At Clockwise, we’re on a mission to help the world make time for what matters. We’ve spent years building a time orchestration platform that takes the work out of scheduling to deliver your ideal day. Today, thanks to AI, everything you thought you knew about the calendar is about to change.

The calendar as we know it is dead.

For literally hundreds of years, the calendar — a grid of squares — has been our go-to for understanding time. Yet, the way we go about scheduling and meeting with each other has evolved dramatically: our calendars aren’t paper objects on our desks any longer, they’re cloud software networked with all our co-workers, family, friends, and personal needs. Unfortunately, it seems every calendar app today defaults to the same complex game of calendar Tetris, and no solution has figured out how to lessen the pain and annoyance of mobile scheduling.

But what if you could speak to your calendar? And what if that calendar were capable of listening to your needs while simultaneously doing the same for anyone you need to schedule with?

Clockwise AI has entered the chat. 

Today, we’re excited to announce Clockwise AI. Powered by GPT, Clockwise AI lets you talk to your calendar like you would an assistant. It’s a first-of-its-kind conversational calendar experience. 

Clockwise AI has the ability to understand your individual calendar requests, honors your nuanced work preferences, and quickly and reliably handles the messy job of scheduling. Plus, Clockwise AI is capable of knowing the constraints and preferences of any you need to meet with, too. Because it knows exactly how you and your team like to work, you can trust Clockwise AI to get your day right, meaning you’ll spend less time on complex calendar management and more time on whatever matters most. 

Let’s say you want to schedule a team meeting…

in the next 7 days, 

 during your working hours, 

   but not in the morning when you have daycare drop off,

    or on Thursday when Jeff is remote,

     at a nearby coffee shop, 

      but not that coffee shop,

       and not during Nikita’s focus time

        or when Nancy is at that conference,

         and not Tuesday because you need a day without distractions.

These are all inputs that your brain already thinks about when you’re scheduling, and yet, this doesn’t even reflect all the nuanced and unstated preferences for Jeff, Nikita, and Nancy. As more people and requirements get layered on for a single meeting, the only reasonable thing to do is just pray for an open white space to schedule in, regardless of how well it works for anyone.

The real power of AI and LLM technologies is their ability to push computers to think more like humans. By leveraging GPT, we’re now able to understand exactly what you want when it comes to your calendar. Married with Clockwise’s ability to analyze data like individual schedules, tasks, preferences, and habits across multiple calendars at once, Clockwise AI delivers the most human-like calendar system that’s ever existed.

Here’s what you can do with Clockwise AI

Tackle complex calendar scenarios that seem impossible

By moving conflicting meetings and reprioritizing, Clockwise AI finds time in your day even where you don’t see it free on your schedule. It can also change multiple events on your calendar in a single request, like clearing your afternoon or rescheduling all your meetings when you’re OOO.

Manage your calendar via simple chat requests

Clockwise AI handles all the heavy lifting so you can avoid calendar Tetris. Plus, you can preview your calendar and accept the proposed schedule changes you want, all without leaving the chat.

Schedule on the go, or wherever you’re working  

With a Slack integration, a native web experience, and voice-to-text support, Clockwise AI works wherever and however you do. So you don’t have to be sitting at your desk to manage your calendar.

Plus, Clockwise AI can access, optimize, and coordinate those same preferences for multiple people at the same time. The result? Everyone gets an assistant they can completely delegate calendar management to – and not just the VPs and C-levels, but the front line managers, the individual contributors, even the executive assistants themselves.

AI unlocks a world of possibilities, and at Clockwise, we think it will fundamentally change how we interact with our most valuable resource: time. Arming every knowledge worker with their own calendar assistant changes the scheduling game, and gets Clockwise one step closer to being a true partner in time. Because you deserve an assistant in achieving your ideal day, every day. 

Clockwise AI is launching in beta. Want to be one of the first to give it a try? Join the waitlist for early access at getclockwise.com/ai.
