With Advanced Layout Tools – Notifier Pack, critical information will not remain unnoticed. These 2 controls draw attention to a field depending on its value or display an information bar at the top of your screen containing critical information on each contact. The Notifier Pack contains two controls that are designed to draw attention to fields which value meet certain conditions for better management of your contact relationships. With these 2 controls, you are sure that critical information will not remain unnoticed. For example, you could use these controls to draw attention to a date that is about to expire or to warn all users of particularities of certain contacts. The two controls are the Notifier control and the Information Bar control. Here are an example of each on the images. The notifier is tied to an expiration date. Depending on today’s date (in this case it was Nov. 24, 2004), it displays a different icons to indicate that the expiration date is still more than 5 days ahead, less than 5 days ahead or passed. You may also use the notifier with to clearly identify your contacts based on the ID/Status value for example. The Information Bar control The Information Bar displays the content of a field in an Information Bar similar to the one used by Internet Explorer. Ideal to make sure that everyone knows critical information about the contact. How it works: the bar displays the content of a field you choose when adding the bar to the layout. It is only displayed if the associated field contains data. Since you might not want everyone to be able to edit the field thus to change the content of the info bar, we have included a bonus field control which you can use for the associated field in lieu of ACT! regular field controls. This bonus field control allows you to restrict access to the field to any user you want.
