Life scheduling to support multiple social roles

By Andrea Grimes and A. J. Brush

Abstract

We present the results of our study of 15 working parents, and how they manage their life scheduling needs, that is, how they manage their personal and professional schedules across settings and calendaring tools. In particular, we discuss how their dual roles of parent and employee compel them to record personal information on their professional calendars and we detail the tensions that arise in doing so. Finally, we present suggestions for future calendaring applications that better support working parents in managing their life scheduling needs. Author Keywords Calendars, groupware, social roles. ACM Classification Keywords H.5.3. Information interfaces and presentation (e.g., HCI): Group and organization interfaces
