Management wants us to come up with a way to disseminate information to users via "splash screens" when the user logs into the computer in the mornings. The information could/will change on a daily basis. We've come up with a way to make it happen, but it's extremely cumbersome and time-consuming for IT. We currently are:
Adding a line to each user's log-in script to open z:\abc.html in IE during log-in (if the file exists, it opens it automatically)
Creating the abc.html page which includes the desired information in a development folder
Creating a copy.bat file to copy abc.html from the development folder to Z:\
Creating a scheduled task to run the copy.bat file at midnight the morning it should appear
Creating a delete.bat file to delete Z:\abc.html at 11:59 the night of the day it ran
Creating a scheduled task to run the delete.bat file and remove the file so it doesn't appear next day
As you can see, for every screen we need to create, there are a bunch of steps. If any change has to be made, we have to redo most of the steps from scratch. Doing it this way does allow us to schedule them in advance so someone doesn't have to remember/be available every afternoon to update the screen for tomorrow.
Surely there is a way/software to accomplish something similar without all this craziness?
