AI for your calendar

Still working around fixed, inflexible events in Google Calendar? While they're great for basic calendar scheduling, Google Calendar is not designed to react to the chaos of a normal workday.

But Reclaim's AI scheduling automatically plans out the perfect day for you. It flexibly schedules time for all the things you need to get done: tasks, routines, meetings, even breaks, around your existing Google Calendar events. No more manual time blocking that jams up your workweek.

Priority levels for events

When plans change, your calendar should too. Unlike Google Calendar’s fixed events that end up getting double (or triple) booked, Reclaim auto-reschedules your smart events when a conflict comes up or something urgent drops in.

At Reclaim, every event automatically has a priority level – even your regular calendar events. And if you need to set up an urgent meeting through a Scheduling Link, you can bring down the priority level over Google Calendar events or Reclaim events you'd be willing to auto-schedule to another time. Your day is always prioritized around your most important work and stay flexible to maximize your productivity.

Way better calendar sync

Here's a shocking secret few Google Calendar users really know – when you share your Google Calendar with another one, no one can actually see when you're busy with a synced event. That's right, only you can see those events.

But at Reclaim, you can sync your actual availability across an unlimited number of Google Calendars so you're never double-booked again. And the best part – you can control how those synced events display to your coworkers. Reclaim offers anonymous 'Busy' blocks, full event details, or to sync your events as 'Personal Commitments' so your team knows you're busy with something important, without oversharing personal details they don't need to know.

More than 300,000 people across 40,000 companies are active with Reclaim
