How can we improve Strides?

Progress Reports

The tracking of habits is quite good but instead of the dashboard we should have an option to switch to analytics view that would display all habits in calendar mode or in a graph so we can get a general idea of how we are doing with all our habits without having to click on each one individually. Tracking is useless without the ability to easily get the picture of where we stand and what we need to improve and that’s not as smooth as it should be right now in my opinion. Also would be very helpful for those of us who are more visually inclined and those who want to do a review of all their habits once a day or once a week without having to spend a lot of time on the app. (There’s also something that’s really pleasing to the eyes by just watching numbers, a graph would be much better) PLEASE UPVOTE SO THE DEVELOPERS CAN SEE THIS (if you agree of course).

Status update: We’re wrapping up a few improvements to the app that lay a solid foundation for the Progress Reports feature.

The only step left after v7.7.1 for iOS is to add support for reports to the API, so while we do that we’ll rebuild the Apple Watch app, then focus 100% on the big v8.0 release of Progress Reports!

Thanks for your patience. It’ll be worth the wait. :)

    Google calendar a must and outlook too. I love the idea of an calendar view.

    I like the idea of gold, silver, bronze, with thresholds for percentage of tasks done (customizable for each user) E.g. gold = >95%, silver = >80%, bronze= >50%, anything less than bronze does not show a circle on the date. Easy to visualize, yet flexible for each person.

    What I'm looking for with analytics is to be able to show the bar graphs across multiple trackers together or at least on page where I can simply scroll down and look for patterns across multiple trackers. As it currently is, I have to look at one bar graph, remember the numbers/dates and then jump to another related tracker and compare. The Today app does a great job of doing this by allowing you to add multiple "cards" to a given tracker (however, they've got other issues and just don't provide as rich a set of trackers as Strides).

    For example, if I'm tracking Sleep, Stress and Productivity then it would be nice to see how these correlate on a single page. Just line up the graphs and let me scroll down the graphs without all the other information.

    I would like to be able to look at one calendar that shows me little colored dots or even the circle of daily progress so I can see which days have a complete or almost complete circle and overall how close I am to completing all goals on all days they are scheduled. It would make me feel better to see 80% or 90% or 100% of all goals being met each day. Maybe those could be gold, silver or bronze days on the calendar. It is nice to see the calendar for each individual habit but I am much more interested in this “master”view.

    I’d love to see all my habits together on one graph so I can see how one correlates to the other.

    Habits show average values on dashboard, also show graphics over time. But users have to slide the screen to see old values. So we can’t see the graphics of all monthly/yearly values on the screen at the same time. If you design monthly view and yearly view for this kind of habits, it will be very good prefence.

    I would recommend you to refer the analytic view of "spending" app( this is the name of the app). This app has a very awesome analytic view.

    Would buy straight for Tis analytic feature. As This would really matter, as we want to see how overall we performed and hit goal for each month, each year. So we can see clearly the comparison, whether there is improvement or decline in performance for each categories.

    The app does currently have this feature, but it’s difficult to get to. This should really be the first thing we see when we open the app. The whole point of the app is to track our progress with a certain goal.

    It’s a pain in the butt to click on each individual habit, then click “history” and then click on the chart tab, to be able to see my calendar and percentage of time that goal has been met. Then I have to do that for each habit.

    And since I’m not seeing the success/failure relates regularly and succinctly, it doesn’t really help to motivate me, because I can easily ignore the history I have with each habit.

    Goals where you’re succeeding, where you need more work. More conversational dashboard which gives you a. Summary of how you’re doing.

    When showing this on a Calendar View, each habit’s indicator should be small enough to be able to see at least 9 (3x3 grid) at a glance and not have to tap on the date to see all habits performed that day.

    I think this would be super helpful to identify areas that you aren't hitting your target 100% of the time. Also to see where you have improved over time in areas that you've struggled in previously - it really is great to see your improvements.
