When you need to check a web page frequently to see if there are any new updates, the Page Minder agent can do that for you. Whenever a change to the specific page occurs, the agent either sends you an email with a summary or the actual page.
Before you can run an agent such as Page Minder or Housekeeping, you must enable scheduled local agents first. If you've done this once, you need not do it again. If you've not enabled scheduled agents, choose File, Preferences, User Preferences, and place a check mark next to Enable scheduled local agents. Click OK. Remember that agents will only run when Notes is running.
To set up the Page Minder agent, do the following:
Open a web page and choose Actions, Internet Options from the menu.
Select the Page Minder tab (see Figure 13.6).
Figure 13.6. Save yourself time by setting Page Minder to check for updates on important web pages.
