Better understand how you’re spending your time in Google Calendar
You can now use Time Insights in Calendar, a personalized, analytical experience on the web, to see how your time is spent across meetings and collaborators.
Please note, you can only view Time Insights on a computer.
With the changes to our working environments in the past year, some people have more meetings and may feel less control over how their work time is spent. Time Insights can show you this data, and help you plan your time better.
With Time Insights, you’ll see information such as:
- Time breakdown: Based on your working hours and the types of meetings you have
- Time in meetings: Highlighting meeting-heavy days and time frames, as well as meeting frequencies
- People you meet with: Showing who you spend the most time meeting with. You can also pin key stakeholders to make sure you’re keeping in touch with them. Hovering over an individual will also highlight the meetings on your calendar that include that person
This information is visible to you, not your manager—so you can assess how you’re spending your time against your own priorities.
If you manage other people’s calendars and have “manage sharing access” permission to those calendars, you can view their Time Insights.
