Abstract

Consider a computer calendar system which provides a printed calendar. The preference of some calendar users is to have a place to write notes during the day on the day's calendar pages. Current calendar systems do not provide such note space or provide a small amount of note space on each pages.

Calendar Note Page

       Consider a computer calendar system which provides a
printed calendar.  The preference of some calendar users is to have a
place to write notes during the day on the day's calendar pages.
Current calendar systems do not provide such note space or provide a
small amount of note space on each pages.

      The proposed method makes available an optional second page for
the day's printed calendar which provides note space.  Refer to the
figure.  This shows a possible note page for a day.  This page is
printed with the name of the calendar printed (usually the name of
the calendar owner, but, for assets, such as conference rooms, it is
not necessarily the name of a person) and the date.  This page can be
used for date-related handwritten notes which form a permanent diary
or contemporaneous record of the day.

      The method employed is to accept a request from the user to
print the additional note page and to pass this request in encoded
format to the page calendar page formatting process.

      Passed also are the date and calendar name to be printed.  The
print process formats and prints the calendar note page.  The result
of this method is a more usable printed calendar.
