looking for Scheduled Task UI Ideas

Hello Experts,

I am looking for some examples/ideas to build a Scheduled Task UI web based for a client in C# .net.
I will be using Windows Task Scheduler to run a console app which will look for the schedule in DB.

Let me know if I am thinking in a right direction.

not sure that my article linked by Camillia will be helpful. Web apps normally don't have access to internal services like the scheduler.

Thanks for that comment, Eric.

My UI should create data entries for the scheduler in DB, that's it. Rest is done by the console app which will be triggered by Windows Task Scheduler.

Yeah, I mentioned it's not a web application.
This is the best money I have ever spent. I cannot not tell you how many times these folks have saved my bacon. I learn so much from the contributors.

These are predefined jobs to run on schedule, the user can change only the schedule.

If the user has authority to change the settings, then in order to provide them access, you should be able to use Windows Authentication.  If the user in question is accessing the site from a domain controlled machine, then you can just pass their credentials through and use quasi SSO:

With the correct user credentials then you should be able to interface with Windows Task Manager.

Another option, might be using something like Quartz.NET.
