Web part or web application

I need to know if it's possible to build or find and application like this:

It will be in our intranet.  I need for anyone internal in our domain to be able to not have to login at all just go to the application or web page/site.  Then they need to be able to submit a form that has an issue number, employee name, employee number, issue description, date, and also have a submit to drop down that has a list of position names(like welding supervisor, human resources, information systems).  Then when they click submit I need it to automatically e-mail the submitted to person like weldingsuper@company.com.  I also need it to have a status box that has approved or denied.  Then I also need it to send a reminder e-mail if the item is over so many days old.  I also need it to sort the items by employee number.  But also have permissions so only the submitted to people can edit, delete, approve, deny any of the items, so I guess I would need it to have anonymous login and login information stored for it.

I just need to know if this is possible and what programs I need to build it or if there is already something out there that I can use as a base application and modify it.

I have a Windows Server 2003, with sharepoint services installed.  I have FrontPage 2003 and Visual Web Developer.  I am hoping with the combo of these programs it;s possible.

Ok, maybe I should start with an easier question.

Can I create a web application, that has items, or issues, or records, whatever you want to call them. Can I write in the code so that when ever someone selects Welding, as the submitted to field, that the address welding@company.com gets sent an e-mail stating they have a new item?  And then also gets an e-mail stating it is so many days old, after something like 2 weeks?

Well, with Visual Web Developer you should be able to create a web application with forms to accept the kind of input you're talking about and then send off an email to some address or other based on the submitted to field. You'll need someplace to store the data for your items, issues, records, whatever, like a database so the web app has someplace to store and retrieve the data from. You'll need an email server that you can access to send the emails. 

If you want someone to be emailed when an item is so many days old you'll probably want to do that as a seperate app not part of the web app. The web app will only be active when someone is in the UI doing something so if you did the reminder email as part of the web app and no one used the web app for 5 days or 3 weeks or whatever then no one would get reminder emails during that time. You probably want a standalone app or service that monitors the records and whenever it finds one that is more than X days old sends an email to whoever.

I do have an Exchange 2003 server with Windows Server 2003 and Sharepoint Services.  Now that I know it's possible, I also was wondering some other things. 

What is the difference between Windows Sharetpoint Services and DotNetNuke?  Should I look into DotNetNuke being I am looking at using ASP.NET 2.0?

I need to build an intranet for my company, am I researching the right stuff?  My boss thinks I am looking to deep into things and that I should be able to find a simple out of the box solution.  But with the specifics I described in my first post I think I will need to do alot more editing that he thinks.

I am going to be in a week long training on Developing ASP.NET Web Applications with Visual Studio 2005.  Do you think this is a good course for me to be taking?  Do you think I will learn the use of Visual Web Developer Express?

Does anyone know if I would need more than the Express edition (Visual Web Developer)?  I am willing to purchase what ever is needed but it seems I may not even need the VS 2005 Standard.

Ok, so there are many questions to answer.

Let's start with the class and software.  I would imagine a week-long class should at least get you up to speed with what you're going to need to do.  So, yes, it's a good idea.  Visual Web Developer will probably be fine, at least at first.  One tool that you (or I should say management) might like to have are some reports generated from any data.  If that is the case, I would suggest investing in Studio Developer which includes all the languages and Crystal Reports.

Before I delve into the technical questions, what is your coding background?  If you are fairly new to programming in general and your boss wants something soon, it might be in your best interest to invest in a third party application.  However, if you've been programming, but just not in ASP.NET, then take the class and build it yourself.

Let's break the application down into two seperate sections.  First, is the web app that allows for item entry and the admin section.  Second, is the reminder e-mails.

I'm going to address #2 first as I don't know how to do it, but I know what you can use to make it happen.  I would create a Windows Scheduled Task.  This task can be set to run on the server at a certain time (probably early morning since that's the slowest traffic time).  I would just make it run an IE page that makes a call to the DB to find the appropriate records, send the e-mails, then close the window.  All of the action would take place in the Page_Load event and shouldn't be more than 20-30 lines of code.  As for the Task, you'll need to Google that.  I've seen it used before, but I haven't played with them yet.

Ok, #1.  If everyone in the company has a windows login, then the likelihood of all company users being stored in Active Directory is probably pretty good.  I would use AD user info to dictate who could only submit and who has admin access.  Even better, if there is an AD group that would have admin access, that makes it all the easier (you could probably have one created if it doesn't already exist).  You would set up the item entry section, then create a asp:panel and set visible = false.  Inside that panel build a datagrid with edit, update, delete, etc. functionality.  On login (using Windows authentication), you would check to see if the user is a member of the admin AD group.  If they are, then change the panel visible to true, else do nothing.  Using AD would also let you get rid of some personal fields depending on what info is stored on each employee in AD (Name, Emp#, etc.).

Thanks for the help.

I am going to start off with the Visual Web Developer and if I run into the point that I need Visual Studio then we will purchase that.  I program forms and server scripts in Outlook and on our Exchange Server but no I don't have extensive programming background.  I beleive with some extra time to learn I should be able to get a web app written and usable myself without having to purchase one (I hope).

Guess I am just going to get started and follow your suggestions for e-mail and such.

Converting a VS 2005 Web Application to a VS .NET 2003 Web Application

What's the best way to go about this without rewriting the whole dang thing? I would probably create a new 2003 project, copy all of your aspx and other files into it, attempt a build and see what happens.  If you didn't use a lot of the new controls (like membership, personalization, masterpages etc, then you will probably be ok with just minor changes.  If you did rely on a lot of the newer c...

Difference between mobile web applications and standard web applications + mobile web forms in them ?

Since the code-behind looks a lot in the PC and in the PPC version, I'd like both versions to use the same files for the code. I'm left with 2 options : - either create a new mobile web application for each existing web application, and put all the code behind in .dlls which I'll call from each page ; - or, if this is possible (and I'd rather do it), simply add mobile web forms to the existing web applications and redirect at login to the appropriate ve...
