I think I already know the answer to this question, but I'm hoping I am wrong.
My background is in SQL, specifically T-SQL alongisde SSMS. I rely pretty heavily on agent jobs for periodic tasks. My question is: Is there any similar concept of an 'agent' or scheduled task in Share Point?
Specifically, I would like an email escalation period. ie, after a week of an item sitting waiting to be approved, can we have sharepoint notify someone about it? I dont think so, but I am hoping to be proved wrong.
