Set up Lunchtimes

  1. Visit Your ideal day
  2. Scroll down to How about having time for lunch every day? and click the toggle.



  1. Configure your preferences for when you want to take lunch, and the minimum and maximum durations. If you're not able to choose your preferred end time, try first adjusting the start time to be earlier/later.

Protect your Lunch: Auto-Decline Meetings 

If there comes a time when you need your lunch time to be firm, you can defend this time so it will not change, and can automatically decline meetings scheduled with you during your lunch time.

  1. Open the Clockwise Planner view and select the lunch event you would like to defend.
  2. On the right-hand sidebar, select the last option, Do not move it and also decline incoming meetings.



Manually Update Lunch Holds

Clockwise gives you the flexibility to manually update your lunch holds. To do so, simply drag the lunch hold to your desired future time on your calendar or adjust the scheduled duration.

Clockwise will then confirm, when you click on the event, that you have successfully updated your lunch hold to your desired time.


Note: Once the lunch hold is manually edited, Clockwise will no longer make dynamic updates to the event.
