whether if you logout time also the task want to run ???

then with background process(batch program this will not depends on your application ) ... and update the DB ..... then when ever user enter the web page then what are all the task pending ...

If No then ....

create 2 tables  one is task status and other one is task to perform

you will fetch the task user and status  open .
if task compleate then set status as closed .

then it will show only open status ...
