Let your watchdogs remind you of anything

Do you need to keep track of contract dates, birthdays of employees, warranty dates or anything else? OneSoft makes it easier to keep track of any important dates nad events.

Watchdogs save you a lot of time. You can set them to watch over anything – it does not matter if you want to be reminded of a contract’s expiration date, your colleague’s birthday or an approved invoice. The watchdog sends an email alert so you do not have to take care of anything.

 

Do you need to be reminded of any date? Take a look at our guide.

 

Do you know what our users want to be reminded of the most?

  • Effective date of the end of agreement in contracts

  • Staff training dates

  • Change of ID number

  • Birthdays of superiors or colleagues

  • Roadworthiness tests

  • First aid kit expiration date

and more…

 

Our watchdogs are here to help you track any information. They watch over any date, any value or any change with notifications.

You can turn this function on for any detail. There can be multiple watchdogs for one item and you can change them whenever you need to. You can also set up watchdogs to watch over all items in a datasheet.

 

There are five options for watchdogs:

  • Reminding on a specific date

  • Reminding recurrently

  • Reminding when a value is changed

  • Reminding based on the value

  • Reminding on a date of anniversary

You can also set up who gets alerted or if you want a task to be created when an alert goes off.

The pictures below show watchdogs settings.

 

A window opens up after clicking the watchdog icon where you can find all the settings.  

Reminding on a specific date

Do you need to watch over a specific date for one item in a datasheet? Pick the specific date in the calendar.

 

Reminding recurrently

Do you need to be repeatedly reminded of a specific event? This option reminds you how often you choose or you can choose specific dates and alert goes off only on those days. A „when to stop“ function can put an end to this watchdog based on your choice.

 

 

Reminding when a value is changed

Do you need to alerted when a change to a detail happens? This option sends out an alert whenever a detail gets changed.

 

Reminding based on the value

Do you need to be alerted when a detail gets changed to a certain value? This option sends out an alert when this happens and is very useful for the detail type list. 

 

Reminding on a date of anniversary

Do you need to be alerted on a date of anniversary that is repeated yearly, monthly, semi-annualy or quarterly? This option sends out an alert ahead of the anniversary. 

 

If the watchdogs are set up correctly, the dog icon by every detail turns green .

All of the watchdogs can be found in the „Watchdogs“ tab in the left menu.
