Can I schedule sessions?

Want to automatically disconnect certain distractions at different times of the day? (Like starting every morning with an hour of distraction-free time?) That's what scheduling sessions is for!

Who can use schedules?

All Opal users can set up a scheduled session up to 24 hours in advance. Gems on a paid plan can set recurring sessions (on a weekly schedule) and sessions starting more than 24 hours in advance.

When should I use schedules?

Opal's Scheduling feature allows you to schedule an Opal session in advance. Some examples:

  • Spend the first hour of your day unplugged - 8 AM -> 9 AM
  • Limit distractions during work - 9 AM → 5 PM
  • Prevent doom-scrolling before bedtime - 9 PM → 1 AM

Here's how you schedule an Opal session (iOS):

Navigate to the tab labeled “Sessions” with the Calendar icon. You can create sessions and customize:

  • When you want your session to start
  • The duration of your session
  • The name for your session
  • The protection level for your session
  • When you want your session to repeat (For upgraded users)

Once set, the session will kick-in automatically at the start-time.

Here's how you schedule an Opal session (Browser):

Open the Opal browser extension and scroll to Schedule. You can customize:

  • When you want your session to start and end
  • The name for your session
  • When you want your session to repeat
