Sending Meeting Notices When Changing Multiple Reoccurring Meetings

      A method for grouping multiple meetings (e.g., meeting
scheduled once a week for 10 weeks) when sending a meeting notice to
the invitees of the meeting to notify them that the meeting
information has changed.
TERMINOLOGY:

      Multiple Meeting - A meeting scheduled to occur more than once
(e.g., a monthly department meeting scheduled for a year).

      A set of meetings that are internally linked together by a
unique number.  Each meeting in the set is also assigned a unique
number to the user to perform functions on a meeting of this set as a
separate entity.  The user can also perform functions on the set of
meetings.

      Occurrence - Each meeting in the set is referred to as an
occurrence of the first meeting in the set.  Originally the meetings
are added based off a common set of information.  Then the user is
allowed to modify each occurrence of the set.

      The figure represents the process which is followed to group
the multiple meetings into categories for sending meeting notices.

      Step 1--Determine if more than one occurrence in the multiple
meeting's set has been changed by the scheduler or requester of the
meetings.  If there is only one occurrence, then call the interface
to send the meeting notices to the applicable invitees (Step 10).

      Step 2--If there is more than one occurrence, find the first
occurrence in the set that has been changed by the requester or
scheduler.
