Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9922324A1] The present invention includes a mobile device (3) which provides the user with the ability to schedule a meeting request from the mobile device (3) itself. The mobile device (3) creates an object representative of the meeting request and assigns the object a global identification number which uniquely identifies the object to other devices (4, 10, 13) which encounter the object. In addition, the mobile device (3) in accordance with one aspect of the present invention provides a property in the object which is indicative of whether the meeting request has already been transmitted. In this way, other devices (4, 10, 13) which encounter the meeting request are capable of identifying it as a unique meeting request, and of determining whether the meeting request has already been transmitted, in order to alleviate the problem of duplicate meeting request transmissions.
