Project and Calendar Summary View

      Provided is a technique for summarizing project planning
information on calendars in order to overcome deficiencies with use
of conventional techniques.

      Conventional Calendar and Project capabilities are provided.
These two sets of capabilities are enhanced as follows:
     Allow users to designate project milestones so as to display
them on a user's calendar.
     Allow users to designate calendar events so as to display them
on project planning charts, e.g., program evaluation and review
techniques.
     Project events placed on a user's calendar are treated like
other calendar events, e.g., meetings.  Similar capabilities are
provided for calendar events placed on project plans.
     Allow project events placed on a user's calendar to be edited
like other calendar events.  Similar capabilities are provided for
calendar events added to project plans.
     Allow integration of project data to include the work and events
of multiple users.

      The benefits to an end user are as follows: intuitive and easy
to use techniques for project planning; consistent techniques for
interaction with calendar and project information; extended
capabilities for calendar; and improved productivity and reduced
worksteps.
