Abstract

Disclosed is a method of ensuring that when a calendar event is copied to another user's calendar, the recipient will indeed be notified. When a calendar event is copied to another user's calendar, this service will dial the recipient's phone number. The phone number to be dialed is customizable by the recipient in a user profile. Therefore this application is activated if the recipient specifies a telephone number in his user profile. When an event is added to the calendar and a phone number exists in the profile, this service is activated. If the recipient does not answer the number dialed and has an answering device, a message will be left. If the recipient does not answer the phone and does not have an answering device, the service will continue to call periodically until the user has actually received the message.

Assurance of Copied Calendar Event Notification via Phone Message

      Disclosed is a method of ensuring that when a calendar event is
copied to another user's calendar, the recipient will indeed be
notified.  When a calendar event is copied to another user's
calendar, this service will dial the recipient's phone number.  The
phone number to be dialed is customizable by the recipient in a user
profile.  Therefore this application is activated if the recipient
specifies a telephone number in his user profile.  When an event is
added to the calendar and a phone number exists in the profile, this
service is activated.  If the recipient does not answer the number
dialed and has an answering device, a message will be left.  If the
recipient does not answer the phone and does not have an answering
device, the service will continue to call periodically until the user
has actually received the message.  The calling interval will be set
by the individual in the user profile.
