Reminders are not setable for longer than 6 months

Post by miked » Mon Jan 23, 2012 10:05 am

Hi together

we've just downloaded the ultimate trial version. We want to use it as a track/todo List for our IT dept (5 user).

So far we're happy, however, in case we set an task for example to the 1.08.2012 with a reminder of 23.01.2012, the reminder always switches automaticly to the 29.01.2012 (after we saved and closed).

Other example:
Task per 20.02.2013 13:00 o clock
Reminder Popoup: Before event start: 394 days (which will be automaticly set in case I put in 23.01.2012 at specific date/time).
At specific date/time: 23.01.2012 : 13:00 o clock.
Now once I hit save and re-open the Task -> Reminder is set to 18.08.2012! (not the 23.01.2012 as we configured).

Systems we've tried: W7, Windows XP
VueMinder Ultimate (Trial Version) 9.0.0

Is this a bug or are reminders limited?

Best regards,

Hi Miked, welcome to the forums. There were some performance problems in the previous version, when reminders for items occurring more than 6 months in the future were defined. This was especially true of daily or recurring events that had reminders, since there were many events to process to determine which reminders should be shown.

Version 9.0 scaled the range of reminders back to 6 months (it was 2 years previously). I realize some users may require longer lead time than 6 months on certain reminders, and will change this to be a user-editable option in a future release. I'll let you know when this improvement is completed.

Please let me know if you have any other questions, and thank you for trying VueMinder Ultimate.
