Exchange SQL data via RSS

Hi,

In a SQL Server database I have created a view which contains appointments for each employee.
I want to exchange this data so each employee will get a RSS update feed containing their appointments for a specific day in one feed.
Employee      Start            End              Description      Location for appointment
John Doe      2015-08-05 09:00 2015-08-05 10:00	Task 2           Street 1  1234 AA Amsterdam
John Doe      2015-08-05 10:00 2015-08-05 10:30	Task AB          Way 1     2345 AA Utrecht
Mary Poppins  2015-08-05 09:00 2015-08-05 10:00	Task 3

Open in new window

Initiating the RSS will be done from within a Delphi application, where a user will enter a date (and optional a specific employee-ID) and RSS feeds will be created for all employees having appointments for given date.
Each employee will have it's own RSS feed location, so they will only receive their own appointments in their feeds.

Can anybody help me to set this up in an efficient way?

RSS Feeds are nothing but pure XML

...and view is not recommend here, rather create procedure with input parameters and procedure will filter out data depending on it... then put all out to rss xml

There are sites which describes differences like this or this one.
More on creating procedure...
I put few business logic into procedures too .... and get compact data out.
