What is MakeSomeBreak app?
MakeSomeBreak app analyses your schedule in MS Teams calendar and sends blockers to secure your time for breaks.
Why We Decided to Create Such an App?
We live in a new reality where most organizations have to start working online. Remote work is a good chance to stay active even from home. And when you have meetings back-to-back all day long, you really need a break. But what if have just realized it’s time to have a rest and it’s too late to make it. Because you can’t change your schedule at the last moment. That is why we’ve designed MakeSomeBreaks that helps to plan breaks even forward, so you may be sure you’ll always have a couple of minutes for your caffeine boost before you get back to work.
One more reason to create MakeSomeBreak was our concern about kids. They also use MS Teams for remote education. Their schedule is also very tight, and very often there are no breaks planned. This may be very harmful to kids’ productivity at least and to their health as worst. MakeSomeBreak is a guarantee of a pause required between the lessons.
