See your week at a glance with automatic color-coding from Clockwise.  

Set Up

Enable automatic color-coding right from your Clockwise feed in onboarding, or from Settings.  Use the Clockwise default colors, or configure the colors you prefer from settings.

To disable color-coding, toggle it off from the "Features and integrations" section in Settings.

How Clockwise Categorizes Meetings

Clockwise uses machine learning models to automatically categorizes your meetings.  We look at factors such as historical attendance rate, meeting size, duration, and location to make the categorization.  

  • External: A calendar event with an external attendee invited to the event.  We will also attempt to recognize external meetings without an external attendee invited.
  • One on One: A meeting between you and one other internal attendee.
  • Team Sync: A recurring meeting between you and multiple other internal teammates.
  • Hold: A calendar event with no other attendees, that is not a real meeting (ex: travel time, hold for a meeting)
  • Focus Time: Blocks of free time within your working hours longer than 2 hours.  Holds for Focus Time should also be included here (eg: No Meeting Wednesday, WFH)
  • Ad-Hoc: Internal, non-recurring meetings 
  • Other events: All other events not captured by the above.

Changing Default Categories

Clockwise automatically buckets events into the above categories.  You can customize an event's category at any time by clicking on that event and editing the dropdown menu under the event title.

How does Clockwise color-coding work with my existing calendar colors?

Clockwise will override any existing event colors that you created through Google.  However, Clockwise will only change an event's color if that event is in a category that has a color assigned to it.  For example, if you manually color an event that is in the Ad-Hoc category blue, that event will stay blue if you do not assign a color to Ad-Hoc events.

If you remove the color-coding, all the colors will be reset to the calendar default.  The calendar will not revert to the previous manual color-coding.
