Meeting Agenda Planner
Posted on 2002-04-29
I am trying to find an application program, preferably running on Windows, which allows you to plan the details of a meeting agenda. I am not talking about the usual Outlook calendar type thing, although it would be nice if such a tool worked with Outlook.
The kind of thing I am talking about is more like a constraint solver, customized for meetings: I have to schedule n speakers in a meeting no longer than 2 days, with suitable breaks and meals; what if I give each speaker 45 minutes? What if I want to cluster certain speakers together in the agenda? What if I find out that the meeting room becomes unavailable after 5:00 PM and my current agenda runs through 6:00 PM, and I want the program to adjust the times without moving the breaks. All that kind of miserable stuff...
Does anyone know of a program that addresses these issues? If not, I think I just got a product idea ;-)
