roject description: USE CASE: 1) User wants to have computer automatically/repeatedly select options on a website
2) User wants to be notified if a position becomes available
3) Notification should be: a)phone call b)text message c)flashing or siren on computer d) combination.
Normally user would have to click on different sites and see if they are available. If not he repeats the process. If it is available he can proceed.
Software should replace this process.
Details: A website online offers an interface for a test taker to find out if a seat is available to sit for an examination. There are 5 centers that offer the test. To schedule the test (currently) a user must click on one of five testing centers and if a postion becomes available they can opt to schedule the exam. If not they are told "There are no testing spaces available within your eligibility period." The majority of times they will be notified of this message. However, at several times during the course of a day, a position might become available.
The software should be able to substitute for a user and be able to automate the selection process and then notify the user if a position is available.
The notification might be an alarm, flashing light, phone call, a combination of these options...etc...
I will pay nothing upfront. All moneys will be paid upon completion of a working model. Project must be ready at quoted time or money will be deducted.
See screen shots.
My understanding of how the system might recognize when the page is different is for the program to recognize when text is present or absent in a certain location OR to do a word count of text on page to identify if page changes and then for that result to trigger an alarm
