A manager's day is split into tiny slots, each with a specific purpose, whereas a builder’s schedule consists of long blocks of time reserved for deep focus. Aerotime now understands this and your working habits – recommending you meeting slots that optimize your team's efficiency.

No more juggling through the cluttered calendars to find a time slot for your next meeting.


Improvements:

  • Multi-calendar support now available in Aerotime, works with all your Google calendars.
  • We have updated the Slack emoji for Aerotime’s Focus Time from 🎧 to 🧑‍💻 to avoid confusion with Slack’s huddle icon.
  • Aerotime's toasts are now cleaner and easily visible.
  • Focus music gets fresh playlists on shuffle for all your working moods.
  • Now you can escape from your task drag-and-drop flow by hitting Esc.
  • Slack connection starts working instantly now. No need to wait for 5-10 min for the next sync cycle.

Bug Fixes:

  • The Aerotime calendar now automatically scrolls as you are dragging tasks on the calendar.
  • Creating a meeting on Sunday used to take you to next week, fixed now.
  • Add Agenda button used to disappear after deleting the agenda in an existing meeting. We have fixed it now.
  • While dragging and dropping tasks onto the calendar, tasks would sometimes vanish and re-appear. We have fixed the issues.

The power of Aerotime scheduling

 

New

Improvements:

  • We have made improvements to task drag and drop into the calendar. It's faster, snappier, and no more accidental mouse drops.
  • Based on all the valuable feedback received, we have re-designed key parts of Aerotime. The new design makes task workflows more efficient.

  • We have simplified new meeting creation, no more juggling between different parts of the screen. Click anywhere on the calendar and experience the smoothest new meeting creation ever.

Bug Fixes:

  • Meeting agenda URLs always open the link in a new window. Earlier this would mess up the mac app causing users to restart it.
  • While viewing guest calendars, we now show guest colors in unaccepted meetings to distinguish them from users’ unaccepted meetings.

New

Improvements:

  • Move meetings & tasks in Aerotime instantly. Aerotime now runs with you at the pace you need to be effective.
  • You can now delete meetings from Aerotime, just right-click on an event or task you want to delete.
  • We now show “outside working hours (OWH)” as the status in new meeting recommendations when the time is outside the working hours of a guest. Earlier this was inaccurately displayed as “out of office”.
  • Aerotime automatically recommends “people you meet often” during new meeting creation before you even start typing their names.
  • New Mac updates don’t disrupt your workflow and silently notify you that a new update is available. You will encounter Aerotime’s annoying popup for the last time in your next update 😉

Bug Fixes:

  • 15-minute meetings/tasks can now be dragged. Earlier resize anchor would make it impossible to drag 15-minute blocks.

Task visibility settings for your team

 

New

  
  • Now you can choose to make your tasks public or private. This helps your team understand what you're busy with and avoid double booking. This setting applies to two places.

    • New Meeting
      • Public task visibility: When someone from your company is trying to book a meeting with you, they can see your task names in the calendar grid.
      • Private task visibility: In this case, they can only see that you're busy. No task details are visible.
    • Slack (only applies when you have integrated Slack with Aerotime)
      • Public task visibility: At the time of your scheduled task, your status will show that you're busy and your task name will appear. Your Slack notifications will be snoozed if the task is in your focus time.
      • Private task visibility: At the time of your scheduled task, your status will show that you're in focus mode but the contents of your task will not be revealed. Your Slack notifications will be snoozed if the task is in your focus time.

Notes and scheduling options in tasks

 

New

  
  • Now add notes to your tasks. This helps you add more details to a single task which enables you to:
    • Add links and docs to a specific task
    • Create a macro task that has smaller items that you want to schedule together
    • Add further notes
