  • Patent number: 6034683
    Abstract: An interface for scheduling temporal events is provided in the form of a time line associated with a desktop metaphor. The interface comprises a clock representation in any of several formats that is associated with a display, where the clock has a first display configuration that is integrated into an electronic desktop in a seamless and consistent fashion, and that represents a most minimized state of the scheduling interface. The clock also has one or more additional display configurations that represent expanded states to provide a time line representation of such items scheduled events, related documentation, participant identity, and resource management tools.
