The scrolling info is constantly updated but if users are not at their PC I created the notification window so they'll see it when they come back. I made bold just to be more in your face, especially if it's regarding some network resource, application or website that is down and they are responsible for fixing it. Users can click "Suppress Update Notices" from the menu to not have this window displayed. I figured if it's used in a Production area, that popup may interfere with processes already running.

Application NameConstant Info
Version 1.57
Short DescriptionA program to display important notices in a workgroup setting or dated reminders in single user mode.
Supported OSes Windows 7 and higher
Web Page / More Info
Download Link Same as above
System RequirementsWindows OS
Author Michael Todd

A program to add/update one line reminders or notices of important events in a work group setting.

Each item may contain the following:

1) Item Description
2) Item Priority 0 to 5 (displayed with different colors)
3) Item Date (defaults to today's date and can repeat Monthly, Biweekly and Weekly)
4) Filename or URL Link for the item
5) Extra text or instructions for other users in the work group.

Items may also be filtered once read. If another user makes a file change then items are re-displayed and the user is notified of changes. The items are constantly scrolled in a short 1-line window in a location of your choice. Thus far the program has been reviewed by SoftPedia ( I wasn't quite finished with it when they 'grabbed' it from my blog. I have a handful of other apps on their site.

Any feedback is welcome. I am still working on Advance notifications of dated items so it can be used as a general Reminder program.

[I also added the version that uses SQLite in the Blog page.]

N.A.N.Y. 2018 / Re: NANY 2018 Release: Stick A Note (Enhancement)

I apologize. I didn't realize that any part of the Window Title can be used to match on a Note. That will do what I was talking about as long as the application name is part of the Window Title. Firefox, Internet Explorer, Outlook, etc. add their name to the Title. Or are you grabbing the Program Name and appending it automatically?

Thanks again for your application.

Wow, this is very nice. I've been using Stickies 9.0c for a while to make notes for specific web pages or documents, but, your program is much simpler. Stickies has Rich Text with bullets, bold, italic, etc., but, for the most part I have no need of text formatting. Stickies has a myriad of other features but a lot of it is overkill.

What do the stickies match on: app name, window title or some other combination? I'm just curious. I will be working with Stick A Note.

Stickies stores Window Title and Program Class and allows you to use asterisks wildcards in the Title.
So, in Firefox, if you wanted a sticky to make notes for any YouTube videos you watch, you can enter:

Title: *YouTube*
Class: MozillaWindowClass

You may want to allow users to not match the full Window Title and enable wildcards to make your program much more versatile.

Thanks again.

He remarked in a clip (now buried in my notes) that instead of "meek" as near "timid", one translation of the phrase comes out "those who have weapons and know how to use them, but then vow to keep them sheathed if at all possible" ... shall inherit the earth!

I'm not sure about the meek keeping weapons ready but in this day and time it's probably a good idea. If you press ALT-T from the Mini View and search on meek you will find all relevant verses. Or from the Zoomed view, click the Topics tab and choose Meekness from the drop down list. Pressing F12 will rotate through the three Topical references.
