Title: ADD A NEW INSTANCE TO A SERIES
Abstract:
Adding an instance to a series in a fashion that preserves the series for both modern and legacy systems, even when the addition would not ordinarily be compatible with the legacy system. A method includes identifying a master message. The master message includes default values for events in the series. The method further includes identifying user input for a new event in the series. The user input identifies exceptions to the default values. The method further includes creating an instance message that includes default values from the master message for which there are no exceptions identified in the user input and includes the exceptions from the user input.
