Track #Olympics Time with Calendar #Hashtags

At Esper, we’re planning to watch the Rio Olympics – everything from Michael Phelps swimming to Mallory Pugh playing soccer to Usain Bolt running (and subsequently gloating). How much of our time these next two weeks will be spent watching Olympians and what sports?


We found a calendar online that has all the Rio events on one calendar and we could use Esper to tag each of these events. In the past, you would log into Esper to tag events on your calendar. Now, simply put a hashtag anywhere in your calendar event using Google, Outlook, Office365, or whatever calendar app you normally use.

Log into Esper, and you’ll see that these hashtags create graphs to see what exactly you’re spending time on.

These hashtags also populate Esper’s weekly and daily email reports.Your weekly report shows you how your week went and how your week will turn out. Your daily agenda shows today’s agenda and the high-level tags that dominate your day.Screen Shot 2016-08-03 at 5.43.00 PM.png

So, now you can #Sales all those sales calls, #1on1 all your one-on-one meetings, and track all the #Olympics events to your heart’s content. We’re excited to see how you use Esper, and enjoy the 2016 Summer Olympics in Rio!
