reminders
I would love it if there was a challenge reminder for when you enter a challenge which usually takes about ten days to start, some more than that. With so many challenges that are upcoming I can't seem to remember when they start after I had entered them. So lately I enter as they show up. I haven't got enough time in the world to keep going to the challenge page and look up the upcoming challenges let alone do every thing else we do here. So a little reminder on my home page would be awesome, just for the ones we entered. I love entering challenges, it's just loads of fun.

I have a folder called upcoming challenges, copy over an image from any challenge, could be current, ended, whatever, and then rename it with the challenge start date plus the name of the challenge. Works well for me...

Luisa I have an A4 book on my desk where I write down all the design credits as I make a page - If the challenge doesn't start for a while I also write the start date down + if its a different vote date to the start I write that down as well = saves a lot of time to going back and forth into the challenge xxxxxx

I tried that at first, Grandma M, but I stopped. Don't know why. I might have to try it again. I just like things to be easy, LOL

Sheesh, sorry, I've been busy, LOL! Luisa, the folder's on my PC where all my scrapbook files are. I have folders for Challenges - Upcoming, Challenges - Ready, Challenges - Entered, Challenges - Ended, and one called For Fun. I don't know, I've just gotten so used to checking in there that it's second nature to me now.

Windows Vista came with a calender of sorts that I think will generate reminders. I don't know what version Windows you're running, but I would think 7 would have an equivalent. And if you use/have Outlook, that definitely does reminders. Check through your computer - there may already be something there that'll do this for you.

I hope I'm giving you all the right link. I have a calendar on my website with challenges on it. I just updated it but can't figure out how to get April & May to show. I'm wondering if it will just automatically change....http://ditzbitz.weebly.com/#/....I'm still playing around on the website & finding new things.When I was updating it earlier today I noticed it had a reminder button, but don't know if that's just for admin or if I can enter email addresses. I'll check it out & if so, will leave a msg here.

Thank you.I checked & there is a way to get reminders via email.Luisa,you are set up to be reminded on every upcoming challenge that's been scheduled so far.You should get an email 3 days before the start of each challenge.If anyone else would like reminders send me a PM with your email address unless I already have it,in which case you just need to let me know.
