    Recurring email reminders

    Hi,
    We are a team of 25 people. As part of our weekly status meeting, someone has the responsibility of taking down the minutes of meeting. One of the recent pain points we noticed in our group was that we forget whose turn it is to take down
    minutes for a particular meeting/conf call. This discussion is about automating it... Here is definitely a process improvement idea that will be
    appreciated by all projects - a central reminder service would be great.
    We are looking for an automatic way of generating a reminder for the person responsible for the minutes for every week.
    Any idea how this can be done? A web based system would be most preferable.
    Thanks,
    Pooja

    Re: Recurring email reminders

    A simple perl script would do the job...
    I personally wouldn't worry about automating such stuff - it isn't worth the effort.

    Cheers!

    Re: Recurring email reminders

    Just go into Outlook and set up a task for each future week and assign the task to the person who is responsible for taking the minutes.

    An Alternative.

    In Outlook set up a recurring meeting,

    In the meeting notice list each meeting and the person responsible for taking the minutes.
