Everything you should know to set up your account

For better results, we highly recommend adjusting some settings before you start working with Focuster. Go to the Settings menu and check out:

  1. Work Hours. Select your time zone and set up your working hours. Note, that you can change the working hours for a particular day using the Activity Bar. 

  2. Action Duration. By default it’s 1h. It means that when you add a new action and don’t choose its duration, Focuster will automatically assign a 1h. You can always change it manually in your Todo list or Today list.  But if you know that your tasks usually are shorter than that - simply change the duration in Settings.

  3. Scheduling. You can choose if you’d like your actions to be scheduled on the weekends or not. If you prefer a step by step planning, uncheck the “Schedule all actions” checkbox and Focuster will schedule only 3 next actions for you.

  4. Notifications. Focuster provides 3 types of notifications: 

  • Reminders: set up the frequency for Focuster’s intelligent reminders that will appear in the right corner of your screen until you complete your top priority. 

  • Push notifications: enable this feature to get reminders even when Focuster tab is not open. *Available for Chrome users only

  • Emails: receive daily emails to understand your performance better and develop a planning habit.
