The highly anticipated “recurring reminders” feature has been added to the Cronote website. Users can now set up daily reminders with one click. The reminder will automatically be sent out at the same time, every day until the user opts to halt the reminders. Previously, daily reminders could only be achieved by individually scheduling a reminder for each given day. Recurring reminders work well for remembering medication schedules, chores, and sports practices.
Cronote reminders are scheduled through three easy steps:
- Select the recipient(s)
- Write the message
- Set the delivery time
Choose the repeat “Daily” box to schedule daily reminders. The same message will be sent out at the set delivery time, starting from the first date. Cronote reminders can be sent via text message or email. All reminders can be managed and tracked on the Cronote website.

Cronote is kicking off the summer with the Yale Entrepreneurial Institute!
Cronote was one of twelve teams selected to participate in this year’s Yale Entrepreneurial Institute (YEI) Summer Fellowship. The 10-week startup bootcamp kicked off on May 23, with a workshop on customer development and guest speaker Ka Mo Lau, the co-founder and Chief Financial Officer of PaperG, an advertising and technology company recently named one of Forbes’ 100 Most Promising Companies in America.
The program provides Cronote a stipend and experienced mentors in the fields of technology and advertising. The bootcamp also provides multiple workshops designed to help each team build firm foundations for their businesses. Since the program’s inception in 2007, many teams have achieved long-term success, including YouRenew, a buyback and resell electronics company.

Movie fans, this is for you! Cronote has a new feature that helps remember upcoming movie releases.
Cronote’s new movie reminder page – http://www.cronote.com/movies.shtml – lets individuals schedule free reminders about upcoming feature films. Each movie has an adjacent Remind button that visitors can use to remind themselves or their friends about the upcoming movie. The user may choose to send the movie reminder via email or text message. The default reminder time is the day the movie opens in theaters, but users may change this time to any date.
Example of Movie Reminders from the Cronote Website
The Cronote Movie Reminders page lists out upcoming movie release dates and provides an associated Remind button. The button lets you schedule an email or text message reminder for the day the movie opens in theaters.
Cronote also offers reminder pages for music (album releases) and health (health observance days).

The press release is also featured in the Issac Daniel Report, a new information portal spotlighting fresh technology and innovation from around the world.
Cronote Remind Button Widget
Advertising on the web can be time-consuming and costly. In the cut-throat world of Internet advertising, the information highway can easily wipe out efforts made in the launch of a new product, event, or service. Unless the advertisement is in the right place at the right time, the customer may forget it ever existed.
Cronote’s ‘Remind’ button is a new and effective way to advertise on the Internet. The Remind button integrates a time-based element for advertising via a text message reminder. Cronote is a web-based service that delivers 100-character messages at a specified time.
The Remind button works in a fashion much like a Facebook “Like” button. It can be placed on any website next to a product, event, or service. The Remind button is clickable and lets the website visitor schedule a reminder about the advertised item. The reminder could, for example, be delivered 24 hours before a product is available for purchase. Thus, at that moment in time, that very same website visitor is reminded of the existence of the product, even if it had slipped his mind despite his genuine interest in it.
Here are 5 tips on how to use the Cronote Remind button for advertising on a website:
- A new product that will be available in stores on a certain date
- Upcoming premiere of a new movie
- Upcoming exhibition at a museum or art venue
- A special menu that changes daily but is predetermined, like an “ice cream flavor of the day”
- An event or service that occurs annually, like a dental check-up
The Remind button puts the power on the customer to choose what he wants to remember. The targeted advertisement goes only to those who are truly interested, making it more cost-effective and less time-consuming.
