Topic alarm popup window @ alarm time?

Is there a way to make topic alerts popup when the alarm time occurs? Right now (in Windows 7) there is a sound and the bell icon shows up in the task bar. The sound is too quiet or sometimes my speaker is off and the alert on the taskbar is not enough. I would appreciate having the alarm pop up in front of all other windows. Thanks.

By the way, I love this feature.

I have this problem to. The pop up is there but often buried behind several other windows.

MindManager is not the only app with this problem. Warnings from Excel, Word and Outlook also hide themselves and leave you frustrated waiting for them to do something when they want you to do something!

Mark and Andrew,

I am converting this topic to an idea as there are no settings within MindManager to set Topic Alerts to pop up.

I also searched the options in both Outlook 2007 and 2010 and did not find any way of setting reminders to pop up and/or stay on top.

Thanks,
-Marian

Marian - did this ever get resolved? I am trying these alerts but without success and it appears to be the same issue mentioned in this conversation. For me these Alerts seem to be crucial to Mindmanagers mission as it were and yet I am finding they are sooooooo frustrating to use. It should be easy but honestly I am about to give up completely on Alerts.
