Save time for lunch every day by automatically syncing a lunch hold to your calendar with Clockwise's Lunch Smart Holds.  

How it Works

When you enable the Lunch Smart Hold, Clockwise will automatically create a calendar event that corresponds to your lunch preferences.  These dynamic calendar events are updated in real time as your calendar changes, so you can always have an up-to-date view of the time you have available for lunch. 

Set up & Configuration

To enable your Lunch Smart Hold, go to the Smart Holds section of Settings, and select "On your primary work calendar" to make sure the events sync to your calendar.

To ensure the events appear when you intend to eat lunch, make sure that your lunch settings are up to date.  Go to Settings, and select "Hours & Availability" then customize your preferences.
