AI-driven priority scheduling

Clockwise is really good at putting generic time blocks on the calendar. But the problem is, everyone on your team quickly starts ignoring them because it's unclear if this time is really being used for anything important.

Reclaim's AI helps you flexibly make time for the real work you need to get done. With hundreds of templates available, you can map out your recurring routines as well as your Task work so it's defended by priority on the calendar. And with Reclaim's advanced priority settings, you and your team can stay focused on your most important meetings and work without distraction.

More project management integrations

Since Clockwise focuses more on generic Focus Time blocks, they haven't invested much development into project and task management (outside of Asana).

But Reclaim integrates with all popular project management apps, including Asana, ClickUp, Jira, Todoist, Linear, and even Google Tasks. It allows your entire team to automatically block time for tasks right to their calendar (and managers to assign and prioritize work across the team) so you can improve capacity planning and actually work towards achievable goals you can reach.

Real AI meetings

While Clockwise can help move around the meetings you mark as flexible, users have also found this very limiting. It only works for internal meetings, and will only move them around once a day.

Reclaim's Smart Meetings uses AI to automatically find the best time for all attendees (both internal and external) around their real-time availability. And Reclaim offers way more advanced meeting controls like min/max durations, priority-driven scheduling, and dependencies so you can automate your meeting schedule exactly how you want it.

More than 300,000 people across 40,000 companies are active with Reclaim
“After having used Cron for a long while and Clockwise and a ton of other tools I feel like I've arrived at Reclaim. So big congrats to that achievement to serve my weird calendar behavior & needs. Love you folks!”
