Method and System for Ranking Event Attendees to Determine Event Effectiveness

Typically, effectiveness of a certain event may be determined by number of attendees present in the event. When all the invited attendees are present, the effectiveness of the event is high. In a scenario where a few attendees are absent, the effectiveness of the event decreases. In the same manner, if important attendees are missing from the event, the overall effectiveness of the event further decreases.

Disclosed is a method and system for ranking attendees of an event to determine effectiveness of the event. An "effectiveness" scale for the event is computed and an "importance factor" rating is assigned for each attendee of an event to determine effectiveness of the event. In this case, the organizer of the event is able to take a decision regarding whether an event needs to be rescheduled in case the effectiveness is low.

In a scenario, when an event is created, the effectiveness of the event is initially assigned as 0%. After creating the event, the event organizer adds attendees to the event and allocates a certain percent to each attendee based on how important they are to the meeting. The event planner may manually look for a date and time that is open for all attendees or pick a range of days and enter the length of the event. In the second case, the system goes through the time slots for the desired date range to determine the effectiveness scale for that certain day and time slot using the attendee's schedules. As a result of the automated look up, the event organizer is given an effectiveness date...
