Abstract

Providing a meeting scheduling application program with a regular meeting function reduces meeting scheduling and keying time. In the area of software applications for computerized calendaring, it is desirable to schedule a regular meeting between two or more persons whose calendars are controlled by the application. The application searches the calendars for time blocks which match the meeting requirements, and presents the time blocks to the organizer for selection. When one of these time blocks is selected, the organizer provides additional information about the meeting, where it is to be held, the agenda, special requirements, etc., and a meeting notice is sent to the attendees.
