Working hours & meeting hours
During on-boarding, Clockwise asks for your Working Hours and Meeting Hours.
Why do we need both? We use your Working Hours to calculate how much Focus Time you have. For example, if your working hours are 8 to 6 every day, but your meeting hours are 9 to 5, scheduling a meeting at 9am could be interrupting a block of Focus Time.
Your meeting hours are also very important. Clockwise scheduling suggestions and Autopilot meeting moves are always within your meeting hours.
Set your Focus Time weekly goals
Setting up your weekly Focus Time goals will allow you to protect the right amount of Focus Time per week while maintaining a sense of availability on your calendar. This may me useful for managers who want to keep their schedules relatively open so their reports can schedule ad hoc meetings or this is also ideal for people who schedule a lot of external meetings.
Set your weekly Focus Time goals in Settings>Focus Time, lunch, and travel time>Check the option "Schedule x hours Focus Time per week". Use the drop down menu to choose exactly how many hours you'd like to protect.
If you don't need Focus Time goals per week and you'd like to protect as much time as possible, select "Schedule all my available Focus Time". This option will allow Clockwise to protect every slot of 2 hours or more uninterrupted time in your calendar as Focus Time.
Define your team
Clockwise asks you tell us who is on your team so we know whose Focus Time you care about. If you are a people manager, your team could be your direct reports. If you are a product manager, your team could be the engineers or designers you collaborate with. If you are an individual contributor, your team could be the cross-functional stakeholders you work with most frequently.
Clockwise uses the information about who is on your team in your Team Analytics dashboard, as well as to generate our smart suggestions.
