Installing AMPLL

Requirements

Analyzing information about your collaboration patterns requires that we request authorization scopes from your work calendar (either Microsoft or Google) account, as well as permissions on your computer.  The nature of this data is very sensitive, and our Privacy Policy and Terms of Use indicate that we will display your data to you to deliver customized reporting and insights, but that we will aggregate and anonymize your data for use in our learning models and in any presentation of data for our community of users.

To use AMPLL, you will need:

  • a Microsoft Outlook 365 or Google Calendar account
  • a Mac running OS X 10.15 ("Catalina") or higher

Optionally, you can also authorize AMPLL to integrate with Microsoft OneDrive for Business, Microsoft Outlook 365 Email, Google Drive, and Gmail.  Other integrations are coming soon. For more information about how AMPLL users the data from external data sources, please review the App Permissions page.
