Default Update info on home page via FTP/other


I have a site where the team manager needs to put information on the home page about cancellations/ time or location changes/etc.

Unfortunately, they don't want to edit the page but would prefer uploading information (FTP, email, other) and have it magically appear in the correct place on the page.

Any one have any ideas?

Create an Excel spreadsheet with an editable cells containing the schedules.

Use ADO and ASP on your home page to query the Excel spreadsheet. Store these schedule times in Application variables.

You can also put in some logic to check the file time of the spreadsheet (using FileSystemObject) to determine if your Application variables need to be updated.

Now all your group leader has to do is upload the Excel spreadsheet.
