If you set Action Dates, Paper Tiger will look into the future the number of days you choose to remind you.
The Database Reminders Horizon feature lets you choose how far into the future you want the reminders page to see. This also affects the reminders pop-up that appears when you have reminders. For example: If I set my Database Reminders Horizon to 2 weeks, I will only be able to see action dates that are due two weeks or less from today.
To set the Database Reminders Horizon preference, Click on the "Database Preferences" tab inside the database and choose the number of days you want from the drop down box.
