VMT Icon  Tab Two - Maintenance Due

Tab two allows the user to selectively display overdue tasks based on the last time it was performed and the task's recurring interval. The mechanics and choosing/understanding the filtering options is explained below.

The Mechanics:
Using the maintenance data previously entered,  the next projected maintenance date is calculated and results shown in the tabular area at the bottom of the window.  If the calculated next maintenance dates ( shown as "Next Maint Date" in the tabular area ) are in the past or equal to today’s date, the date(s) is colored red to warn of potential overdue maintenance.

In addition to filtering based on the chosen owner,  property and task,  the radio buttons provide three filtering options:

(Option 1) Only Last/Most Recent Task
For this filtering option, only the last ( i.e. most recent ) service task performed is shown. For example, if the "My House" property and "Change Furnace Filters" task are selected, only the last filter change for "My House" is shown. The other "My House" filter changes prior to the last are not shown.

(Option 2) All Items for a Task
All the maintenance items for a given owner/property/task are shown. For example, if the "My House" and "Change Furnace Filters" were selected for property and task, than all the filter changes recorded in the data base for this property would be shown.

(Option 3) Only OverDue Tasks
Displays maintenance if the calculated next maintenance date is today’s date or in the past.  Every item listed would have a  red-colored next maintenance date

A task is "overdue" when elapsed time is greater than the task interval. For example, if "Change Furnace Filters" has an interval of three(3) months, this task would be over due if more than 3 months has elapsed since the last change.

Note: tasks defined without a recurring time interval aren't evaluated when checking for overdue.

Right Click ( or Control click ) To Add Reminders For Future Tasks
Control clicking a maintenance list item ( from the list at the bottom of the drop window ) allows a reminder to be added to the system user notification center ( requires OS X 10.8+ ). More information:
