Reclaim blocks time on your work calendar for events from your personal calendar, and treats certain kinds of events a little differently in order to make your experience as great as possible.

  • All-day events: Reclaim does not block time for all-day events from your personal calendar. This helps to avoid blocking time for things like Birthdays or Holidays.
  • Events from Gmail: LifeWork will automatically block time for events created by Gmail (e.g., reservations, appointments, etc.) and mark the time as Busy on your work calendar.¬†
  • Events that your work email is invited to: if your work email is already invited to a personal event, we will skip blocking it out to avoid duplication.
  • #nosync events: as noted in this article, any events that have the #nosync ¬†hashtag added to their description field will never be blocked on your work calendar.
  • Events that you've created, but where you aren't in the attendee list: In rare cases (typically via using scheduling platforms like Calendly) it's possible to be the organizer of an event but still not be listed as an attendee. In these cases, Reclaim will sync the event but will assume that you are Busy instead of keeping the event Free.
  • Events created by Reclaim: events created by Reclaim on your personal calendar will never sync to your work calendar.
  • Events you've declined: as noted in this article, if you RSVP "No" to an event on your personal calendar, the block from your work calendar will be removed

All other personal events will be blocked out normally on your work calendar according to your Settings.
