Mikaela Horvath Announcements, Day Planner, Wellness Planner

We at Team Owaves are excited to introduce Version 2.9.2 of the Owaves app, which includes Focus Widgets and several other useful features!  

We know you have requested widgets and have looked forward to their arrival; enjoy them as our gift to you this holiday season! 

If you already have the App Store version of Owaves, your app should have automatically updated to Version 2.9.2! Otherwise, please download the Owaves app at owaves.com/appstore to get the new features! Read on for a brief overview of each of the new features in 2.9.2.

Get a quick overview of what’s on your plate in the present moment and what’s up next, right from your phone’s home screen! You can customize this widget to be whatever size works best for you: Small, Medium, or Large!

Instagram Stories: Share Your O to IG Stories 

Want to share your O to your Instagram Stories, rather than just your feed? We’ve got you covered! Here are the steps to do so:

  2. Swipe left where the row of apps is and select the “More” button with the three dots.
  3. Scroll down and click “Stories.”

And there you have it! Now you can inspire your friends with your day plan by posting it to your Stories!

Notifications: Bug Fixes for Notifications       

Enjoy a more easy-to-use notification system that’s free of bugs! When you set your default alert time to “None” in the past, all your alert times on every future planned event would set to “None” as well. However, this issue has now been FIXED in 2.9.2, so you can now get the correct notifications you need!

Want to be notified at the start of your lunch break, 10 minutes before class time, and 1 hour before a work meeting? Prefer no notification before your relaxation time? Set up unique alert times for individual activities by doing the following:

  1. Add an activity to your O
  2. Select the “Event Details” button on the bottom left
  3. Press the “Alert” option to set your desired notification for that activity

If you’d like to set up alert times for already planned activities, simply give each activity on your O that you’d like to set a notification for a quick press, and the “Event Details” menu will pop up. Press down on the Alert option to set your desired notification for that activity.
