Abstract

Consider a computer calendar that provides for the entry of a due-date item, which includes the names of the person for whom and from whom the take or thing is due, and a description of the task or thing. Refer to Fig. 1. This shows a typical page of due items when printed in due format. A problem occurs when the user requests a calendar be printed in a format where the special due-date page is not printed.

Alternate Processing of Calendar Due Items

       Consider a computer calendar that provides for the entry
of a due-date item, which includes the names of the person for whom
and from whom the take or thing is due, and a description of the task
or thing.  Refer to Fig. 1.  This shows a typical page of due items
when printed in due format.  A problem occurs when the user requests
a calendar be printed in a format where the special due-date page is
not printed.

      The due item is identified by the word "due" or other flag.
The new method identifies due items and if no due page is printed,
the due items are processed as things to do.  Refer to Fig. 2.  This
shows the same due items printed in a format where no due page is
printed.  In this case, the due item is printed as a thing to do in
the things to do column, with the from and for names printed
parenthetically. Since the page-one things to do area is always
printed, this method provides a compact display of otherwise
unprinted due-date items.  This makes the printed calendar more
useful.
