Abstract

A data structure is described that provides a common way for applications to: (1) interchange and process calendar notes, (2) create, change or delete the notes from a remote terminal or system using communications protocol, (3) support applying an error action, security level, time stamp and a user-defined field to a calendar note, (4) provide the flexibility to build an ordered to-do list of calendar entry text items via an algorithm that provides a search and sort on time stamp and/or the user-defined field. This structure provides fields for like and unlike calendar products to interchange and to remotely create/change a Calendar Note entry.

Calendar Notes Interchange Data Structure

A data structure is described that provides a common way for applications to:
(1) interchange and process calendar notes, (2) create, change or delete the notes from a remote terminal or system using communications protocol, (3) support applying an error action, security level, time stamp and a user-defined field to a calendar note, (4) provide the flexibility to build an ordered to-do list of calendar entry text items via an algorithm that provides a search and sort on time stamp and/or the user-defined field. This structure provides fields for like and unlike calendar products to interchange and to remotely create/change a Calendar Note entry. It consists of a two-byte-length parameter, a two-byte- structure type parameter, an error action parameter to activate or deactivate error testing when the Calendar Notes Structure is processed, an entry security parameter to control access, a user-defined field to support searching and sorting according to a user's assigned priority or code, a CGCSGID to select the code page and character set for the notes, a date and time parameter, a time stamp parameter and a text character field. The note structure is configured in a common way to allow accessing the note information with an algorithm and then responding to the provided information. The responses may be to display the note to the calendar user or to display a list of the text items in a selected order using the time stamp an...
