I'm unsure of the language that this will need to be written in, but here are the requirements:
1. We have developed an extensive online task management system.
2. Many employees of our client will log in and add/edit/update tasks.
3. We need a Windows based application to run on each of the employees computers that will notify the user that a task has been posted for them online.
Here's the basic process ..
a) Task created online for user 'chris'
b) On Chris' computer a small pop-up window will appear in the bottom right corner of the screen showing 'Jeff has created a task for you'
c) I don't know how this will work, but somehow the Windows application needs to constantly query something online - a MySQL database, text file, etc to see if there is a new note for the user in question.
d) Naturally the employee will need to log in on their application to ensure that they only receive notifications for them.
e) It should have similiar appearance and functionality to when you're using MSN messenger (or indeed any other chat application) and one of your friends logs in.
If you have any ideas how this might work then get in touch. We can then discuss specific details.
Look forward to hearing from you.
