According to the level of privacy required, an individual may maintain three types of diary; a wall/calendar chart open to viewing by anyone, a desk-kept diary accessed by a selected group of individuals and the pocket diary accessed solely by the user. All three types may be used in an office environment. A diary facility represents a typical function that could be made available on a communications system. The availability of a diary facility in an electronic office environment is examined in terms of the social factors to be considered, the syntax required for its introduction and the system details needed for support. © 1983.
