Shortcut Information

Use this shortcut to “schedule” your Focus modes for a specified period, after which the Focus deactivates.

This shortcut works well to dig into a task for a set amount of time, but get prompted by your device to context shift *out* of that focus when the time is right.

This shortcut adds 50 minutes to the current time as the default time in Ask For Input, so you can quickly Focus for the better part of an hour.
