Set alarm

New feature for those who work actively with documents in Next®.

If you use Next® actively for documents and processes, you probably find yourself in need of reminding yourself to take action on either. Instead of using Outlook for this, you can now set your own alarms in Next®.

Find your document, click Set alarm, define when, and make a short comment to help you remember why. 

In the list of documents

Right-click one or more documents to set the alarm for this document.  

Set alarm, select date, type why. That's all.

Or to remove it.

Right-click Remove alarm if you change your mind. 

From the document view

When you have a document open to view, just click Set or Remove alarm. 

Set alarm, select date, type why. That's all.

Managing your alarms

In your profile you can manage the alarms you have set.

Profile, Alarms 

Getting a notification

When time is up, you get the notification in the Notification center.

Once you've done you thing - remove the notification. 

With the reminder, you even get a shortcut to the document to set a new one - in case it is a repetitive task.

As easy as that. You'll never miss an important task. 

The business log

When you set a Reminder (or cancel it) the business log is updated. So is it when you get a notification. 

Future enhancements

In a future release you will be able set notification to hit you as a task, an email, or a text message.

In a coming release of Next®, you will be able to set Alarms for other objects than documents. E.g. folders or tasks. And also set reminder for other people using Next®.
