How can I set the Reminder to alert every 4 hours instead of just daily/weekly/monthly? RRS feed

  • Question

  • So I need to set up a system that will remind the user on a certain recurrence interval, like every 4 hours. 

    Is there any way to get a Reminder to work on a custom recurrence interval? Because the only option now that I know of is to set the RecurrenceType to RecurrenceInterval, which only supports daily, weekly, monthly and yearly recurrences.

    Are there any work-arounds, hacks or alternatives? Would it be better if I would send a ShellToast in a PeriodicTask?

  • Maybe Windows Notification Service?

    NOTE: If I ask for code, please provide something that I can drop directly into a project and run (including XAML), or an actual application project. I'm trying to help a lot of people, so I don't have time to figure out weird snippets with undefined objects and unknown namespaces.
