Hello,
If have a question concerning kix. I'm not a developer. I have a logon script. And at the end I want to show a messagebox wich displays the birthday of the one logging on. This works fine with just one username, but I can't make it work if there are two or three people celebrating their birthday on the same day.

Thanks in advance.
$username = ""

Select 

	Case ("@MDAYNO" + "-" + "@MONTHNO") = '3-11'

		$myname= "Firstname Lastname"

		$username = "firtlast"

	Case ("@MDAYNO" + "-" + "@MONTHNO") = '12-11'

		$myname= "Testuser"

		$username = "test"

EndSelect
 

If $username = @USERID

	;user is logged in, congratulate him/her

	MessageBox ("Congrats!", "Message", 64, 5)

Else

	;user not logged in, show message it's his/her birthday

	If $username <> "" 

		MessageBox ($myname + " has a birthday!", "Message", 64, 5)

	EndIf

EndIf

Check this:
$message = ""

Select 

        Case ("@MDAYNO" + "-" + "@MONTHNO") = '3-11'

            If @USERID = "firtlast"

               MessageBox ("Congrats!", "Message", 64, 5)

            Else

               MessageBox ("Firstname Lastname  has a birthday!", "Message", 64, 5)

            EndIf     

        Case ("@MDAYNO" + "-" + "@MONTHNO") = '12-11'

            If (@USERID = "nextlast") OR (@USERID = "otheruser")

               MessageBox ("Congrats!", "Message", 64, 5)

            Else

               MessageBox ("Nextname Lastname and Other User do have a birthday!", "Message", 64, 5)

            EndIf     

EndSelect

Thanks! I was thinking to difficult. I had the 'or', but was trying to make the "Nextname Lastname" and "Other User" variable.

Threat intelligence is often discussed, but rarely understood. Starting with a precise definition, along with clear business goals, is essential.

also i would like to add...
I would like not only that the user will get the pop up, also i would like that the other people on the network will get a reminder for this event.
I suppose that i will need two scripts, but more important for me is that user in my workplace will know about special events like birthdays by pop ups.

Again thanks.
