    Hi to all!

    I've built a front end/back end batabase for our small company (10 users).
    It handles goods in out, works orders, etc. I'm now looking to set up an
    alerts system that emails users when eg: a works order is due.

    The only way i can think to do this is to have the back end open all the
    time on the server and running loops to check for the dates and times of
    certain entrys, then send emails from the server accordingly.

    This seems like a messy way to do things. Has any one got any onther
    solutions? Maybe there is some third party software to link between the
    backend and the servers email?

    TIA

    Rico

Since you're here... we have a small favor to ask...

More people are visiting & reading SPN than ever but far fewer are paying to sustain it. Advertising revenues across the online media have fallen fast. So you can see why we need to ask for your help. Donating to SPN's is vote for free speech, for diversity of opinions, for the right of the people to stand up to religious bigotry. Without any affiliation to any organization, this constant struggle takes a lot of hard work to sustain as we entirely depend on the contributions of our esteemed writers/readers. We do it because we believe our perspective matters – because it might well be your perspective, too... Fund our efforts and together we can keep the world informed about the real Sikh Sikhi Sikhism. If everyone who writes or reads our content, who likes it, helps us to pay for it, our future would be much more secure. Every Contribution Matters, Contribute Generously!
