Below you will find some common questions about managing your out of office in Clockwise.
How does Clockwise know I'm out of office?
Clockwise uses the names of the meetings on your calendar to identify when you are out of office. We identify words and phrases in the title of your meetings (for example, "OOO" or "Out of Office") and then automatically categorize the meeting as an out of office event.
How do I edit the out of office setting?
OOO in Clockwise is based on the meetings on your calendar, and the category those meetings fall into. So to tell Clockwise you are going to be OOO, all you have to do is edit the category of the event on your calendar. You can find the category dropdown in the extension (below) or in the pop-up window after clicking on a meeting in your calendar.
