Introduction

Frequently Asked Questions

Calendars

Do I have to add my calendars to Timepage

No – calendars are handled on the iOS system level, so you don’t have to sign into your calendar accounts in Timepage. When you first launch the app, you’ll just need to give Timepage access to your calendars.

Can I send invites from Timepage?

Absolutely! When you add people via natural language inputs or the People header, they will receive an invitation through the iOS calendar.

How to I change calendar colors?

If you’re not fond of the calendar colors initially assigned by Timepage, you can make changes by:

  1. Opening Heat Map
  2. Tapping the list icon at the bottom of the screen
  3. Tapping on the color next to your calendar and selecting a new color

Alternatively, you can have Timepage auto-match your current calendar colors to Timepage calendar colors from the same screen.

Travel and Directions

How do I set my default travel method?

Whether you tend to drive, walk, or bicycle, you can set your default travel method in the “Travel and Directions” preference.

Why can’t I configure Public Transport/Transit as my default travel option?

Allowing setting Public Transport / Transit as the default for events is something that we’d certainly like to be able to do. The reason we haven’t done it yet is because Apple’s coverage of public transport travel information is so limited geographically. If you set it as the default, and then moved to an area that doesn’t have coverage (sometimes even just a few km/miles away), then we’d not be able to automatically get those transport details for you and set the alarms appropriately.

Having said that, it is something we’d like to improve. We have an entry on our Feature Request board for this very thing: https://bonobo.canny.io/timepage/p/set-public-transport—transit-as-default-mode-of-transport. Please add your vote here to ensure you know about any developments.

Functionality

To perform a search, either tap “Search” in Menu or swipe in a right to left gesture on the Menu panel.

Does Timepage work with Siri?

Yes, but in two indirect ways:

  1. Via adding events to the stock calendar through Siri
  2. Through the use of Shortcuts

To find out more on how Shortcuts work with Timepage and Actions, visit https://medium.com/moleskine-digital-studio/launching-shortcuts-from-timepage-and-actions-9693c782eb57.

Is there to-do support?

By itself, Timepage does not have built-in to-do support. However, through our integration with our app Actions, you can bring over your tasks and act on them in Timepage. To find out more, visit Actions in Timepage.

How do I request a feature in Timepage?

We love receiving ideas for new Timepage features. The easiest way to request a feature is by navigating to “Help” in the Timepage Menu and tapping “Feature Request.” Alternatively, you can visit https://bonobo.canny.io/timepage.

Is my data private?

Our system of using iOS calendars in Timepage means that none of your data is sent or stored on any of our servers. Instead, it’s stored directly on your device. When we ask certain app permissions, we are using this information to deliver relevant content to you. If you’d like to read more about our privacy policy, you can do so here.

What languages does Timepage support?

Currently Timepage fully supports:

  • English
  • Japanese
  • Chinese (Traditional)
  • Chinese (Simplified)
  • Italian
  • French
  • German
  • Spanish
  • Russian
  • Portuguese (Brazilian)

Your iPhone must be set to one of these languages for Timepage to appear in that language. Timepage uses your iOS device language(s), which is set in iOS Settings → General → Language & Region.

Note: We’ve chosen to support Brazilian Portuguese due to user numbers, but there is plenty of overlap between the two versions – especially when written. Some Portuguese speakers may need to add Brazilian Portuguese in the iOS Settings app under General > Language & Region. By tapping “Add Language,” you can add Brazilian Portuguese as a second option followed by English. After doing this, apps will first attempt to function in Portuguese (pt-PT), then Brazilian Portuguese (pt-BR), then English.

Is Timepage draining my battery?

We’ve optimized Timepage to run effectively on your device. If, in iOS’ battery settings, you see Timepage taking up a significant chunk of your battery usage, this doesn’t necessarily mean that Timepage is the source of your draining battery. In the battery screen, these numbers are relative – for example, if Timepage has used 20% of your battery, it has only used 20% of the battery you’ve used thus far. Therefore, if you still have a battery at 95%, Timepage has used 1%. When considering Timepage’s impact on your battery, consider how much of the overall battery you’ve used and what percentage of that drain Timepage makes up.
