Abstract

A data structure is described that provides a common way for applications to: (1) interchange and process calendar notes, (2) create, change or delete the notes from a remote terminal or system using communications protocol, (3) support applying an error action, security level, time stamp and a user-defined field to a calendar note, (4) provide the flexibility to build an ordered to-do list of calendar entry text items via an algorithm that provides a search and sort on time stamp and/or the user-defined field. This structure provides fields for like and unlike calendar products to interchange and to remotely create/change a Calendar Note entry.
