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.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

I've used by Éric Moreau a lot. Not web based but works great. I converted the code to C# to use.

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.

but if your UI is web, I doubt you will be able to interact with the local scheduler. that would be  nightmare for security!
Yeah, I mentioned it's not a web application.

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.
