    Keeping check boxes checked... :)

    I need to create a very basic calendar for use at my workplace, where we need to monitor whether or not Customer A has completed an order, or sent in a file (order) to us each day. We have 3-4 employees who need to have access to this information at any given time. So what I have created is a plain HTML page with a table that resembles a calendar, with check boxes in each "day" next to the customer name. My question is how do I get those boxes to stay checked, between the 3 or 4 users? User A checks that Customer A has sent in their file, when User B gets on the page, the box is unchecked...

    Anyway to do this? Maybe even have the option for Customer A disappear after someone has checked it...I know I'm reaching here.Keeping check boxes checked... :)-screenhunter_654-jul.-31-15.08.jpg

    Not with HTML alone. Surely, somehow the state of customer orders must be or is stored somewhere, as in a database, or isn’t it? So, the server-side script that retreives the info from the database is responsible for writing the HTML “checked” attribute if the checkbox is supposed to be checked.

    The file comes in through an AS400 database, which is in a datacenter, and we don't really have access to the database file. That's what I was afraid of...maybe I need to look more at a database of some sort of our own, outside the AS400... thanks for the reply.
