Onboarding to Motion

Welcome to Motion! This step-by-step guide will walk you through the process of getting started with Motion, from signing up to navigating the onboarding flow. Let's dive in and unlock the full potential of productive scheduling!


Step 1: Sign Up for a 7-Day Free Trial

Onboarding won't work on a mobile browser. Motion works optimally on the web app or the desktop app. Once you complete the onboarding process, you'll gain access to the mobile app.

  1. Visit the Motion website at https://www.usemotion.com/ on any desktop browser.

  2. Click the β€œTry Motion for Free” button to begin the registration process.

  3. Choose your preferred login method: Google, Microsoft, Apple, or sign up using your email and password.

  4. Select the plan that fits your needs: Individual or Team Trial. The Team Trial is ideal for collaborative work.

  5. Choose your subscription: "annual" or "monthly" plan, and provide your billing information. A $1 card hold is placed to verify your account, but it will be released in a couple of days.

Step 2: Connect Your Calendar

  1. Connect your Google, Microsoft Outlook, or Apple (iCloud) calendar to Motion, granting all necessary permissions.

  2. Motion's event sync is bidirectional, meaning it pulls in your calendar events and synchronizes them with Motion.

  3. Specify which sub-calendars belong to you during this step.

Step 3: Onboarding Flow

  1. πŸ“… Work Hours Schedule: Create your work hours schedule where your tasks will be auto-scheduled and can move within those defined hours. This provides flexibility and efficient time management. You can create multiple schedules to accommodate different needs.
