New in Focuster: Pin Actions Anywhere

Even with smart automatic scheduling, sometimes you’d like to manually adjust your actions to start at a specific time.
Focuster’s pinning feature allows you to set up a start time for your actions regardless their priority in your list. This means that you can override the auto scheduling and move any action to any time you want.
How to Use Pinning
Imagine you have set up the 3 most important actions for your day. Also, you need to reserve a table at a restaurant that opens at 4pm.
Simply drag the action on the calendar to 4pm and it will be there regardless of the priority in the day list.
Once the time is reached, the pinned action will be rescheduled and move forward in priority order. So if calling the restaurant needs to be a top priority make sure it is high up in your Day list priority order.
3 Awesome Things About Pinning Feature
- There are multiple ways to pin the action on your calendar (check out our help doc for details).
- Once pinned, the action will remain in its place until its end time is reached, no matter how many changes will happen with your schedule.
- It allows actions to overlap. Now you can schedule multiple actions at the same time. For example, to drop off the letters to the Post Office during your lunch break.
