We need a script, which can automate yahoo group browsing. All the activities, which a user is allowed to perform on yahoo groups manually, have to be done automatically by this tool.(Adding/ deleting members, send invites/messages etc.)
1) We will provide the login details of the group to the tool (username/password)
2) Tool will log in to the group and perform the activities. The sequence of activities will be provided in the control panel section of tool
3) Tool will pickup Email IDs from a database, which will have IDs bifercated under different catagories. Tool will perform category wise activities.
4) It's importatnt the yahoo shud not block this tool. However, since we are performing only the allowed user activities, I dont think it's breach of service agreement.
5) It shud also take care of the fact that the page sequence or page structure of yahoo froup may change, this tool shud have built in capabilities (May be fo eg, page URL sequence defination in the control panel)
6) It will generate reports of ids added / deleted for a specific category / group on daily / weekly / monthly basis
