Protected Smart Holds



Time and time again, you get invited to meetings that fall smack in the middle of the only block you have to get in the zone. 

Your Focus Time isn’t free time. But does your calendar know that? Do your colleagues respect that? If your Focus Time or lunch break is consistently ignored, it defeats the purpose of blocking it on your calendar in the first place. 

With auto-decline, Clockwise protects your Focus Time to ensure you actually have the chance to, well, focus.

Protect individual smart holds

  1. Select the Smart Hold (Focus Time, lunch, or meeting relief break) that you wish to protect.
  2. In your Clockwise Sidebar, choose "Do not move it and also decline incoming meetings"

Clockwise will then automatically decline any invites during the protected time. Additionally, you'll see a shield emoji appear in the event title, indicating that the hold is protected. 


If a hold is necessary but the time of day is flexible, consider making a Flexible Hold instead.
