Abstract

This enhancement makes several improvements to the meeting notices distributed by the calendar function of the PROFS Program Product. With this enhancement a user may specify another authorized PROFS user as the requester of the meeting. This is useful when a secretary is scheduling a meeting for her principal. Another powerful tool allows access to the set of commands present in the regular PROFS note function. These commands include carbon copying individuals on the meeting notice, asking for an acknowledgment when the notice is received, and imbedding other files. Another enhancement allows a principal to forward a meeting notice to the secretary and have the secretary add the meeting notice to the principal's calendar by pressing a program function key.
