The method of organizing meeting effective through audience counter

My invention will work as below:
1) When inviter sends out a meeting invitation, there will be a audience counter created, this audience counter instance will associated with the meeting instance, and be saved in the server of calendar system. The audience counter will be initialized as 1,

which means the inviter himself/herself.

2) When people accept the meeting invitation, the audience counter will be increase 1, and the server will update this information to all people's calendar,

who have already accepted the meeting invitation, of

who have already accepted the meeting invitation.

4) The audience counter instance will be deleted from server when the meeting is out of date, otherwise, it

will work as described above.

All people who will join the meeting can see the up to date information of audience counter

                                                          , then they can arrange their time accordingly, for an extreme example, if you see there is few people will join the meeting from audience counter, then you may not join it too.
