The Slack integration is great

Pros:

Set up once and forget. It just works in the background

Cons:

Could be a little more intuitive but couldn't everything

software engineer, coursera

i recommend clockwise to almost every one i meet, regardless of whether or not i work with them

Pros:

simple and sleek integration with your calendar is like having a digital assistant for you and your entire team

Cons:

there are a few things i'd like to customize, but that's all positive, too!

I recommend clockwise to every engineering and product team I work with.

Pros:

Easy, efficient and lovely to look at.

Cons:

I wish there were versions for different sub-groups of teams (marketing, sales, eng, etc).

After each week you can see a little summary of what meetings were moved and how focus time was consolidated. Satisfying to see!

Pros:

improves my daily schedule without me doing anything.

Cons:

Hmm, would like it if my entire org was required to use clockwise for further optimization.

Super sweet app. The world needs more focus time.

Pros:

* Seamless integrations * Sweet on-boarding flow * Highly customizable; Choose aggressive or gentle nudges towards increased focus time

Cons:

Mobile app!

I know what the end user needs

If it's limited to being a chrome extension connected with Gmail, then it's limiting it's market - and doesn't appeal to me specifically. Additionally, it doesn't appear to take into account that maybe the other people you're meeting aren't going to accept your proposed changes. If you've worked in large organisations with many attendees finding time to get everyone together is already a challenge - when one person attempts to change a meeting time, then get ready to rumble.

Pros:

Anything that can help streamline calendar time is great!

Cons:

limited to being a chrome extension connected with Gmail. What happens when other attendees don't accept your proposed changes.

Hi Gavin! Thanks for the review! We plan to expand beyond chrome & Gmail, so hopefully will have something that appeals to you in the future! Clockwise actually would only move a meeting to a time that works for every attendee (whether or not they are a Clockwise user) – so if there's a less disruptive time for those larger meetings that works for everyone, Clockwise will find it!

Not much more to tell. It does what it days on the tin -- which is very rare.

Pros:

Clockwise provides little nudges to clean up my calendar and it looks for opportunities to create focus time for me and my team. I love it.

Cons:

I would love an extension to room booking (we really don't have enough meeting rooms).

I wrote a bunch in discussion notes ^_^

Pros:

Like a personal assistant who's focused on increasing you and your teammates' focus time.

Cons:

Tiny thing: when rescheduling meetings, help me find available rooms!

Works better if more of your team adopt it. Without much trust and adoption from your team it doesn't get to make as much of a difference for you.

Pros:

It's super lightweight, takes minimal setup but can make a real difference to your workweek, something which is a super rare find.

Cons:

Doesn't work with the GetBoxy wrapper for GCal

I've not used it for teams, but I did appreciate blocks of focus time!

Pros:

Slack integration so my statuses are accurate to what i'm doing

Cons:

sometimes the auto-generated calendar items were not useful/inaccurate

I don't think it needs to see all my contacts​

Pros:

Nice idea

Cons:

Clockwise has to View users on your domain See and download your contacts

Very good tool and saved me loads of time. Helpful for those that need a little help managing their calendar.

Pros:

Very easy to use

Cons:

Sometimes clunky (adding people to clockwise e.g.)

When is O365 integration coming?
