Setting Your work style

Ampll uses your work style preferences in several ways:

  • to drive the logic for your energy timeline
  • to customize the recommendations in your activity cards
  • to share with your coworkers

During installation, Ampll prompts you to set some initial work style parameters.

After the setup tour completes, Ampll presents an activity card for you to optionally connect your work calendar and set your meeting preferences.

Connecting your work calendar, while optional, is strongly recommended to incorporate your schedule and your conference call activity into your energy measurement.  If you have multiple calendars (for example, a work and a personal calendar), you can add them as data sources here.  You can optionally add a data source later, if you prefer.
