Now with unlimited asset reminders

By Mark Steeves, Windmill Software

It used to be that the only reminder you needed for an asset was when the warranty was due to expire.  Ok, truth be told, all you could enter was a single warranty reminder into for each of your assets, and for a long time that seemed like all you really needed.  Everything progresses, and so with the latest release of, we have added the ability to have multiple reminders set on each of your assets.


This is a feature that is really going to come in handy when you purchase our upcoming transportation app and want to track more information about your vehicles.  This is not to say that it is limited to vehicles as you are free to set up as many Picklist Asset Reminder types as you need.


Think of all the things you can track besides the basic warranty.  You want to get a reminder of when your bus needs its plate worries, we can do that.  Need to track a lease or rental expiry, a state inspection, your vehicle's insurance?...easy, just make a new Asset Reminder Type and then set up additional reminders for your assets.

After you have created new Asset Reminder Types in your Picklist, you simply open an asset and expand the Reminders Panel near the bottom of the page.  If you already had an Asset Warranty Expiry set for the asset, you will now see a Warranty Reminder already in the panel. From here you can create new Asset Reminders using the Picklist label you created earlier and set the reminder date as well as a note. All of your reminders now show up on a dashboard indicator called Asset Reminders.

Tip: Each reminder is independent of each other and can be disabled either from the Asset Reminder panel,
or from the Asset Reminders section of the Dashboard.
