Time Defense for Habits controls how aggressively Reclaim will flip your Habits from free to busy based on your availability, preferences, and priorities.
Time Defense for Habits
Habits are initially added as 'Free' 🆓 to your schedule to keep your calendar flexible. As time comes closer to the Habit's start time, or as your day starts to fill up, Reclaim will mark the event as 'Busy' 🛡️ so it gets defended from being overbooked by other events.
Each Habit has its own Time Defense setting so you can customize exactly when you want a Habit to switch from Free to Busy.
Reclaim considers two variables when it comes to Time Defense:
The amount of time left for the Habit in the Habit's time window
The amount of time left before the Habit is scheduled to begin
Each of Reclaim's Time Defense options adjust to these variables differently:
Always free 🆓 and prefer ideal time over max duration.
Let Reclaim decide (default)
Let Reclaim intelligently choose Free 🆓 or Busy🛡️, duration, and time based on Habit's priority and your overall calendar.
Always busy 🛡️ and prefer the max duration over the ideal time.
