Description

SHARED DIGITAL CALENDAR SYSTEM FIELD OF THE INVENTION

The present invention relates to a shared digital calendar system for sharing electronic calendars for a group of individuals, and more specifically to communication routines, data structures and client/server architectures implementing such calendar system.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION

Calendars used for organization of daily activities for individuals and groups of individuals have moved from being based on physical paper to the digital domain. Digital calendars are handled and displayed by various types of electronic devices. In recent years the use of handheld portable electronic devices has increased rapidly. These portable electronic devices have the advantage of being highly mobile and are for the most part readily available, providing easy access to the internet and networks in general. This makes them suitable for handling digital electronic calendars.

Organization of activities for a group of individuals often requires display of calendars for several individuals at once to provide an overview of activities within the group. This is particularly challenging on portable electronic devices with relatively small graphical user interfaces. Further, limitations in network bandwidth, notably in relation to wireless mobile networks, require data transmission to be handled with care in order not to delay data transmission or incur avoidable costs. Such concerns generally have to be balanced with the need for ensuring that users of mobile devices are kept up to date, i.e. that relevant information is pushed to the users at sufficiently short intervals, and the need for keeping server loads and server CPU usage at a minimum.

SUMMARY OF THE INVENTION

It is an object of embodiments to provide a shared digital calendar system for a group of users that will enable shared digital calendar users to take advantage of the benefits of portable electronic devices. Particularly, it may be an object to provide a shared digital calendar system with functionality specialized for groups, while improving calendar displaying on portable electronic devices. It is a further object of embodiments to provide a computer readable medium containing instructions, which when executed by a computer perform a method for sharing electronic calendars with functionality specialized for groups, while improving calendar displaying on portable electronic devices. It is a further object of embodiments to provide a computer-implemented method for sharing electronic calendars for a group that provides functionality specialized for groups, while improving calendar displaying on portable electronic devices. It is a further object of embodiments of the invention to provide communication routines, data structures and client/server architectures

implementing such calendar system in a fast, reliable and secure manner, which ensure that relevant information is pushed to users whilst ensuring that CPU capacity at the portable electronic devices and server CPU capacity are balanced.

According to a first aspect, a shared digital calendar system for sharing electronic calendars for a group of at least two individuals is provided. The system comprises a server computer system and at least two portable electronic devices. Each portable electronic device comprises a graphical user interface. The server computer system is configured to define a group of individuals associated with the group, and further configured to store calendar entry data and calendar meta data. The calendar meta data associates specific calendar entries to specific individuals of the group. Each of the at least two portable electronic devices is configured to:

- receive the calendar entry data and calendar meta data;

- associate the calendar entry data with specific individuals of the group by use of the calendar meta data; - define a plurality of view modes providing instructions for displaying calendar entry data; and

- display graphical representations of the calendar entry data associated with specific individuals of the group at dedicated parts of a graphical user interface according to either one of the predetermined view modes. In a second aspect, the present invention provides a computer readable medium containing instructions, which when executed by a computer perform a method for sharing electronic calendars for a group of at least two individuals in a system comprising a server computer system and at least two portable electronic devices, the method comprising the steps of: the server computer system performing the steps of: - defining a group of individuals associated with the group; and - storing calendar entry data and calendar meta data, the calendar meta data associating specific calendar entries to specific individuals of the group, and the at least two portable electronic devices performing the steps of:

- receiving the calendar entry data and calendar meta data;

- associating the calendar entry data with specific individuals of the group by use of the calendar meta data;

- defining a plurality of view modes providing instructions for displaying calendar entry data; and

- displaying graphical representations of the calendar entry data associated with specific individuals of the group at dedicated parts of a graphical user interface according to either one of the predetermined view modes.

In a third aspect, the present invention provides a method for sharing electronic calendars for a group of at least two individuals in a system comprising a server computer system and at least two portable electronic devices, the method comprising the steps of: the server computer system performing the steps of:

- defining a group of individuals associated with the group; and

- storing calendar entry data and calendar meta data, the calendar meta data associating specific calendar entries to specific individuals of the group, and the at least two portable electronic devices performing the steps of:

- receiving the calendar entry data and calendar meta data;

- associating the calendar entry data with specific individuals of the group by use of the calendar meta data;

- defining a plurality of view modes providing instructions for displaying calendar entry data; and - displaying graphical representations of the calendar entry data associated with specific individuals of the group at dedicated parts of a graphical user interface according to either one of the predetermined view modes.

