We’ve had a whopping 21 of our early users request this feature - so we are so excited to announce that this week, we released Headspaces!

Headspaces were built to help those of you that have several things on the go at once, stay organised.

They allow you to bring everything together in Compose but split your jobs, projects, hobbies and side hustles into separate Headspaces that you can THEN organise with splits. 🥳

Steps to create a new Headspace

→ Click the new plus icon on the left of your screen.

→ Name your headspace and choose the relevant accounts.

→ Build your splits for your new headspace.
