Yesterday I used Zapier almost for the first time.
What I did with it was to improve my time blocking workflow.
First, I created a calendar named “Focus Time”. I create events in the calendar (with no title or anything).
It’s a trigger for the rest of the workflow.
Now what happens is,
Zapier copies the event and put it in my work calendar saying “Blocker - Focus Time”.
When the event starts, Zapier sets my Slack status to “Sorry, focus time until x:xxpm”.
When the event ends, Zapier revert back my Slack status.
I’ve used this only once so far. And during the focus time, no one DMed me yet
Anyway, by officially saying I’m in a focus time, I can feel free to ignore any notifications and focus.
I like this! Any other tip you have?