Thanks to the plurality of view modes, utility of the limited area of a graphical user interface of a mobile device may be enhanced. The view modes are preferably definable by the user of each portable device, or selectable by the user among a plurality of pre-defined settings. Thus, each user may have an influence on how information is displayed and which information is displayed. Each view mode is preferably defined by the amount or type of information made available in a graphical user interface of the portable device, and by the graphical configuration of the information in the graphical user interface.

It will be appreciated that the shared digital calendar system according to the first aspect is for controlling and displaying shared digital calendars using portable electronic devices and a server computer system. In the present context the term "portable electronic device" should be interpreted to mean any electronic device which is portable. Examples of common portable electronic devices comprising a touch-sensitive display are smartphones, tablets and laptops. The group of individuals may be any group of individuals including but not limited to a group of employees in a company, a group of team members, a group of family members, etc.

In the system according to the first aspect, the group of individuals, the calendar entry data and calendar meta data are defined by the server computer system. Individuals access the calendar through portable electronic devices. The portable electronic devices are configured to receive the calendar entry data and calendar meta data. By way of the calendar meta data, the portable electronic devises are able to associate the calendar entry data with specific individuals of the group. For entry of new calendar entries, each portable device may in particular be configured to receive calendar entry data and calendar meta data by user input through a user interface, such as a graphical user interface of each device. Each device may further comprise a communications interface for passing such data received by user input onto the server computer system. The communications interface is further preferably configured to receive previously stored calendar entry data and calendar meta data from the server computer system. The communications interface is further configured to receive calendar entry data and calendar meta data entered by devices of other users and transmitted from the portable electronic devices of such users to the server computer system . In this way, all calendar entry data and calendar meta data for individuals of the group are stored in a central location and it is possible to define a single common calendar that is accessible to a group of individuals.

The server computer system may further be configured to define subgroups of individuals associated with a specific group, and to assign specific rights to individuals assigned to specific subgroups. Such rights may relate to creating a calendar entry and/or deleting a calendar entry and/or associating individuals with the specific group and/or excluding individuals from the group and/or defining an additional subgroup of individuals. For example, a group of individuals may consist of a family of adults and children. One subgroup may consist of the adults, and another subgroup may consist of the children. In another example, one group may consist of employees of a department of an enterprise, whereby sales persons, engineers and managers may define respective subgroups.

At least one of the at least two portable electronic devices, and preferably all of them, may be configured such that all graphical representations associated with a specific one of the individuals share the same distinct graphical characteristic. Thus, for example

representations associated by a specific individual may be shown in a distinct colour in the graphical user interface of the electronic device, or by a distinct graphical symbol. Users' ability to swiftly identify relevant information in the graphical user interface is thereby facilitated. In order to standardise the display of information in the graphical user interface of the portable electronic devices, the server computer system may be configured to instruct all the portable electronic devices to cause all graphical representations associated with a specific one of the individuals to share the same distinct graphical characteristic. Thus, the sharing of devices is facilitated, and user convenience is enhanced as regards the ability to swiftly and easily identify information in the graphical user interface. At least one of the view modes may provide the portable electronic device with instructions for creating in its graphical user interface an overview of a plurality of days, each of the plurality of days having assigned a part of the graphical user interface, and wherein graphical representations associated with a plurality of individuals are presented in the area assigned to a single day. In this way, the utilization of the space available in the graphical user interface of a portable device is enhanced. In particular, given that an overview of a plurality of days is displayed in the graphical user interface, such as e.g. in a view including today's date and the next day or in a week view or in a month mode, the presentation of a plurality of individuals' entries in the area assigned to a single day allows the user to easily identify which individuals in the group or subgroup has assignments on that day. The graphical representations associated with the individuals may advantageously make use of the above- mentioned shared distinct graphical characteristics to further enhance usability. Preferably, in order to save space in the area of the graphical user interface, the graphical representations associated with the plurality of individuals may be presented as abbreviated calendar entries or even merely by a graphical symbol indicating that a calendar entry exists, but without providing details of the entry. Such details may be made available to the user upon a predefined user action, switching to an alternative view mode, or intermittently opening a graphical window displaying the otherwise not visible calendar entry information.

