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. :)

    Looking forward to this feature. A cumulative progress percentage for all or select habits and goals will be beneficial.

    I agree. I have a year target goal but would like to be able to see plot lines on my chart. If I could toggle between week month etc it would be ideal. Plots are to close to see anything at this point.

    I have an ongoing goal of exercising and would like to see it break down by week, month, or year from time to time to see how I am doing recently, or comparing with last period (year etc). It would be great to toggle the chart to aggregate by different time range. For now I have to create a new tracker every year to quickly see how I did every year. Thanks!

    Great to hear that you are working on this! Please make it intuitive to see how the performance on one tracker, relates to another. I posted an idea about this called "Overlay Tracker Results to Find Correlations" but I am mentioning here also because it seems related to this feature

    Maybe simple but successes vs opportunities to give an idea how you are doing overall or in the different categories on the 1st screen

    Or let me pull all my data down for import into an excel sheet etc. Thanks.

    Good! I'm testing strides vs habitbull at the moment. During the week Strides is a clear winner. Right now I'm doing my weekly review and want to add some screenshots of how the week went into Evernote. The clear winner here is habitbull, so if you implement this I will go with strides for sure! :)

    When tapping your individual goal you get an overview how you have done with that particular goal percent wise. How about a feature, that can be turned on or off, that ranks your tasks from most succesful to least succesful. This way you get an automatic real time overview of which tasks are working and which tasks need adjusting.

    Now that we've rebuilt all the charts from scratch with a much more powerful modern framework, we're designing this Progress Reports feature!

    It will allow you to see everything that happened daily across all your trackers, grouped into weekly reports, so you can see your overall success rate by day and week, and even slice & dice the data by Tag (e.g. How have I been doing on my Health trackers?).

    A type of heatmap would work perfectly! You could visually see whicb habits have you succeed and which need work

    It would be really cool if the dashboard accopmlished this through the use of micro charts like those invented by Edward Tufte

    http://www.edwardtufte.com/bboard/q-and-a-fetch-msg?msg_id=0001OR

    With Microcharts you can get an entire years worth of data into the space of a word.

    This would make much better use of the screen real estate on the overall dashboard page and convey massive amounts of information effectively.

    Agreed this is badly needed! One of the main, core features of an app like this IMO

  • Anonymous commented  ·   ·  Flag as inappropriate

    This is a much needed feature - a "simple" weekly&monthly average and/or score, so we could get a feel and a "grade" for our overall performance this week.
    I love how in irunurun there's a simple scoring system, shows how much maximum "points" you can score for each of your habits, based on 3 levels of importance, then it just sums it all together to give the user an overall score. Simple average math.
    (Can't believe irunurun is 5 years old and still no one else embraced that system of points-scoring...)

    Have a graph available to show your overall performance across all habits and goals.

    Would either display as a single metric (average success), or all habit and goal graphs overlaid on top of each other (or user can choose display option?)
