I would like to elaborate more on the events popup reminder topic already discussed here : https://community.progress.com/community_groups/products_enhancements/i/rollbase/event_popup_reminders_customization
We are proposing a change to how notifications are displayed for Overdue Events and Tasks. Currently they are all displayed in one growl notification and can only be closed.
It would be ideal to have a window popup listing all the Overdue AND [MK] upcoming meetings or to-do's (or any custom object that uses Event and Task attributes), as shown in this screenshot and have the ability to individually take actions on them.
When the user logs in, the reminders can be automatically displayed, but the user can choose to minimise and carry on working. The reminder button on the header/top will be highlighted to indicate that there are pending notifications. This way it wouldn't popup every time on refresh or when we open a new page as it is the case now. Also, these reminders will be applicable for both UPCOMING and OVERDUE items, which makes the notification user friendly and more interactive. Reminding a meeting is as useful as warning that it is overdue
It would also be good to have options in each one of the objects which have the event and task attributes so that the notifications can be customized.
Also, we could have user specific options;
We have 2 examples below
One more option that would be interesting to add to the objects that have the events/tasks attributes is the ability to select the items to show in the grid actions menu. In the example above we have 'Snooze 5 min' and 'Snooze 15 min'. So similarly we could have 'Snooze 5 min', 'Snooze 10 min', 'Snooze 20 min' for meetings. And then 'Snooze 5 min', 'Snooze 1 hour', 'Snooze 1 day' for tasks. And same as suggested before, this could be a pick-list where we can select the items we want to display in the actions grid menu, in the object itself.
Of course you can then decide on whether to have a maximum number of items in that menu or leave this open to the users to select.