In one embodiment of the invention, the graphical user interface assigned to a day may define a single area in the graphical user interface, whereby borders of each area in the graphical user interface defines a centre, and wherein the position of graphical

representations associated with calendar entries of a specific individual has the same position relative to the centre for all days. This further enhances user convenience and allows users to easily and swiftly identify relevant information in the graphical user interface. For example, graphical representations of a first person may always be provided above the centre, whereas graphical representations of a second person may always be provided below the centre. For multiple-user groups, the representations may be provided in a clockwise fashion, whereby users may be allocated the positions at 12 o'clock, 1 o'clock, etc. relative to the centre.

Preferably, the position of graphical representations associated with calendar entries associated with a specific individual is independent of graphical representations associated with calendar entries associated with other individuals. Accordingly, a user looking for information associated with a particular individual knows exactly where to look in the graphical user interface.

Calendar entries may be divided into a plurality of categories, in which case the system may be configured such that creation of a calendar entry in at least one of the categories causes the portable electronic device and/or server computer system to suggest creation of a complementary calendar entry, wherein a finite time period exists between the time end points of the calendar entry and the time end points of the complementary calendar entry. For example, upon input of calendar entry "Drive to meeting" or "Football" may automatically cause the system to suggest or create a complementary calendar entry "Leave home" half an hour in advance of the entered task. The user is thereby alleviated of potentially time- consuming tasks, and the risk of complementary calendar entries being unintentionally forgotten is reduced.

In one embodiment, the creation of a calendar entry associated with a first individual on a first one of the at least two portable electronic devices may cause the server computer system to suggest creation of a complementary calendar entry associated with a second individual on a second one of the at least two portable electronic devices. Accordingly, the architecture of the present invention allows one individual's entry of a task to automatically propose a task in another individual's calendar. For example, in a group consisting of a family, a child's entry of a calendar entry "Football" may automatically result in that the server computer system proposes to one of the adults in the group a complementary calendar entry "Drive child to the football club" some time in advance of commencement of the child's "Football" entry. Likewise, a complementary calendar entry "Pick up child from the football club" may be entered or proposed to an adult at the end of the child's "Football" entry.

Complementary calendar entries may be entered automatically by the server system in accordance with predefined rules, or they may be suggested via the individuals' respective graphical user interfaces, but only entered upon entry of the concerned individual's accept.

In one embodiment of the invention, the calendar system is further integrated with a food planning and grocery shopping planning procedure. Thus, for server computer system and/or software running at each portable device may on, e.g., a daily or weekly basis propose one or more dining menus to all or selected individuals of a group and auto generate a grocery shopping list for the proposed or user-selected menu. The grocery shopping list may be shared among members of each group or each subgroup in order to facilitate, e.g., a family's grocery logistics.

In general, the server computer system may configured such that the time end points of the complementary calendar entry associated with the second individual are defined at least in part on the basis of the time end points of the calendar entry associated with the first individual.

In order to clearly visualize new calendar entries of other group members in the graphical user interface of the portable devices, the server computer system may be configured to instruct each of the at least two portable electronic devices to display a notification of calendar entries that have been created since the time when each of the at least two portable electronic devices last displayed graphical representations of the calendar entry data. Thus, an individual who has not opened the calendar application at his portable device for some time, may be immediately notified of his/her own or other group members' new calendar entries upon reopening or reactivation of the calendar application.

In order to reduce CPU capacity load at the server computer system, the at least two portable electronic devices may be configured to receive and store all calendar entry data and calendar meta data associated with individuals of the group. Thus, CPU capacity load may be reduced by causing the server computer system to forward the entire database of calendar entries and metadata of a particular group to all members of the group upon change of any entry or metadata or any of the users in the group. Thus, even though more data are thereby transmitted as compared to the amount of data to be transferred if only updated, added or deleted entries or meta data were to be transferred, it has been found that the benefit of reducing CPU capacity load at the server computer system outweighs the desire to minimize data traffic. In particular, given that calendar data are typically limited to a few hundred kilobytes even in respect of large groups of individuals, say company departments, the data traffic load is correspondingly limited, whereas substantive CPU capacity at the server computer system would be required in order to continuously keep track of updates to calendar entries. Preferably, software running at each of the portable electronic devices is configured to identify the device and the associated individual to software running at the server computer system upon activation or reactivation of the calendar application at the portable electronic device. Upon such identification, software running at the server computer system may automatically and immediately transmit the entire database of the group, to which the individual belongs, to the portable electronic device, whereby it is ensured that the user immediately gains access to the most updated data in the database at the server computer system.

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE DRAWINGS It should be understood that the detailed description and specific example, while indicating an embodiment, are given by way of illustration only, since various changes and

modifications within the spirit and scope of the invention will become apparent to those skilled in the art from this detailed description.

