Abstract

In a computer calendaring application having a meeting scheduling function, scheduling time is reduced and more meeting organizer control is imparted by limiting eligible event times to a time or day as specified by the organizer of the meeting. Consider a computer scheduling application in which the organizer of a meeting specifies the names of the desired attendees, the length of the meeting desired, and an acceptable range of dates when the meeting is to take place. In this application, eligible dates and times are determined and presented to the organizer for selection. Flexibility is imparted to the application by allowing the organizer of the event to limit the list of available times to, for example, a specific day of the week or time of day.
