calendar

A program that enables you to record events and appointments on an electronic calendar. Computer calendars act like datebooks, but they have several advantages over traditional datebooks:
  • automatic entries for regular events: You can specify, for example, that the first Thursday of every month is bridge night, and the calendar program will automatically fill in the appropriate days.
  • signaling of upcoming events: Most calendars will let you know that an event is approaching by issuing beeps.
  • clean deletion: With an electronic calendar, you can erase an appointment without leaving a trace.
  • Calendar software is part of a more general category of software known as PIMs (personal information managers). A special type of calendar, called a scheduler, enables groups of users connected to a network to coordinate their schedules.