Fig. 1 illustrates a shared digital calendar system 100 for wireless or wired data

communication 102 between a plurality of portable electronic devices 104 comprising graphical user interfaces 106 and a server computer system 108. In the embodiment illustrated, the group of individuals, the calendar entry data and calendar meta data are defined by the server computer system 108. Individuals access the calendar through portable electronic devices 104. The portable electronic devices 104 are configured to receive the calendar entry data and calendar meta data. By way of the calendar meta data, the portable electronic devises 104 are able to associate the calendar entry data with specific individuals of the group. For entry of new calendar entries, each portable device 104 may in particular be configured to receive calendar entry data and calendar meta data by user input through a user interface, such as a graphical user interface 106 of each device 104. Each device 104 may further comprise a communications interface for passing such data received by user input onto the server computer system. The communications interface is further preferably configured to receive previously stored calendar entry data and calendar meta data from the server computer system. The communications interface is further configured to receive calendar entry data and calendar meta data entered by devices 104 of other users and transmitted from the portable electronic devices 104 of such users to the server computer system .

In this way, all calendar entry data and calendar meta data for individuals of the group are stored in a central location and it is possible to define a single common calendar that is accessible to a group of individuals by use of their portable electronic devices 104.

Figs. 2 and 3 illustrate flow charts for the system according to embodiments of the invention. In the flow chart in Fig. 2, after initiation 110 by the portable electronic device 104, in a connection step 112 the portable device 104 connects to the server computer system 108. The device 104 then determines 113 whether the calendar data of the group on the device

104 matches the calendar data of the group on the server system 108. If not 114, the server 108 pushes 115 all of the group's calendar data to the device 104 which stores all the received data in a memory of the device 104. If yes 116, no calendar data is pushed to the device 104. The device 104 then 118 associates the calendar entry data with the individuals of the group by use of the calendar meta data. Finally 120, the device 104 displays graphical representation of the calendar entries in a manner according to embodiments of the invention.

In the embodiment in Fig. 3, the device 104 performs an additional check if it is determined that the group's calendar data on the device 104 does not match that on the server 108. More specifically, the device 104 then determines 122 if the newest calendar data is on the server 108. If not 124, the device 104 sends 126 all the new calendar data to the server 108. After this, the server 108 pushes 115 all calendar data from the server 108 to the device 104 and/or to all devices within a group of individuals sharing the same calendar data, such as, e.g. a family or a company department. If yes 128, the server 108 pushes 115 all calendar data from the server 108 to the device 104. As in Fig. 2, the device 104 then goes on to associating 118 the calendar entry data to individuals and displaying 120 the calendar entry data of the individuals.

Figs. 4 and 5 illustrate the content of the graphical user interface 106 of a portable electronic device 104 displaying graphical representations 130 of calendar entry data associated with specific individuals of a group at dedicated parts of the graphical user interface 106 according to embodiments of the invention.

In the embodiment illustrated in Fig. 4, the portable device 104 displays the graphical representations 130 according to a view mode wherein an overview of the days in a month are presented along with a view of days in the week of the selected day. The present day is marked by a square 132. Graphical representations 130 of entries associated with more than one individual are presented within the area dedicated to a single day for all days of the presented month on which more than one individual has at least one calendar entry. Also, for all days of the presented month, the graphical representations 130 associated with a specific one of the individuals share the same distinct graphical symbol for swift identification of the association of entries. Furthermore, as seen in Fig. 4 the borders 134 of each area associated with one of the days of the presented month defines a centre 136, and the position of graphical representations 130 associated with calendar entries of specific individuals have the same position relative to the centre for all days. This further eases the process of identifying the association of the entries with the individuals of the group by visual inspection.

Additionally, the position of graphical representations 130 associated with calendar entries associated with specific individuals are independent of graphical representations 130 associated with calendar entries associated with other individuals of the group.

In the embodiment illustrated in Fig. 5, the portable device 104 displays the graphical representations 130 according to a view mode wherein an overview of the days in a week is provided. In this case, three respective columns 138 are dedicated to three respective individuals of the group while one column 140 is dedicated to an overview of entries shared by all individuals of the group. The car symbols 142 indicate transport calendar entries concerning that one of the individuals of the group is transporting another individual of the group to or from the particular event. The transport calendar entries are suggested to both parents when the calendar entry that the child needs to be transported to and from is created. Only one parent is required to accept each transport calendar entry.
