REMEMBER-IT is a multi-featured date/memory manager which ensures that important events, payments due, billings, birthdays, or (heaven forbid) anniversaries are not forgotten. Business associates, relatives, friends, and others will be impressed at how thoughtful and organized you are by remembering those important dates year after year; you need not give the credit to your computer. More than a calendar, REMEMBER-IT searches your list of events and, when the date is within your predetermined warning window, alerts you that the event is coming up. Only events that are pertinent to a particular day's warning window are displayed. You do not have to scan your calendar ahead for upcoming events. This program is not memory-resident but is designed to run every time your computer is powered up. Events within the warning window will be displayed and you may continue on to other applications with one keypress or utilize several other program functions before exiting REMEMBER-IT. Program functions allow reminders to be entered based on annual, one-time, or monthly frequency. Additional features include a calendar capable of displaying any month in a 200-year period, a date computer that will determine a date future or past from your given number of days, and a Julian day calculator. Documentation is included.

REMEMBER-IT USERS GUIDE V1.0 COPYRIGHT 1988 by Wayne D. Riggs All rights reserved Wayne Riggs P.O. Box 1235 Atwater, CA 95301 - INTRODUCTION REMEMBER-IT is a multi-featured date manager program for PC/MS DOS computers that will ensure important dates, payments due, birthdays, or (heaven forbid) anniversaries, etc are not forgotten. Annual, monthly, and one time reminders are supported. Only when you are within your predetermined day prior window will pertinent reminders be displayed. REMEMBER-IT will require about 128K of RAM and one floppy or fixed disk. The program is self prompting and menu driven during program execution. It is not memory resident and should not create memory resident conflicts. Documentation is included on each program diskette. To obtain a printout of this documentation insert the program in the active drive, ready your printer with paper and enter DOC. This file will print out for use as reference. GETTING STARTED The optimum way to use REMEMBER-IT is to run it every time you power up your computer. This way you won't have to remember to use REMEMBER-IT. The best way to achieve this is to invoke REMEMBER-IT from within an autoexecute batch file. If you already use an autoexecute batch file just add it to your file after memory resident drivers and just prior to any menus or menu programs that take you into other applications. See your DOS instructions for creation of an autoexecute batch file. FIXED DISK INSTALLATION FIRST: COPY the three files REMEMBER.EXE, REMEMBER.TTL, and REMEMBER.DTA from disk A: into the root directory. EXAMPLE: COPY A:REMEMBER.* C:\ SECOND: Create an autoexec.bat file or ADD REMEMBER to your present autoexec.bat file. EXAMPLE of creation of an autoexecute batch file: At the DOS prompt C:\> type: copy con autoexec.bat Then press ENTER. Type the file names of any initialization programs or drivers you already use and press ENTER after each one. Prior to bringing up a menu program or other file that gets you into your normal applications, at the DOS prompt C:\> type: REMEMBER Then press ENTER. After typing the last command press F6 then press ENTER. A 1 File(s) copied prompt will indicate the batch file has been created and stored to disk. - 2 - - FLOPPY DISK INSTALLATION Floppy disk only users can install REMEMBER-IT in a batch file arrangement if it is loaded ahead of any program you frequently use. If placed in an autoexecute batch file on your boot up system disk REMEMBER-IT will run automatically after your DOS boots up. Install as per fixed disk directions above. The drive prompt will be A:> instead of C:> It may also be run like any other program just by inserting the REMEMBER-IT disk and typing: REMEMBER then press Enter. This mode however, defeats the intent of the program and puts the burden of remembering to run the program on you the operator instead of your computer. RUNNING THE PROGRAM When the program is executed, you get a brief title letting you know REMEMBER-IT is running. The program will search for reminders that meet day and lead time criteria. There are three different categories of reminders. Annual reminders are those like taxes due or the wife's birthday. One time reminders only trigger once and never again. Monthly reminders like billing reminders or mortgage payment due dates trigger every month within the trigger window. If no reminders are applicable, a "NO REMINDERS TODAY" prompt will display in the reminder window area. If no other program functions are desired, a single keypress (F4) will exit you from the program and the batch file will take you on to other applications. The lower window displays available functions. The middle window displays prompts or serves as the entry pad when entering data into the program. TODAYS REMINDER MODE When TODAY'S REMINDERS are being displayed, several functions are available to by pressing the appropriate function key: F1: ADD NEW REMINDER. This will activate the middle window for reminder entry. Follow the prompts given in the lower window. Date format errors will create an error signal and you must enter it again. Reminder types are A for annual, O for one time, and M for monthly. Next enter the reminder text like "Wife's Birthday / buy present". Then enter the lead time in days you want your computer to start prompting you. Every time the program is run, during the warning days window you will be reminded. Note: for all reminders, the program will not display reminders until after the reminder date. F2: DATE COMPUTER / CALENDAR. This mode puts opens a submenu containing three different functions: 200 Year Calendar, Days Ahead / Behind, Julian Day, and Previous Menu functions. Each of these functions is described separately below. F3: DISPLAY ALL REMINDERS. All reminders in the system will be displayed as well as opening up four submenu functions. If the reminders have been previously sorted they will increase by date. Press the down arrow to scroll through the reminders. A prompt will show when you have reached the last reminder. The four submenu - 3 - - functions available are SORT REMINDERS BY DAY / MONTH, DELETE REMINDER ON CURSOR LINE, RETURN TO TODAYS REMINDERS, and EXIT REMINDER MODE. DATE CALENDAR / COMPUTER MODES 200 YEAR CALENDAR: Enter year and month desired from 1899 to 2099. A calendar for the appropriate month will be displayed on the screen. For this year or this month just press enter. DAYS AHEAD / BEHIND: This computational function will after entering an beginning date, compute what the Julian and Calendar date will be up to 366 days forward or backward in time. This function precludes those sessions with calendar counting days to determine when some action in the future or past need to be accomplished. JULIAN DAY: After entering a calendar date this function will convert the day into a Julian day. ALL REMINDER NOTES MODE EDIT REMINDERS: When in the REVIEW ALL REMINDER mode, you may edit any reminder by positioning the corsor on the reminder line and pressing the F1 key. The cursor will position on the editable field and allow changes to be made. Use the arrow keys or press enter to move through the fields. When in the last field, press enter to save the information to disk. If you wish to exit without changes, press the ESC key at any time. DELETE REMINDER ON CURSOR LINE: If you wish to delete a reminder, position the cursor next to it and press F2 when in the Display All Reminders mode. The reminder will be permanently deleted from the data record. SORT REMINDERS BY DAY / MONTH: Sort Reminders by Date should be used after any reminder entry if you want the reminders ordered by date when listed. Because of the different types of reminders, they are not sorted by year but by day and month to make then appear in sequence when the DISPLAY ALL REMINDERS function is used. RETURN TO TODAYS REMINDERS: When the Display all Reminders mode is active, pressing F4 will return you to the Today's Reminders format. EXIT REMEMBER IT: When in the Today's Reminders format, pressing F5 will cause all data to be saved and initiate exit from the program.
