How to Use

Get just in time reminders when certain keywords appear on your screen. Great for notifying you when there's a certain lead you shouldn't call, a fraudulent address, or any other type of timely based reminder you'd like.


Google Sheet: You will need a Google Sheet with a tab named Keywords with the first column named Type and the second named Keyword, and a third colum named Message. In the Type column, set the value to Flag and type the keyword you want to watch for about in the Keyword column. Finally in the next cell, type the message you'd like to show when that keyword appears, like this! Keywords are case sensitive, so make duplicates with upper and lowercase if you want to catch them all.
