I set up a notification for shipping scanners.  I have ship date-arrival date-return date.  I need to be notified 2 days before they are due to ship. How do set this up!If anyone can help me that would be great.

Hi Tina,

From what you wrote it sounds like you'll need to create a Reminder instead of a Notification.  QuickBase offers three different types of Emails:

1.  Notifications -- sends immediately based off a record change (added, modified, deleted)

2.  Subscriptions -- send a report on a scheduled basis

3.  Reminders -- sends a reminder based off of a date field

You can set your Reminder to send to you 2 days before your date field.  More information on Reminders here:

Any questions please let me know!
