Let’s get started.
Rotime was created to help people with irregular schedules maintain a recurring routine that adaps to their waking hours. This is a common problem caused by insomnia, frequent travel, DSPD1, N242, among others.
Calendars and similar planning tools are not flexible enough to accommodate constantly changing schedules, and their predictability ends up becoming a hindrance rather than a benefit.
An initial attempt at a solution may involve setting up repeating events on a calendar, which quickly proves impractical, given that events are not dependent on one another and require daily manual rearrangement to prevent overlapping.
A complex spreadsheet that mimics a calendar with auto-adjusting formulas could also be devised, but let’s face it, the user interface is way too complex and unappealing to look at throughout the day.
Applying this method (every day a new schedule) on paper and pencil provides a simple and elegant solution, but the limitations of analog text (and having to rewrite) when compared to the potential of its digital counterpart is always present.
Rotime was born out of the balance struck by combining the concepts of days and hours from calendars, dynamic formulas from spreadsheets, and the simplicity of pure text formatting from pen and paper.
In today’s era of remote work, the importance of improving coordination between different people, their time zones, schedules, and other factors is often emphasized. However, there is still work to be done to bridge this gap. New tools and methods must be developed to address both new and overlooked challenges such as this.
Hopefully, Rotime becomes a step in that direction.
