Help!
Software scheduler program question.

I have a need for a software program that will help my department keep track of task due dates and task completion dates. A program that will send out an email warning if a task isn't done on time and will allow the person doing the work to at least acknowledge that the task was in fact done that day.

Since only a few of my people have laptops this program might best run on something like an Ipad or other smaller notebook type computer.

What I envision is: Man A logs in and gets a list of 5 things to do that day. As he does them or at the end of the day he checks each of these 5 items off his list. No email to the boss needs to be sent and a 28 day cycle is reset. One of these work items may be on an 84 day cycle or a 364 day cycle and a reminder is sent for those items when they are due.

We have monthly, quarterly and annual federally mandated tests we must do and if set up on a 28 day schedule we always have a 2 day grace period between our standards and the Feds.

Any ideas?

Thanks in advance, Dan

This one might do, but research closely to verify that it meets all your requirements.

And if it doesn't, I believe that this company will customize the program to do what you want... at a price.

Impressive. I wish I had a clue what I was reading I think it best to contact them with my needs and see if that works with them.

Thanks, HF.

Have you looked at MS Outlook?

It contains a "Task" feature, alerts, and reminders. If you need some thing simple / basic, this might be a good option.

I have Outlook on my work 'puter. Been fiddling with it and can't find a reasonably easy way to do what I want. Outlook is like a Swiss Army knife. It does many, many things but doesn't really shine in any one of them.
