A method and system for scheduling electronic calendar events. An electronic calendar receives event information for a first calendar event including specified attendee(s), a priority level, an event time, and a time interval within which the event is to be scheduled. Responsive to detecting a scheduling conflict between the first calendar event and another calendar event, a reschedule procedure begins by determining whether the scheduling conflict can be resolved by modifying the specified event time to an another time within the specified time interval. Responsive to determining that the scheduling conflict cannot be resolved by changing the specified event time to another time within the specified time interval, the specified event priority level of the first calendar event is compared with event priority level of the conflicting calendar event to determine scheduling prioritization between the first calendar event and the conflicting calendar event.
