Primary teams vs secondary teams

We understand that you can be a part of multiple teams at work. Clockwise for Teams differentiates between these groups by denoting your primary team and your secondary teams. There can only be one primary team, all other teams that you're a part of will be regarded as secondary. Primary and secondary teams have different capabilities:

Primary team

  • You can only have one primary team
  • You will receive updates on teammates that are out of the office in your Clockwise feed, your week in review email, and Slack
  • You will receive updates on teammates that are low on Focus Time in your Clockwise feed and your week in review
  • You can access Team Analytics on Focus Time, meeting time, and fragmented time for your teammates
  • You can subscribe to the team availability calendar that automatically syncs your teammates' OOO and WFH events
  • Your team's No Meeting Day will be respected and reflected in your calendar

Secondary teams

  • You can have up to 4 secondary teams
  • You can access Team Analytics on Focus Time, meeting time, and fragmented time for your teammates
  • You can subscribe to the team availability calendar that automatically syncs your teammates' OOO and WFH events
