Frequently Asked Questions

How does Outset work?

Outset will create a custom calendar, which it will populate with your activities plan. This plan will update regularly based on the weather forecast and on what Outset learns from you and your preferences. 


For instance, if you tell Outset that you want to run, walk, and go to the gym, Outset will create events for each activity on your calendar based on the weather forecast, your availability, your preferences (e.g. how many times you’d like to perform each activity and for how long), and your goals (e.g. if you would like to exercise more, Outset will suggest more activities in an incremental fashion). 


It works exactly like any other calendar you have - you can decline or reschedule a suggested event, create new events, or delete existing events.
