Using C# to build an app which automatic email reminder? RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am not an IT professional, so I would like someone to point me in the right direction how to accomplish my goal.

    I am thinking to build a front end application as Assignment List, and I want the application to have two major features: 1) This is assignment requiring user to submit document for review(document itself does not need to be attached, user clicks a button to notify reviewer of submission. Reviewer knows where the file is stored.), and there is a deadline (Date format) for submission for review, I want the system to send out an email reminder (like one week before deadline) if user has not submitted the document for review. 2) Secondly, reviewing document will involve back and forth workflow, if the document does not pass, then reviewer will deny and user will need to fix it before re-submission. User could fail multiple submissions before finally pass.

    I have looked into sharepoint, but I have never found anything like "back and forth" feature. So I decide to build a custom application to include back and forth feature. But a window application seems will not be able to send automatic reminder, since program stops running when user closes the application.

    Any comments?

    Thanks.

    One part of the application will need to be a Windows form program, and the other part will need to be a Windows service program.
