I have been asked to develop a small application by a friend of mine. He runs a small construction business. At the moment, he keeps track of what jobs his employees are assigned to using a table drawn on a whiteboard. Each "cell" has a job name associated with it, and colour coded magnets are stuck to the whiteboard in each job cell to indicate which employee is assigned where.
He basically wants me to create a desktop application that accomplishes this exact task, including the ability to create a new job and add small graphical indicators corresponding to an employee. He wants to be able to drag/drop these "magnets" between jobs, since employees are often reassigned. The idea is to put this display on a big screen in the office, so everyone can see who is where.
Does an application that can accomplish this task already exist? I'm not opposed to doing this for him, but if something is already out there that can do this, I'd rather not write a potentially buggy app when a better version could already be out there and ready to go.
This should run on Windows 10. Price range would ideally be free, or fairly inexpensive.
