    Hi Chris - any movement on this? I've just sat at my computer and it is now Tuesday 02 Apr (morning). Home page is still showing 'Today: Monday 1 April 2019'. Clicking on 'Refresh' in the tool bar successfully changes the 'Quote of the day' at each click, but the date stays stubbornly set on 1 April. OK, as before shutting down and restarting will set the correct date - but should that be necessary? Thanks!

    Thanks Chris! Just to confirm it's not an anomaly - I didn't use my computer yesterday (Monday), and this morning, on logging in, it was still showing Sunday... It's easy enough to shut down and restart, and all is well - but I'll look forward to some good news!! Thanks again.

    I see in an earlier reply (9 Aug 2017) that you say the Home Page refreshes at midnight - but mine doesn't! For example, today, Sunday 3 March, I sat at my computer and the home page was still showing 'No Events Due - Today - Saturday 02 March, 2019'. I clicked on 'Refresh' but it remained showing Saturday. Even the calendar shows Saturday! It appears that the only way (and I accept, there may be others) that I could get it to 'move' to Sunday was by shutting down and restarting Doogie. So, my question is - why isn't midnight triggering a change as you suggest? I'm in Perth, Western Australia and have time set to local time (UTC +8). Could midnight mean UTC midnight or "my" midnight (I trust the latter)? Any comments welcome, as this is mildly irritating!

    Thanks so much Chris. It seems so easy - yet whenever I'd tried, it never seemed to work for me! Maybe its' 'the way' I was attempting to add an event - who knows? But I tried, as you suggested, and it worked perfectly. I must admit, I always assumed it would - I didn't for a moment imagine that the PIM wouldn't take account of multi-day events! But when things don't quite do what you'd expected, you do start to doubt your own sanity...... My faith is totally restored!!

    I'm not sure if this is quite the place, but here goes....! Can I create an event that spans two days? For example, I have a long flight that starts at 10pm on day 1 and ends at 13:00 (1pm) on day 2. Can I create that event from the one form associated - initially - with day 1 or must I make two events from 22:00 to 23:59 on day 1 and 00:01 to 13:00 on day 2 (and I use those figures as military experience taught me you NEVER use 00:00!!)

    M mikeinnc posted in Let's promote DoogiePim!.

    I was the very fortunate 'winner' of a copy of DoogiePim, and I immediately recognised it as a very comprehensive and powerful PIM. Now that I'm retired, I admit that I probably don't use anywhere near enough of its capabilities, but nonetheless, I can really see its advantages. I recall that I suggested it as a powerful and understated PIM on a site that looks at various such applications, but the comment that came back was that 'since it didn't seamlessly interface with a phone or tablet - IOS or Android - it had very limited usefulness in this day and age', as 'few people now only used a computer'. I only add this as a comment - it's certainly not my consideration. But - maybe it is something that is holding it back from greater penetration of a crowded market?

    Thanks Chris. I'm sure that will fix it! It all seems so obvious when you explain......

    I have strange issues, too, with events I have set in my calendar. For example, I have a recurring event set every Thursday morning, with a reminder set for 15 minutes, and a 'default' resource (me!). Yet I seem to get quite random occurrences of the event being flagged as 'overdue' with a dialog on screen when I login to my computer. It's not just this one event - it seems to happen with other events, and they all seem quite random. Sometimes it's a day or so - other time it can be up to a couple of weeks after! I always just hit 'dismiss' or dismiss all' and the dialog disappears, but others will randomly still occur. Am I doing something wrong? Is the reminder logic working as it should? This isn't a show stopper - more just a niggling occurrence, but maybe someone could advise me if they have seen this behaviour, and how I can stop it?

    Thanks so much, Chris! That worked like a charm. It was just slightly irritating seeing constant reference to something I knew had gone......

    M mikeinnc started the conversation How to delete deleted Do Note from Home Page?.

    I'm very much on L plates with Doogie, although I can see it has huge advantages! So, my issue is, I created a 'Do Note' whilst tinkering with the application, and now I don't need that note any longer. So, I went to 'Help'; found the section re Do Notes and duly deleted it from it's (default) location. Problem is - it is still referenced on the home page and nothing I do seems to 'convince' Doogie it has gone and I don't want to see any reference to it! I've refreshed; closed down; restarted - all to no avail. The note is definitely gone, but it is still linked on the home page - '1 Recent Do Note documents' followed by the note name. So - when or how can I get rid of this reference to a now removed and unwanted note? Many thanks!
