My Focus

Managing your day to day and reaching a good work life balance is nothing short of challenging. Without solid planning, things can become quickly chaotic and affect your productivity - we've all been there! That's why we've created My Focus. 

 

What is My Focus? 

My Focus is a personal area that will empower you to take back control of your work-life balance and help you focus on what's really important. It is split into three categories:

  • Calendar
  • My Week
  • Check-in

Keep reading to find out how it works! 🙌

 

Where to find it

To access it, click on the three bars menu located on the upper left of your mobile app as below:

And voilà! Let's now dive into each category of that feature. 

 

Calendar

What is "Calendar"?

Work is important but so are your private tasks! Connect your personal calendar and schedule time slots for your specific monday.com tasks. This will allow you to have both your private and professional tasks in one single place and help you reach a better work-life balance. 

 

Note: Your calendar is private and visible only to you :)

 

Connect my calendar

Click on the cogwheel located on the upper left of your screen to open the settings.

My Week

What is "My Week"

"My Week" is a great way for you to see everything you and your team need to accomplish this week, next, or even what is overdue. It works by collecting all the tasks across your monday.com account that are due in the current week. This will help you get a better overview of what needs to get done and will help you prioritize better. 📆

How does it work?

For your tasks to reflect in "my week", you will need to make sure to have the following columns associated with each task:  

  • A People or Team Column
  • A Date or Timeline Column

 

Adjust your settings 

To adjust your settings, click on the cogwheel located on the upper left as below:

Here, you'll be able to decide if you want to see deadlines or tasks with dates that are not in deadline mode. For this, toggle between "only deadlines" or "all dates". 

If you manage members of your team or collaborate with other members of your team, it could be helpful to follow multiple members of your team. I work closely with my team member, Matt, so I follow Matt's tasks in addition to my own.

Update your tasks from My Week

You can update any of your tasks directly from My Week. Simply click on the item you want to edit. Then, you can update information on the item, and the board will update automatically with these changes.

Check-in

What is Check-in?

The check-in is a personal space visible only to you.

Here, you will be able to create custom questions that will be triggered at predefined days and hours. These questions are completely up to you to decide. It can be about your goals for the day, your accomplishments or just any personal life questions. Answering these questions creates a sense of commitment. You can see your answers later to retrospect on your goals. 

 

Adjust your settings

When clicking on Check-in, you will by default get the two questions below:

Click on any of these questions. Next, click on the cogwheel located on the upper right of your screen to access the settings:

Here, you will be able to customize the question as well as the specific days and time you'd like your monday.com app to trigger that question.
