually built into to DayBack for FileMaker and you can learn more about it here: [[DayBackForFileMaker.AlarmsAndReminders | alarms in DayBack for FileMaker]].

In order to run a script like this (every x minutes, for instance), you'll create a script schedule on FileMaker Pro Server 10. You'll need a plugin if you're using an older version of server, something like the ScriptFire plugin from https://www.dacons.net. (In some of our installations, we have a simple FileMaker client running a similar plugin as an unattended agent. This agent machine can then do other automated tasks like email notifications, reports, etc.)

Once you can run a script every X minutes, simply write a
script that looks for appointments coming up in the next X minutes and emails a reminder. You'll also likely want to then tag the event that the reminder has been sent or you could end up sending more than one from the same event.
