Cushion

Peace of mind for freelancers

Cushion will help you predict your unpredictable schedule and steady your unsteady income

Cushion was built out of a need for a less-stressful freelance life. Its goal is to provide better insight and awareness, so the roller coaster ride of freelancing feels smoother, with fewer surprises.

Know Your Availability

Cushion can indicate exactly when you’re available based on your current workload—one look is all you need when talking to a new client.

Prevent Burnout

Cushion automatically highlights when you’re overbooked, so you can avoid taking on too much work at once. Burnout is fun for no one.

Plan Your Time Off

Cushion includes vacations in your work schedule, so you can avoid booking a client gig when you should be relaxing.

Zoom Into Your Schedule

See your schedule from a bird’s-eye view, then zoom into a month with a single click—much quicker than waiting for a new page to load.

Take Notes on the Spot

When a client raises another red flag or the scope of a project changes, make a note of it wherever you are in Cushion, in a matter of seconds.

Drag & Drop Workloads

Use workloads to represent the time you expect to spend throughout a project. Easily adjust them by moving them around or resizing them.

Share Your Availability

Cushion will automatically keep your status up-to-date on your website using the availability badge, which is customizable and easy to install.

Integrations

Cushion integrates well with other services, so you won’t need to enter information twice—only a few clicks and you’re good to go.
