#counters in report
I was trying to track the value of a counter through the reports and it seems that changes are not logged in at least one situation. This may not be enough of an issue but I’m often trying to solve problems with counter systems.
The counter in question goes up in the remindprocedure and down in the doneprocedure of a job. I can track the value by searching the term #ExtraWorkReminder, but there’s a blind spot when the job goes overdue while the programme is closed. When opened, the report acknowledges the RemindProcedure but does not state the new value of the counter:
sa 20 1356 You are 13 hours 41 minutes 28 seconds late with Extra Work
sa 20 1356 Playing sound Clout.wav
sa 20 1356 "You are 13 hours 41 minutes 28 seconds late with Extra Work"
sa 20 1306 Response time 10 seconds
sa 20 1306 Flag on: ExtraWorkReminderSitch
sa 20 1306 Next reminder at 20-11-2021 2328
ExtraWorkReminderSitch is set only in the RemindProcedure:
[Procedure-Extra Work Reminder]
The report acknowledges the ‘Sitch’ flag, so the counter must have gone up too, mustn’t it? Would it be possible and worthwhile to include the detail in the report?
I’m not comfortable making requests, but thanks for any time you spend on it. I assure you that my satisfaction with your product is profound, at times overwhelming, and I trust you to treat the messages at your leisure.
Btw, the problem I was having was due to a wrong assumption that RemindProcedure without RemindInterval does not repeat. It does. I’ve inserted 'RemindInterval=1000d', which should be enough to get the job done. Tests continue...
Thanks again for everything.
