Would you like to be notified if specific conditions are met within your GP Company database?

For instance when a customer balance is over a specified limit?

GP has a way for you to set up customized reminders to alert you if:

A SmartList favorite meets the conditions that you have specified.

 Your custom reminder can also be displayed as a Cue in the Hope Page.

Use the Reminder Preferences window and the Custom Reminder window to create new customized reminders.
