How can we improve Strides?

Log time in hr/min

I have a few tasks where I need to track time. For example playing the piano. I I have a goal of 2 hours a week, and at the moment all I can do it count by minutes then do math to figure out 120 means 2 hours. This get more unweildy when I have a goal of 15-20 for something. It would be nice to be able to set a goal as a unit of Time, then add as units of time.

        I'd also love to input time for amount of time spend studying languages. Maybe adding this under a "Number" goal and having something like "Duration/Time" for "What type of goal is this?" would be helpful. Graphs could still show amount of time spent and also wether or not goals of frequency are met.

        This would be fantastic! I currently use BeFocused Pro to track time intervals for studying to see trends over time, and then manually input the number of sessions completed in strides- but if I could simply track the time within Strides as well that would be extremely helpful.

        This was literally the main reason why I got this app. I was sad it didn’t have it in the first place, but I’ve adapted and still love the app, but I’d still like this feature!!

        Agreed. Would love a duration of a habit or goal. Currently I add into my description (e.g. read for one hour, run for 30 minutes)

        It could be very useful. And move this software to the next level. I hope that developers could realize it. Thank you!

        So happy to this is planned

        Most of my goals are time based
        As leaving the house on time determines weather or not I can get to the gym at the end of my day before going home

        Like the other comment I use a separate app to convert time to a number .. like 9:50 .. = 9.83

        But then as I'm reviewing my progress you have to then think about your actual average time result .. what time is 9.37 (well it's 9:22)

        Thanks

        I'm tracking my progress toward being able to run a 6 minute mile and this would be very helpful!

        It's exactly my case too. I use Soulver to convert time and it's an annoying extra step.

        This would be a great feature for my kid who needs to keep track of how much time he spent practicing each day (cello).

        Yes, adding "do by a certain time" feature would be a HUGE improvement for me. Daily habits especially morning habits need to have a time deadline (both in the app and consciously in my mind) - otherwise they can start to build up!! And having a deadline ensures they get done rather than pushed to the end of the day, and then skipped due to becoming too tired / having to many things left in the list. (Eg - meditate daily in the morning needs a deadline "by 10am")
        It would be great to see a graph to be able to plot ideal time vs deadline (eg meditate daily in the morning - ideal time 7.30am, deadline by 10am)
        This would be one of my top missing features of a truly effective habit logging / changing / creating app.
        Thanks
