Using the Windows System Tray to notify your users of open VISUAL tasks
VISUAL Tasks are generated automatically from processes you define in ECN (Engineering Change Notice), Purchase Requisition, and Workflow modules.
To view the list of tasks assigned to you or your team, you need to go to the TASK MAINTENANCE module which you can access from the PURCHASING or ENG/MFG menus
This is a great feature of VISUAL as it allows you to keep track of things that need to get done and who should be doing them.
So what can you do?
Besides getting your big stick, you can configure VISUAL to add a task reminder indicator to the Window Tray to let users know they have open tasks to get busy on. The users can then click on the indicator to call up the TASK module with all their open tasks.
BTW...The system tray is located in the Windows taskbar --> that area usually at the bottom right corner next to the clock. It contains small icons for easy access to system functions such as antivirus, printer, sound volume, battery status, network settings, and more.
You can enable this feature in the visual.ini file and/or in Preference Maintenance
