Adjusting Your Battery

Sometimes the AMPLL battery may not represent your real energy level.  It's OK because your energy isn't just a function of your calendar and your computer activity.  For these situations, you can adjust the AMPLL battery directly.  

You can manually adjust the battery directly from the menu bar by clicking the bolt icon, selecting a number (0 through 6), and optionally entering a note.

To manually adjust the battery from the Dashboard, click the appropriate button (0 through 6) next to the battery icon.  You can enter a note directly on the energy timeline and click Done to save your changes.

Adding Gains and Drains

In other cases, you may want to note events or situations not represented by your calendar or computer activity as specific gains or drains.  Clicking the + icon enables you to add a gain or drain to directly to the energy timeline.  When you add a again or drain, you can customize the text and optionally share it with your teammates.  Note that you can click Now... to set a gain or drain in the past.

Removing Events from Your Energy Timeline

There are also times when AMPLL has the right idea in general, but the rules just don't apply in this instance.  For example, if you left a set of back-to-back meetings today more energized than you normal, you might choose to remove the drain on your energy timeline.  To remove an energy event, you can simply click on the energy event, click This is incorrect..., and opt to remove the energy event.

Adjusting Activity Details

Sometimes you may want to classify an activity differently from AMPLL defaults. Drilling down from the Energy Details into Activity Details lets you reclassify the Type of event.
