Create Recurring Series of Events

3. Set the Start Date and End Date.
Click Calculate max end date to automatically set the maximum end date allowed based on the frequency you selected.
Setting The Reminder
Advologix can display popup reminders for upcoming tasks and events. \ Reminders notify the activity assignee of an upcoming task or event. \ The reminder displays in a small browser popup window when the activity assignee is logged in to Advologix. When a user logs in, any reminders that have not been dismissed and reminders scheduled to occur since the last time the user logged out are shown in the reminder window.
Create or edit a task.
1. Select the Reminder checkbox.
2. Choose the time for the reminder. You will be reminded of the task on that date and time.
If you are setting the reminder for a recurring task series, the reminder applies to each occurrence in the series.
*NOTE: Reminders display in a small browser popup window, called the “reminder window.” When you first log into Advologix, a sound is played and the reminder window automatically pops up to notify you of any task or event reminders that were triggered since you last logged in. While you are logged in, the reminders window opens whenever a reminder is triggered.
