Hello there,

I am new to the Forums, but I think that I could be a contributing member of this thriving community.

Here is what I am needing help with:

I want to create a batch file that looks at an open website in Internet Explorer (that will be left open at all times). This bat file will need to refresh the window and look for a specific phrase on the website. If it finds that phrase it will open a pop up window that will notify the user (me) that it found that phrase.

I can't seem to be able to find anything on the subject. I hope that you guys can help me. Thank you in advance.

Whatsup application can do this. I'm assuming your looking an error on the website, or a change from what it should be.

We get leads sent to us, and basically I want to stay on top of them in a matter of seconds and not minutes. So the script or bat file would open the site - check it for a new lead - then msg me in a pop up window whenever we get a new one. (Sure beats pressing the refresh button every 10 seconds) I get email notifications every 15 minutes... so that's not working the best.

Couldn't you add a script on the web server to the submit button to create the lead, and also send an e-mail.
