Ep 16 – Is Motion the Latest, Greatest Auto-Scheduler?

If you’re interested in using online calendars you may have seen ads for the auto-scheduler called Motion. You have probably wondered what it might be like to use it, but you don’t have the time or bandwidth for a proper test.

In this episode with Dr. Melanie Wilson we share the results of our actual firsthand tests for you. We both have spent years using auto-schedulers so we have a few insights you won’t hear elsewhere. Tune in to find out what we discovered and you could save some time, stress and even money.

Clarification – We also stated that Motion does not have time maps, a SkedPal invention. It doesn’t, but their version is similar in functionality – just not as robust.
