This disclosure describes techniques to notify individuals that are likely to have been present at a particular location, e.g., a meeting room, based on calendar information, obtained with user permission. For example, a corporate campus can include several meeting rooms with associated calendars that are used for meetings. A person that finds a forgotten item in a meeting room can access a portal to report the item, along with the location and time that the item was found, e.g., via a portal. The portal can then access, with user permission, calendar information of the meeting room and/or other individuals to identify those that may have forgotten the item. A notification that the item was found is provided to such individuals via the portal. The portal thus acts an intermediary between the item owner and the person who found the item. Other types of location and time-based notifications can also be provided.
