Abstract

With the ever-increasing volume of notes/e-mail generation, recipients are overwhelmed and need more sophisticated sorting mechanisms to determine the priority of when (or whether) a particular note should be read. Users currently depend on superficially available information, such as date/time that a note was generated, the name of the user that sent the note, and information that appears in the subject line. This does not provide exhaustive categorization. The goal of this invention is to supplement the existing criteria with additional means of classification.
