Break big goal into small steps
Allow milestones to be broken down into smaller steps. Project trackers currently only have milestones, but this will make it easy to break each milestone down into subtasks so you can go through a checklist of action items to get a better feel for the completion percentage for the milestone and stay on track.
Big goals with nested benchmarks, yes!
Would this be better to think of it as linking goals?
The goal is to have $1000 in savings.
The habit/action is to save $10/week.
You can enter both currently, but nesting them, or seeing them in context creates much more power. This becomes more true on more complex goals.

Told in a slightly different way, this is a great example of one other feature I'd like to see! I'm voting again because it's still a great idea!
If you plan to be able to bench 120 lbs more than last year, you should be able to set mini goals allowing you to show 2.5 lbs per week or 10 lbs a month. Or drinking water- if your goal is to drink 1 gallon (128 ounces) then have an alarm at 10 am 2 pm etc with different goal amounts adding up to reach main goal amount per day. Hard to reach a goal without a set plan.
Also can be made with money. If you have a goal to save 1000$ you don't just throw in lose change randomly. You set it to 10$ a week or whatever your goal is. This will allow longer goals to seem like lots of short mini goals that are easily attainable and will result in a satisfying feeling when you constantly see green everything. Allowing the long term goals to have shorter weekly or daily goals will make it easier to not only log but keep on track.
Post any comments to add or change on this and make it popular if you'd want to see this change. Thanks

Milestones could use more granularity. Sub-steps to any task/goal would be great
Kind of like todoist does
