    This new feature looks great to me! :)

  • We now have 3 forum themes

    Go for the default (light) theme, Shades of Grey or Shades of Blue. I just added the Blue one.

    The thread about it is here: https://www.access-programmers.co.uk/forums/threads/new-forum-theme-shades-of-blue.314136/

It can. You can use a Timer event or use the Task Scheduler.

You need to have the database open and running 24/7 for the timer event to work. I don't use this method. I use the Task Scheduler. And because sometimes bad things happen to good people, I have the app log the event so I can see whether or not it actually ran. You can schedule a different task to run once a day to check for a log entry and if the entry is missing, email you with an error notice if you don't want to have to check the log yourself.
