|News of the Past Professional
and CardWare include a feature titled Birthday Milestone.
News of the Past also offers Anniversary Milestones. When
you send greetings year-after-year to the same people you
want to avoid being redundant. That's why we include the
Milestone feature. In subsequent years you can focus the
greetings on different dates.
Using birthdays as our example, simply enter
the date of birth and set the program to print information
highlighting when the client turned 4 years old, or 16,
or 8 years old, any age you like.
Privatizing Clients Date of Birth
News of the Past Professional and CardWare, printing clients date of birth can be turned off and not print on greetings.
Set the Birthday Milestone and the software holds that setting
and automatically adjusts the printed results for each greeting
The first year sending News of the Past or CardWare greetings,
focus the greetings on what happened when the client was
born. In following years select a birthday milestone button,
4th Birthday for example. On the report the software prints
the following heading:
Turning back the clock to your 4th birthday
Additionally, News of the Past Professional lets you turn
back the clock to an earlier Anniversary. An example heading
Turning back the clock to your 10 Anniversary
of Birth Milestone Greetings
In some cases the only data you have for a client is the
month and day of birth, not the complete date with year.
News of the Past Professional lets you use partial date
consisting of a month and day (no year). With the month
and day entered, click print, and a window opens letting
you pick a past year. If you click 20th birthday, the software
prints the greeting and ads the following heading:
Turning back the clock to your 20th birthday
The program is using the month and day of birth, then calculates
the correct year corresponding to exactly 20 years ago when
the client had his or her 20th birthday celebration.
