Remote Calendar Notification

......

The concept is to modify the calendar notification agent so that an SMS / Text message will automatically be sent to the user's mobile device, if the Notes client hasn't been accessed in the last x minutes.

Notes normally displays a dialogue box on your computer to remind you of a meeting .

There are two options / parts to this concept:

1. The Notes client would have the ability to send an SMS / text message to your mobile device, if you haven't used your computer in x

                             xx minutes and a calendar notification is displayed or, you haven't responded to the Notes calendar notification window in x

xx

minutes. where x

xx = a user defined amount of time. Presumably, you are away from

your desk and may have forgotten an appointment / meeting or need a reminder.

2. The Domino* server is aware that the Notes client is not connected , or hasn't accessed the server. e.g., your desktop/laptop is off. In which case, the server would generate the SMS / text message to remind you of an appointment / meeting.

The user would be able to configure one or both parts of these configuration options . Both agents would work together so duplicate messages are notnotnot

not sent to the device.
