Powerful Analytics in Shovel


Gates and Musk use Time Blocking
In a recent study, timeboxing was named the most useful productivity “hack” and it is how Bill Gates and Elon Musk plan their busy days.
Simply put, it means assigning individual tasks into a calendar for specific durations of time.
And Shovel makes time-blocking EASY!

Benefits of Time-Blocking

  • Accountability: Same as with having a meeting in your schedule, when a task is on your calendar, you are making an obligation to yourself that you’ll work on it at that time.
  • Knowing what’s possible: Students who don’t plan their day often overestimate how much they can get done. Timeboxing will help you match tasks with time in your calendar.
  • Prioritizing: By time-blocking when they’ll work on each task, you’ll naturally need to prioritize what you’ll do first.

Sync your school system and calendars

Shovel connects to your LMS and Calendar

Import your tasks from Canvas, Brightspace, and Moodle into Shovel where they are much more useful. When things change, Shovel updates automatically.

Among others, Shovel is helping students who have ADHD and bipolar disorder

Our Why

Shovel Founder Was Overwhelmed

we know the struggle

Our founder was a student-athlete who got overwhelmed

Petr got injured and the more time he spent trying to get healthy, the less time he had for school. Soon enough he had bad grades and declining mental health.


So he built the tool he wished he’d had as a student

There was no tool to help Petr manage his tasks, classes, and practices at the same time, so he decided to help the next generation of students by building it for them.

Why the name Shovel?

Shovel is a tool for getting things done. Simple and effective.

Shovel is an action. It’s about doing hard work, some of which may not be pleasant.

Shovel is a beginning. It’s groundbreaking. Starting something new and finishing something big, one scoop at a time.

Dig out of that pile of homework!
