A survey of personal and household scheduling
We describe results from a survey of employees at Microsoft about how they manage personal and household scheduling. We saw a much greater use of digital calendars than we expected. Of our 621 respondents, 51% (317) used their digital calendar at work as the calendar where most of their personal and household events were recorded, while 38% (233) of respondents primarily used paper calendars. We discuss reasons respondents gave for choosing a particular type of calendar as well as challenges faced by respondents in scheduling events for themselves and their households. Categories and Subject Descriptors H.5.3 Group and Organization Interfaces General Terms Human Factors. Keywords Digital calendar, groupware calendar systems, family, home
