Abstract

This application allows a user to bypass certain calendar screens of the PROFS Program Product when accessing the calendar function. Users often want to reach specific sub-screens of the calendar function. To do this they must first wade through several menu screens before actually reaching the calendar screen they want. A program is provided that allows a user to type a command to invoke one of several electronic calendar functions instead of choosing an option from a main menu. A user can use a command to see his own or someone else's daily schedule, the schedules for several days in a row, or the schedules for a whole month in a grid format. He can also use a command to see several different schedules at a time (for example, all conference rooms or all the people in a department).
