Yes, you can do this by creating an event with the desired duration in your Google calendar, and categorizing it as Focus Time in Clockwise.

Or, you can use Google's Focus Time event type, which allows you to decline any existing events.

Note: Using this method will alter your Clockwise Focus Time analytics, as focus time added by your organization's calendaring system classifies as a hold in Clockwise.

 

Either way you add Focus Time manually, the event becomes sticky and will not move or remove itself as other changes to your schedule occur.

 

Microsoft Accounts

Booking via your Outlook calendar view will allow you to create a Focus Time hold. Clockwise will acknowledge this as a hold to disallow booking because the event will be attended only by 1 invitee – yourself.
