Sending input Data from MIT App to ESP8266 and then to Arduino

As the title suggest, is it possible to send data from MIT app to ESP8266 via SoftAP mode? My idea is to have the user input data (in this case date and time for an alarm system) with the MIT App, and then the app will send the input data (date and time) to the ESP module (via SoftAP mode). After the data has been received by the ESP module, it will then send it to the Arduino (Arduino is connected to multiple components such as LCD, LED and more).

I am doing my university’s Final Year Project, I have this idea in mind but after hours of researching, I am still confused at if this would be possible. Any pointers/advise/opinion and suggestions are much appreciated.

Many Thanks.
