Title: EFFICIENCY ENHANCEMENTS IN TASK MANAGEMENT APPLICATIONS
Abstract:
Efficiency improvements for electronic task managers and an improved user experience are realized when more relevant and fewer irrelevant tasks are presented to users and users are given greater control in manipulating those task items. By heuristically determining times, locations, and semantics associated with task relevance and integrating the management of tasks into more applications, the functionality of the systems providing for electronic task management is improved, as computer resources are spent with greater utility to the users and the user experience is improved for the users.
