Reminder was the first SharePoint Alert product on the market when it was launched over 4 years ago, and back then time there wasn't really any demand for rich text formatting in Alert emails, but as the volume of email in circulation has increased, the need to generate emails that stand out has become more pressing, so we needed to add this functionality to the product.
Cheltenham, England (PRWEB) November 19, 2009
With users in-boxes flooded with new messages each day, how do you make your vital SharePoint emails stand out? It's easy now with Pentalogic Technology's new Reminder for SharePoint v1.7 - now with Rich Text Formatting.
Pentalogic have today announced the release of v1.7 of their SharePoint Reminder Software, which now includes Rich Text Formatting.
"Everyone is inundated with email these days, and getting users attention is a constant challenge. The standard emails that SharePoint generates are plain, not very attention-grabbing and as they are impossible for non-developers to customize the important information in them can be easily overlooked by a busy user."
"The rich text editor has been on our customers 'wish list' for a few months now, and we are glad to have released it in time for Christmas." Says Pentalogic MD Ryan Wheeler "it's a simple and intuitive WYSIWYG tool that will be easy to use for anyone familiar with SharePoint or Microsoft Word. It allows users to create SharePoint alert and Reminder emails that will really grab the users attention with text features, colors and tables to highlight the important information from your list."
"You can try the new software free of charge for 30 days by visiting the download page of our website. Existing customer can also upgrade free of charge automatically by downloading from the website."
"Reminder was the first SharePoint Alert product on the market when it was launched over 4 years ago, and back then time there wasn't really any demand for rich text formatting in Alert emails, but as the volume of email in circulation has increased, the need to generate emails that stand out has become more pressing, so we needed to add this functionality to the product."
"Reminder is an extremely popular product, we are continually working to improve it and after more than 4 years on the market and our SharePoint Alert product comparison table shows that it still seems to be the market leader."
"SharePoint out-of-the-box offers an "Alert Me" function. New users often see this and think they have something similar to the date based alerts they are used to receiving from Outlook for tasks and calendar events. When they discover that SharePoint's Alert Me feature will only notify them of changes to list items as they happen, disappointment often sets in. Pentalogic Reminder addresses that issue by providing a more familiar date based alert system for SharePoint users. It enables users to schedule alerts for both upcoming and overdue events in SharePoint and is still the only software of its kind to fully support SharePoint's recurring events, allowing users to set up regular reminders for meetings, monthly reports. etc."
"Reminder is very flexible and is used by a huge range of different organizations: this week we were pleased to be able to announce the introduction free licensing for charities and in the next few weeks we will be bringing in a special "starter pack" license, to make Reminder affordable for smaller businesses. We are hoping that our new licensing options will help bring the benefits of Reminder to an even wider group of customers."
