Note: we're aware of certain browser issues affecting the reliability of desktop notifications. We hope to address these soon.

To alert you that a session is coming up, Focusmate can play a tone and display a banner on your desktop before the start of the session.

You can configure this reminder in Settings, under the Notifications tab.

Your session reminder settings are available in the "Notifications" tab of your Focusmate settings page

You can turn the feature on/off with the checkbox at the right. After you update a setting, make sure to save your changes by clicking the "Save notifications" button at the bottom of the page.

Troubleshooting: If you aren't seeing a notification pop-up or aren't hearing a tone, please see this article.

Please note: Currently this feature only works if you have the Focusmate Calendar open in a browser tab. It's also not yet supported on mobile devices. We are working to remove these limitations!
