A Method and System for Automatically Updating a Calendar based on User Tasks, Priorities and Due Dates

Disclosed is a method and system for automatically updating a calendar based on user tasks, priorities, and due dates.

In one implementation, the method and system enable a user to perform an initial configuration. The user creates a list of tasks to perform. The tasks can be manually or automatically set by the user. The user can specify task criteria such as, but not limited to, due date of the task, priority of the task, and duration or time required for completing the task. For example, the user can select the priority of the task as mandatory, preferred, or optional. The user can also prioritize the tasks such as meeting, projects, and activities based on the person involved. The person involved can be a manager, an individual, a co-worker, a project lead, and so on. The duration or the time required to complete the task can be fixed or unknown at the start of the task. The user can also have an option to select a target to complete the task, which can be broken down into

increments of time such as 30 minutes, 1 hour, 2 hour, X hour, and so on.

After the initial configuration is set, the method and system enable the user to obtain a list of recommended tasks. For instance, the user can access the method and system

when the user has some free time, for example when a meeting is cancelled or there is a change in the schedule.

Fig. 1 illustrates an exemplary flow of the method and system.
