Isochronous Confirmation of Delivery Icon

      Current methods allow an originator to receive a Confirmation
of Delivery (COD) notice based on the amount of time a user
views/hears an isochronous object.  This disclosure describes an icon
for which the user can monitor the status of such an isochronous
confirmation notice.  The Figure illustrates a grid presentation of
the icon that may appear on an originator's graphical desktop
environment, where each slice represents a department and each
latitude sector, i.e., ring, represents a specified distribution.
The shaded area of a sector represents the proportion of time that a
department has accessed/viewed a designated distribution.  Those
skilled in the art recognize that the slices of latitudes and
longitudes could be associated with a plurality of enterprise
specific attributes.
