I'm building a task scheduler and i will like to display an alert or a notification at a particular time the task was scheduled for. I read something about cron jobs in php but i'm totally lost. How can this be achieved in ASP.NET MVC using C#.
Basically the user creates a task and sets a time for the task. When the time is reached, a notification is displayed in the browser assuming the user still has the browser opened otherwise, when next the user logs on, the notification still displays.
