Description: ************ I need a program that will deliver real time alerts to authorized users. One submission of a string of text by the operator would be sent to the users using this program. Detailed features for prgm: ************************** *Program should be easily installed by the user when they download the program *The program should have an always on top feature *Program can look simple but professional *Admin program and client program. Both programs run in windows. Admin program should allow an admin to post string of plain text that will be relayed to client program to receive text alerts *The program should be able to authorize users either by .htaccess or some other form of verification *Admin program should have paths to change where the .htaccess files are located on the server *Client program will have a Login/Password field when program is opened for user to login *Once the user is logged in, they begin receiving the alerts *The client side only needs to receive, no sending *Client receives 3 different forms of alerts. (market alerts, stock alerts, and news alerts) *Program will receive messages on average of 250 - 500 characters long in plain text posted by the operator (website will be storing and archive, not the program) I have a news script now but it would be nice if the program could post to the current script. The current script is built in cgi *Each day will have about 10 to 20 posts *Client program should be able to have sound alerts when there is a new text alert posted from Admin ( and maybe blinking with pop-up windows, and blinking message alert in the taskbar.) *Would be nice if the program could have user defined sound alerts for each alert ( 3 total ) *Would be nice if the client program would have two options for users to add their cell phone number and email address with options to send alerts to cell and email as well ************************* MORE IN DEPTH ABOUT THIS PROGRAM AND ITS FEATURES IT SHOULD HAVE: ************************* (1) This program should use minimal bandwidth on our shared host server (our current shared hosting provider gives us 20GB/month of transfer). If we have 500 people using the client program, we would like a way to post a string of text (an alert message) to our users quickly all at once without taking a long time to upload to each user. The client software should receive the new alerts with one string of text posted by the admin program.
------------------------------------------------------- Complete and fully-functional working program(s) in executable form as well as complete source code of all work done. Complete copyrights to all work purchased. ------------------------------------------------------- (2) The client and admin program should run like a regular based program in windows. Client program should install from an .exe file and the program will run on the users windows desktop. The admin program should install as an .exe file and will run on his windows desktop. (3) We would like to have cell phone (SMS) alerts and email alerts to our users. Users who choose the option to receive this type of alert from within their program should be able to do so. When the admin posts a string of text from his windows based program, it will be delivered to everyone in 3 forms(email/cell phone/standard format which is from admin program to client program). Cell phone (SMS) alerts and email alerts can be implemented as an update in the future. It is not critical to have these two now (email/cell phone). (4) When the user logs into the program, he should see all of the previous alerts for the day. For example, If the user logs in the program at 10am and there were 3-4 alerts before 10am they will be able to see these alerts for the day. Also, user should be able to access previous posts from weeks and months back from the program (the overhead of posts will be stored on our shared host server, not directly on the users computer). (5) Program will need to be able to access two password files (.htaccess). One will be for demo users, and the other will be for members. (6) There is one problem we have that needs to be resolved as best as possible. We need to have 2 password files. 1 password file will be for authorized members. 1 password file will be for users who signup to our website to receive a 2-week free trial demo of live data (alerts). The program must be able to check these two files that are stored on our hosting server each time the user enters his username/password into the program to login. Also, these two password files will be used for the online website and members area of our website. Our problem now is that we do NOT want people to signup more then once for a 2-week free trial account. The only way this should be possible is if the user formats his computer every 2 weeks to re-install the program. I doubt many people will do this, as it requires time and knowledge of reformatting a computer. I am thinking the program can have an expire date stored in the registry to stop working 2 weeks from the users sign up date of his/her account. But then the program as well as the username/password stored in the password file would need to be reactivated when the user decides to pay for his membership. Maybe there is a way for us to control the client program with a registration code and from the admin program we can set it active or inactive, making the program to work or not work on each computer. So the client/users program will expire after 2 weeks, and then if they decide to signup and pay for our services, we can reactivate their program again from the admin program manually. Is this possible? We will need to offer a trial of live data no matter what (equivalent to what paying membership access users receive) (7) We want to be able to send out a chat request from the admin program to users using the client program so we can talk to them 1 on 1 (users can not request a chat from us: only admin to client chat is allowed) (8) We need some way we can message all users at one time (not an alert/post, but a system message)
(9) We currently have a news script called News Pro(or Coranto) to manage our news posts to our members area website. We would like to get rid of this. We would like write our news alerts in the admin program and have it post directly to our website. We currently have 9 categories for news alerts, however only 3 are real-time. We would like to be back to manage all data for the 9 catagories via the admin program. We need to be able to go back and edit news posts submitted to our website under each of the categories, or either be able to delete them and re-submit them. It would be nice if the program would allow us to choose how many categories we are allowed to use just incase we decide to increase this on our members area. Currently we have 9 categories, maybe in the admin section the admin can define 7 categories, or 12 categories. (10) This program should be friendly and professional
## Deadline information
We need a coder who is willing to do future updates for us. One who is willing to interact with us during the making of this program so we can sort out minor features that may need to be added in the making of this program. Also, we have a tight budget of $150 to $200 US. We need this program as soon as possible. Next, if you are interested in a trade for this program in learning active investing instead of cash, please email us and we will give you full details on this trade. Thanks. If it is easier for you to read all of this information via URL you may do so at [url removed, login to view] Upon request, we can be flexible with the delivery deadline if needed. Please contact us if this is a problem.
