Abstract

A method is described to allow the user to modify or add times appearing in the day mode of a scheduler and to have lines with no times on them to use in entering information such as a To Do List. The user may insert text only lines and modify or add times, in any order, in the day mode of the Scheduler without affecting scheduler processing (e.g., setting an alarm). In the day mode of the scheduler, the user is presented with a screen. If it is a new day, the default start and stop times and time increment are used to generate an initial screen. Once the user has entered data, the schedule is saved to diskette and is re-displayed each time the user selects that date. The cursor is positioned on the first line of the schedule in column nine.
