Abstract

A method is described for automatically notifying a user of any type of inquiry made against any entry on his/her calendar. Capability is also provided to allow calendar entry security information to be exchanged between systems either locally or remotely. Security is provided for giving or denying access to calendar entries. Securing information in an electronic calendaring system is an important requirement in any system with confidential information. Salary, sales and accounting information may be intended for only a subset of a company's entire contingent to view. Other information such as staff meetings or lunch appointments, might be general enough to be of importance to a broader group of people. A method is necessary to manage and track access to the calendar information.
