Vehicle MOT Reminder

Post by marksolesbury »

Hey

I look after a 4x4 forum with 700+ members now.

One thing everyone forgets is when the MOT is due on the truck (yearly checkup at an authorised garage).

Id like a mod thats similar to Birthdays, where there is an area in the UCP to enter the date its due.

Then send a reminder email out 30 days before, and also show on the forum somewhere.

Any thoughts on code?

This might actually be useful for a board I'm thinking about starting at the moment. Will try and find some time to put it together soon.

Where would you like the notifications to appear, in a similar box to the birthdays? Perhaps a notification via PM/email if selected by the user as well?

Would love something like this also. :)

I think a simple date field and then every year a pm is sent maybe 7 days before.

Keep meaning to do some work on this, time is the issue as always. Might have a bit spare soon to get a basic MOD together, will keep you all posted.
