What is Schedule?

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 is for!

Who can use schedules?

All Opal users can set up a scheduled session up to 24 hours in advance. Users on an 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
