Im setting up a very basic rails app and have a question about the needed migrations & associations. Basically, my app is an occasion reminder service that emails users when occasions that they select or input are coming up. Occasions will be selected from a checkbox type list or alternatively manually input by the user (name and date of the occasion). Users can have_many occassions. How would i set this up in my models? So far i have: class Reminder < ActiveRecord::Base attr_accessible :date, :name belongs_to :user end class User < ActiveRecord::Base attr_accessible :address, :birthday, :city, :email, :gender, :interests, :name, :postal_code has_many :reminders end Thanks!

In the text you say a user has many occasions but in the code you have called them Reminders. I would have thought that the object in the database is an occasion, then you generate reminders for that occasion as required. Colin

Have you worked through some tutorials to give you some insight into the basics of Rails? railstutorial.org is good and is free to use online. If you work right through that, doing the exercises and so on then you should be better placed to get going. Colin
