Monitor schedule

Hello,

How can one see what is planned in the scheduler on a PPC 2003?
For example, I never know when the PPC is going to ring (alarm) for
appointments, timer wake up etc.....
It would be easy to check this in a list (maybe with a third-party app.)

Thanks,
Perry

If you know when it is going to alarm, why do you need the alarm? ;) One
option for the appointments is a Today Plug in that shows them for you.
Currently I really like Pocket Breeze for this. There are others, even free
ones, that extend the today calendar feature to beyond what the PPC does
natively. You can typically see up to 7 days of upcoming appointments.

Don't know of anything that shows the alarms that are set. SPB Time can
provide a replacement for the alarm feature though that does show the alarms
for the day on a nice display.

Hey, I took a look at Handango, and there is an app called Alarm Status that
may help you on alarms. Looks pretty neat if you use alarms a lot. Didn't
look any farther than that, so there are likely others.

Try an app called S-K Tools (used to be called Remover). It shows the
contents of the Notify Queue, which is every time the PPC will wake up.
Does a lot more useful things for reclaiming space; IMO an excellent program
that I wouldn't be without.

And as to why the OP want's to know when it's going to alarm, has your PPC
never got itself horribly confused? Mine has managed to duplicate alarms
(but not the appointments they relate to) and shift alarms by several hours
to times when I want to be asleep.

I was being facetious, and the OP was looking for a simple list of alarms
that were coming up, I presume for reasons you suggest, or just to get a
heads up that there is something coming up.

One reason is that sometimes my PPC's alarm goes off when I'm asleep.

I program alarm's on the PPC as well as there are alarm's synchronized from
Outlook (tasks) I always check check those items carefully, but still
sometimes I'm missing some of them. Hence I want to use an application to
double check if everything is set correctly. Further it is convenient to see
all scheduled alarms in one list, in stead of checking all places where an
alarm schedule can be set.

Thanks for your answers, I have read also the messages here after, I will
check the available options that are proposed.

Best Regards,
Perry

CheckNotifications identifies events on your machine and can get rid of
duplicates created in 2003, but shows alarms too which are just system
events. If using the standard alarms it shows as an event for clock.exe, or
if using something else it is shown for that program- for example
stoptime.exe for stoptime.
