Warningz

Updating, Archiving, Re-Activating and Deleting WarnZ

1


With WarningZ you will never miss a deadline. WarningZ has powerful update and repeat logic to ensure that you ‘Get It Done. In Time. Every Time.’ This Tutorial shows you how to update, archive, re-activate and delete WarnZ.

WarnZ are either ‘repeating’ or ‘once only’. And WarnZ can be either manually or automatically updated. Therefore, for updating, there are 4 types of WarnZ:

Repeating and Manually Updated. (Bills, Memberships, Medicals etc).
Repeating and Automatically Updating. (Birthdays, Anniversaries, Loans etc).
Once Only and Manually Updated. (To-Do’s, Reminders, Tasks etc).
Once Only and Automatically Updating. (Meetings, Sports Events, Concerts etc).

On update a WarnZ will either:

Repeat: The WarnZ is reset to notify when the task or event is due again.
Complete: Remaining Green until manually archived.
Archive: An archived WarnZ can be kept as a record. Re-Activated if needed again in the future. Or Deleted.

A WarnZ can also be manually ‘Archived’ at any time if it is no longer required.

There are other ‘Details’ options which control the powerful update logic of a WarnZ but they do not need to be covered in this tutorial because they do not affect how an update to a WarnZ is made. These options are covered in the tutorial on the WarnZ ‘Details’ page.

It is not necessary for you to fully understand the update behaviours of a WarnZ however it is useful knowledge. With it you can create your own customised WarnZ and use the full power of WarningZ to manage your life!

Examples of repeating automatically updating WarnZ are:

Anniversaries.
Bank Standing Orders.

Should you wish to update the WarnZ swipe right.

If you do tap on the update icon then you will receive the following Warning explaining that you are trying to update an automatically updating WarnZ.

You have 3 options:

Update and Make Manual: The WarnZ will be updated now and will be converted to a manually updating WarnZ. You will have to update it every time it reaches its due date.

Update and Keep Auto: The WarnZ will be updated now and will update automatically in the future. You may wish to do this to clear it from the top of the column because you no longer need to be reminded that it is due.

Cancel Update: Allow WarningZ to make the update automatically at the end of the day on its due date.

12


Important: Many WarnZ templates have been set to update automatically for events such as Birthdays, Anniversaries and Loans. This is so that if you set an actual birth date; wedding date; or the date you commenced a loan, then the WarnZ will correctly display the number of events completed or remaining when the WarnZ is first created.

If you wish to turn the auto update off because you want to update the WarnZ yourself then you can do so. Turning the auto update off will not affect the function of the WarnZ. The only difference will be that at the end of the due date the WarnZ will remain ‘Red’ and at the top of the column of WarnZ until you update it. Even if you update the WarnZ after the event then it will update using the the due date (as long as the ‘even after expiry’ switch is set on the WarnZ details page).

To learn more about the update behaviour switches see the tutorial about the WarnZ ‘Details’ page.
