How Ampll increases awareness of your energy

Think of the energy you can put into your work as coming from a rechargeable battery.  Assuming you get a good night's rest, you might start your day off with your Ampll battery "charged" and with its energy ebbing and flowing throughout the day as different activities "drain" or "boost" your Ampll battery.

The Ampll battery represents your energy in work and life

While you may already understand the need to manage your energy, today's "always on" work culture can make you lose awareness of how activities affect you "in the moment."  Through technology and a little bit of information from you, Ampll helps you regain your awareness of your energy levels so that you can bring the best to your work and be a better teammate.  To help you keep track of how different activities throughout the day affect you, AMPLL maintains an Energy Timeline.

Ampll Energy Timeline

As shown, Ampll models certain kinds of events (in orange) as "drains."  These drains include:

  • Back-to-back meetings
  • Meetings outside of preferred hours or on "no meeting days"
  • Interruptions to intended focus time
  • Total elapsed work time in front of the computer
  • and more

Ampll models other events (in green) as "gains" or "boosts".  Gains include:

  • Taking time to move around or exercise
  • Connecting with friends
  • Downtime
  • Having time to just focus
  • and more

Your Ampll battery has 6 bars, and its level increases or decreases based on your calendar, your computer activity, your work style preferences, and information you provide.

Ampll represents battery levels of above 4 in green, values at 2 or 3 in orange, and values at 0 or 1 in red.  

Your aim should be end your day with at least 2 bars, as the Ampll battery only estimates an overnight gain of 4 bars when it detects your downtime for the night.  If Ampll detects work activity throughout the night, it will not apply that overnight gain.

Throughout the day, you should keep your battery above 3 so you can bring your best to work.
