??__I Have A Calendar Question__??
« on: August 11, 2009, 10:50:36 PM »
I've been staring at the Online Manual and I'm just not seeing this...

SMF 1.1.10/Default

Is there a way that the administrator can configure an event on the calendar to PM or email him so many hours/days/etc. in advance of the event as a reminder that it's approaching?  This would be similar to what Entourage (Microsoft Office) does with its calendar feature.  (It uses a pop-up on the screen, however.)

We actually have "cyber parties" on our forum for birthdays, graduations, etc. and a lot of work goes into preparing for them (if you can believe that).  It would be nice if, when I become particularly scattered, a scheduled "reminder" could arrive in either my inbox or email to jog my memory to prepare and to remind others to do likewise. 

Can this already be done and I'm just missing how, or should I post this in the Mods Request forum?

 :)

AFAIK there isn't anything like that on the Mod Site.  I would be glad to move this to the Mod Request board if you want.

Should I delete this and ask this question on the Coding board?
