Method and System for Rescheduling or Cancelling a Meeting Based on a Set of Situational Threshold Rules

Disclosed is a method and system for rescheduling or cancelling a meeting based on a set of situational threshold rules. The set of situational threshold rules are evaluated based on the level of participation in the meeting. The meeting may be scheduled at a specified location. Accordingly, a first set of participants may attend the meeting remotely using mobile devices. Further, a second set of participants may attend the meeting at the specified location. The set of situational threshold rules are specified by the moderator and define levels of participation required for rescheduling or canceling a meeting. The method and system disclosed herein automatically reschedules or cancels a meeting by evaluating the set of situational thresholds. For example, a situational threshold rule may be defined as a minimum percentage of participants required to be present for the specified location for the meeting. Alternatively, a situational threshold may be defined as a minimum percentage of participants required to be remotely attending the meeting using a mobile device over a specified connection. For example, the specified connection may be a Virtual Private Network (VPN) connection. In another exemplary instance, a situational threshold may be defined as a minimum percentage of participants required to be attending the meeting from a specified location.

For example, a moderator may schedule a meeting for discussing confidential matters of an organization. The moderator may set a threshold specifying X% of the participants to be present for the meeting at the specified location, Y% of the participants to be attending the meeting remotely, and Z% of the participants attending the meeting from a local office of the organization for proceeding with the meeting. There may be a scenario, when the level of participation in the meeting is lesser than the levels specified in the threshold rule. For example, percentage of participants present at the specified location of the meeting may be lesser than X%. Accordingly, the method and system automatically cancels the meeting.

In another example, the moderator may set a thres...
