This action type lets you create reminders, messages that appear at specific times you set. Please note: the reminder is a specific action type. It could be activated by its own hot key, but there is no need to do this because the reminder message will pop up automatically at the time you specify for it.

Action parameters

Reminder text - enter the message you want to appear when the reminder is activated

Play a sound when activated - check this box to have a sound been played when the reminder is activated. The file choose dialog appears automatically when you check this box. You can select any wave (.wav) file you have.

The button with the alarm clock - press this button to set time when you want the reminder to pop up. You can choose from sixteen standard variants (like "30 minutes later") or specify your own time. In the latter case please refer to the Scheduler dialog window to learn about the different time settings available.

Reminder dialog

When a reminder is activated, you see the next reminder dialog:


You can press the OK and delete button to close this dialog and delete the corresponding reminder macro.

You can press the Remind me later button to select another time when you want to be reminded with the same macro.

Or you can press the Close button to close this dialog but keep the corresponding reminder macro preserved for the future needs.

Usage ideas:

  • Make a reminder so you will not miss a meeting while reading your email or surfing the web
