Get more value out of Google Calendar when you add Reclaim
Instead of filling your calendar with events that quickly get interrupted, Reclaim adapts to changes in your agenda and shifts events from Free to Busy as you get busier: so you stay flexible, but not too flexible.
You can groom your backlog as much as you like, but if it’s not on the calendar, it ain’t happening. Create your task list in Reclaim, or integrate your task or project management app, and defend focus time for your to-dos on the calendar.
Reclaim intelligently blocks time on your calendar for the things you want to do regularly. Want to make time for lunch every day, a walk on Friday afternoons, email catch up in the morning, or exercise 3x a week? Easy.
Automatically find the best time for your one-on-one meetings every week. Reclaim will analyze both calendars to find mutual free time, and automatically reschedule your Smart 1:1s if a conflict comes up.
Ever end up getting overbooked because you forgot to block time for an event from another calendar? Reclaim keeps all your calendars in sync, so you'll never have to worry about juggling calendars again.
When people view your calendar, "busy" doesn't always give them the context they need. Reclaim gives just the right amount of info to would-be schedulers so that you can stay focused without sacrificing privacy.
Stuck in back-to-back calls all day? Give yourself time to decompress and travel between meetings. Reclaim automatically blocks smart buffers for you to prep and get where you’re going.
Reclaim automatically color-codes your entire calendar by intelligently detecting different event types on your agenda, making it super easy to see how your time is divided at a glance.
It's hard to know if you're on track when you don't have data. Reclaim offers simple weekly stats to show you how your time is divided across different kinds of categories: meetings, solo work, personal time, and more!
Your calendar data stays encrypted at rest and in transit, and you can delete your account (and your data) at any time by just clicking a button. We'll never share or sell your data, cause that's just not cool.
Reclaim works with your existing calendar and automates away the toil of managing your schedule manually so that you can focus on the things you do best. We believe that calendars aren’t necessarily broken, they just don’t work well for people who need power tools for their time — like you!
If you've tried time blocking before, you know how hard it can be to keep up with when your schedule is changing all the time. It's not adaptive, which means that inbound conflicts or last-minute changes create even more toil in managing your calendar.
Furthermore, if you're a busy person, you know that blocking out your entire calendar with the word "busy" doesn't necessarily mean you don't get interrupted: in fact, it creates even more work for you, because now you have to deal with people sending you Slack messages asking if you really need that time block, or if they can overbook it.
Reclaim does two things very differently:
First, we enable you to create intentional time blocks for specific routines and tasks, and prioritize them to adapt to your workweek. This lets you make tradeoffs around your time, and it better communicates context to your coworkers without them having to bother you to see if your "Focus Time" block is "real".
Second, we automatically flex time blocks based on your availability: if you've got plenty of free time for your routines and to-dos in the week, we leave that space open for collaboration. But if your schedule is jammed, we'll lock things down to give you the time you need. It's like a circuit breaker, but for your time.
We believe in time blocking that is realistic, and that actually conforms to the world we live in. We think you'll love it.
We get it! Reclaim only adds blocks to your calendar, it doesn’t reschedule or modify any existing meetings (unless you set up smart one-on-one meetings using Reclaim, which you totally should).
We won’t decline stuff or make changes to any existing events that weren’t created by us. We’ve heard too many horror stories about “intelligent calendar assistants” that end up embarrassing you by moving or declining a meeting with your boss, and we don’t have any code that does anything close to that.
Furthermore, all the blocks and changes we make to your calendar are fully reversible. If you turn on a feature and then decide you don’t want the time blocks on your calendar anymore, simply turn it off and we’ll remove all of them from your calendar automatically.
Reclaim takes your security and privacy extremely seriously. Learn more about how we protect your data
We take your privacy and calendar data security seriously. We know how sensitive this stuff is. Thousands of users across hundreds of companies trust us with their data, and here’s why.
We will never share or sell any of your calendar data to third parties. That's just not our bag, and we think it's creepy.
All of your data is encrypted at rest and in transit, and we'll never access your calendar data without your explicit permission. Reclaim doesn't need to store calendar data for any calendars you sync (e.g., if you sync your personal or side gig calendar to Reclaim) but it does need to store data for the primary calendar that you use to sign up for Reclaim — it's just the only way Reclaim can reliably do its job.
Finally, we believe strongly in JIT permissions: that is, we only ask for your permissions as we need them throughout the onboarding process. If you don’t want a feature that needs a certain permission, we won’t ask for it until you turn it on.
Today, Reclaim is designed for Google Calendar. We’ll support Outlook 365 and other services soon!
Reclaim is designed for anyone with a crazy calendar. If you're the kind of person whose schedule is almost always half-full of meetings, you're going to love Reclaim. Managers and senior ICs across all sorts of roles and departments use Reclaim every day to get time back for what matters.
Yep! Reclaim integrates with a variety of task management platforms (with more on the way) to help your teams automatically schedule their work and capacity plan. We also have a pretty nifty feature called Smart 1:1s that schedules your one-on-one meetings intelligently, both for people inside and outside of your organization.
You sure can. We believe that you shouldn’t have to contact a support person or argue with us to get your account deleted. It's just not how software should work in the 21st century.
If you decide you no longer want to use Reclaim, there’s a delete button in the UI. We’ll delete all your data from our database instantly. You’ll probably also get an email from us asking why you deleted your account, but that’s for us to understand how we could make your experience better.
