Yes! The two day-planning practices we recommend most highly (to makers and managers alike) are: 1) Add day-planning as a task in your day plan. Instead of viewing it as a thing you do in preparation for work, view it as a daily part of your work; 2) Whenever possible, start that day-planning task at the end of each workday, rather than at the beginning, reserving any morning day planning for adjustments, not from-scratch blueprinting. The point being that your warm brain today is good for jump-starting your cold one tomorrow, while your cold brain may be better at identifying lofty expectations and course correcting as needed.

Yes, you can reorder the items in your plan whenever you like.
Simply hover over the item you’d like to move and you’ll see a set of two vertical ellipses to the left of the task‘s timer. Click and hold those ellipses to grab the item you’d like to move, then pull it down or up to get it where you want it in your plan. The dotted line shows you where your item will land. When you’ve found the right spot, release to drop the item in place.
As far as you like. Some Daycast users plan just one day ahead while others prefer to plan a whole week ahead. When taking time off, it can ease your re-entry to plan your first day back before leaving.
There’s currently no way to add a task to multiple days at once. If this capability would make Daycast more valuable to you, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know. If a significant number of users request that feature, we’ll add it to our roadmap. In the meantime, you can forward tasks to future dates (up to one week in advance) by first clicking the encircled arrow that surfaces when you hover over a task and then choosing the day you’d like to copy your task to.
Only you. If an admin or supervisor would like you to make a change in your plan, they’ll need to ask you to make the change. All team members can view any other team member’s plan, but no one can alter any plan but their own.
Only you. If an admin or supervisor notices an error in your time, they’ll need to ask you to make any adjustments. All team members can view any other team member’s time, but no one can edit any time but their own.
Anyone on your team can see your day plan by clicking on your name in their user panel. This brings them to your day plan, where their view is just like your own with one exception: No one can make changes, add tasks, or finalize your day but you.
Teammates who’ve filtered you out of their user panel won’t be able to navigate to your day plan, but if they filter you back in, they can.
Just click on their name in your user panel. You’ll see their entire day plan for the current day, and you can click on previous or future dates to see their past day plans or any they’ve prepared in advance.
You can! Click Filter People (in the bottom left of your Daycast window) and uncheck all the names you’d like to remove from your view. When you’ve finished, click somewhere else in the app to collapse the filter menu and you won’t see the un-checked team members in your User Panel. To re-add a team member to your view, click [number of] People Hidden (in the bottom left of your Daycast window) and check the names you’d like to add back into your view.
No. You’ll need to add them back into your user panel to do that. Just click [number of] People Hidden in the bottom left of your Daycast window, check the names of the users you’d like to add back in, then click somewhere else in the app to collapse the filter menu and see the newly added users. Now you can navigate to their day plan as usual by clicking on their name in your user panel.
Daycast helps busy professionals manage their time and protect their focus so they can do more of what matters most.
