Calendar Entry Inviting Procedure

In electronic calendar systems, only the meeting owner/creator can invite attendees.

An invitee cannot invite a third person.

The novel contribution is an interface and a protocol for inviting third parties to a meeting.

To forward a meeting to another person, an invitee can select a new option, "Please Invite xxx". The owner of the meeting receives a request to add the person to the meeting. The owner can either accept or decline the request. In addition, the owner of the meeting can select "Auto-Accept" that essentially allows anyone to add third parties to a meeting.
