Meeting time is, quite simply, time spent in meetings.
We filter out meetings that happened outside of your work hours set in your preferences. A meeting is only counted toward your meeting time if there is more than 1 attendee (to filter out events that you may have created as reminders). If you protect code time on your calendar, those events are also excluded.
We measure meeting time so that you can see an impact analysis against metrics such as code time. Meetings can interrupt your flow if they are scheduled during peak code times, without enough time between them to allow for focused coding, or too frequently.
Better data leads to better decisions. Teams can streamline their schedules to avoid unnecessary meetings that interfere with deep work. Effective teams will strike the right balance between meetings and coding that works best for them.
