Abstract

This article describes a method for presenting additional features for events on a free-style type of calendar. Some electronic calendars today show your daily events in a list with one event following another, and they are ordered by their start times. This is beneficial because the user can see all the events and their descriptions. Event descriptions are not hidden, and the user does not have to go to another panel in order to see the whole event. For example, an event would be presented in the following manner: 9:00am 11:00am Status Meeting 6F7 Bring last week's presentation foils (Image Omitted) However, other electronic calendars offer ways to further classify and characterize events, such as status, priority and keywords.
