Energy Timeline and your current activities

The energy timeline currently only shows energy events which impact your current battery score.  In general, meetings affect your current score after they have ended.  In addition, many work activities only affect your battery reading after 2 hours of cumulative activity.  To see all past activities detected by AMPLL, you can visit your Calendar view.

AMPLL and Calendar Updates

AMPLL is designed to sync automatically with your Google or Microsoft calendar events.  If more than 30 minutes have elapsed and you have updated your Dashboard or Calendar view with no success, please contact us.  We are trying to isolate situations where AMPLL loses connections to Google or Microsoft calendars.
