Alarm Stickies 3
a reminder utility

Alarm Stickies 3 is a program that, through the use of "electronic stickies" like the below one:

Default sticky: you can change at any time both any attribute of the default sticky and the attributes of every single sticky

allows you to:

The program allows you to choose the folder where to save settings and data, which therefore can be shared with other your PCs (or Windows operating systems, if you have more than one on your PC), if the selected folder is a shared one (eg a Google Cloud folder ).

Avoid sharing the data folder with other users: a sticky that reaches the alert time is displayed only on a single PC and in case of multiple PCs open at the same time the PC where jumps the sticky might not be the your. Recurrences, instead, can be shared since them remain in the database after the achievement of the event.

Elements of the sticky:

  1. "Status image" that shows the status of the stickies:
    green color = sticky active (gets keyboard input)
    purple color= sticky inactive
  2. Text area
  3. Date of alert
  4. Time of alert
  5. Resizing area (grab by mouse)

Basically the use of stickies it's intended for writing quick notes or remembering random events. For recurring events (annual, semi-annual, four-monthly, quarterly or monthly) it is preferable to use the Recurrences, which are then displayed through Windows notifications.

In figure an example of Windows notification of a recurrence close to expire.

In the Windows Settings popups must be enabled in:
System > Notifications & actions

Recurrences are checked in two occasions:

  1. At program startup (that is: at Windows startup if the option is enabled)
  2. When you wake up your PC after a sleep, if AS3 is still open

By default each time you run AS3 the program checks on internet (only once) if there are updates. You can deselect this control at any time by the "Info" window.
