Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs) 🤔

What happens if I forget to complete a task?

  • If you do not mark a task as complete within 30 minutes of its scheduled time or deadline, Motion's dynamic scheduling feature will automatically move the task to optimize your calendar and prioritize other tasks.

My task was rescheduled and I just marked it as complete. How can I make it so that it shows I completed it at the correct time?

  • You can click and drag the task onto the correct time in the past to help you keep track of your work.

I have my completed tasks on my Motion calendar, but why can't I see them in my Outlook/Google calendar?

  • You cannot view completed tasks on your Outlook or Google calendar. Motion will only sync auto-scheduled tasks externally on your main calendar.
