Abstract

This enhancement to the calendar authorization process for the PROFS Program Product will reduce the amount of work the user must perform in order to authorize several individuals access to the user's calendar display screen and file. If a user is new to a company or changes departments within a company, he must then personally authorize all the people within his department to have access to his calendar. This function can be greatly time consuming if there is a large number of authorizations to be granted. This enhancement would allow a user to authorize an entire group of people at one time instead of one user at a time. As authorizations are selected or de-selected, other authorizations are also marked selected or de-selected if they are dependent upon the authority the user chose.
