Abstract

Disclosed is a Method for parameter selection using graphic user interface in a Web page/Portal and receiving notifications. If there are any updates to any particular parameter (without hyperlink) in a web-page, an instant notification is received by email or SMS or any other mode. Currently parameter cannot be specified for which require notifications. This is particularly important if there are changes in data about a particular person, place, thing, event, schedules etc and notifications are required. Web page needs to be revisited to know if there any changes/updates. Lot of time spent in ascertaining, if there are any changes to a particular parameter in a web-page. Particularly important if you are travelling and want to be abreast with the latest information on the parameter. Example is news sites, where news about a company changes and updates are needed. Particular parameter in the news-item can be specified. This will be a paradigm shift in how notifications are received from a web-page/portal on information wanted and not what the portal wants to provide.
