Schedule Focus Time Using Google Calendar

by Mar 28, 2022

It’s 9:30 am and you settled down to your desk with your computer, your favorite morning pick-me-up, and a major project that is due today by the close of business.

  • Notifications are popping up on your phone
  • Notifications are popping up on your computer screen
  • New video notifications appear on your computer screen
  • Meeting requests are rolling in

You’ll never get your work done at that rate!

Focus Time* on Google Calendar can help you control some of those distractions!

Let’s set up Focus Time*:

  1. Open Google Calendar using your web browser.
  2. Click Create
  1. Select Focus Time
  2. Type a Title (Example: Complete Weekly Marketing Strategy or Focus Time)
  3. Select the date and time range. You can even select reoccurring focus times.
  4. Check the box to Automatically decline meetings
  5. Add a location, if desired
  6. Add description, if desired
