The association of personal time management research with calendar applications has remained a relatively under-researched area due to the complexity and challenges it faces. covers the latest concepts, methodologies, techniques, tools, and perspectives essential to understanding individual time management experiences.

Emphasizing personal temporal structure usage involving calendar tools, this book provides both qualitative and quantitative evidences and insights valuable for researchers and practitioners in enhancing current electronic calendar systems design and implementation.
