Abstract

The application provides any user the possibility to download automatically any dates of general interest into his personal groupware calendar. These dates of general interest are categorized by subject, so that any user is able to download only those dates which are of interest of himself. In case an user registers initially or the system recognizes changed dates for a registered user, a notification will be sent to the user including the dates of interest. The user can copy automatically these dates into his personal groupware calendar.
