Average: Move to Done when Goal is reached
I noticed when setting up a habit like "Push-Ups" that if I have a daily goal of say 100, and I log 20 push-ups, then the task is considered as "Done" even though I haven't reached my goal. The same is reflected on the iOS 14 widget. Isn't this a bug? Shouldn't the habit only be considered as Done when I reach my goal of 100?
Thanks for reaching out! This is not a bug because most Average Per Day goals are only logged once (e.g Sleep) but I totally understand where you’re coming from. So, I’m thinking through a new field called Move to Done that could have a When Goal is Met option for these scenarios. We have to get through a few more updates before we could add this, but I’m planning to add it when we’re able.
In the meantime, if you log less than your goal for the day you can always swipe right or tap the log icon while it’s in the Done section and tap Add New Log. The app will automatically add all the day’s logs up for you.
Hope that helps. Best of luck with all your goals & habits!
I am not sure if this is a feature that I don't know how to activate or not. But I don't understand why a goal says completed if its a goal that requires multiple sessions throughout the day.
Example: I set a goal to do 100 push-ups a day. However, I will do several sets throughout the day. After my first set I logged the 20 that I did and it is now marked complete. I can still log additional sets but it is marked as done and (most importantly) the red notification on my phones home screen is gone. I would like this to not be marked as complete until I log all 100 push-ups.

Thanks! Looking forward to seeing this implemented :)
Yes please! It’s misleading to have the tracker show a green check and get moved to the “done” section if you’ve only logged, say, 1.5 hours of a 3-hour goal. For goals like this, it’d be really helpful to be able to have the tracker display the same way that Yes or No trackers do, with an X/Y to the right until you hit your goal.
When an average goal is logged once, it disappears from the today view. This is fine for logs done once per day, but average goals done multiple times per day should stay in the today view until the average is met. Can there be an option to choose whether to close it out for the day, or have it stay in today view until the average is met? Having this as an option would really help the today view be more accurate for those of us that use average goals multiple times per day. (I’ve tried using habits, but if I need to log 30 out of 50, it’s very time consuming to repeatedly swipe. A different option would just be a separate setting to choose whether to log via swipes or number count.
Yes, this would be very helpful!!! My TODAY view is never accurate, because I have several goals I want to log (as averages), but do multiple times per day. I’ve tried to use the “habit” function for this, but swiping for something you do multiple times in one sitting (like reading for 20 mins out 60) is time consuming. I just wish we could keep it in TODAY view until we are done for the day. The original poster’s idea of a “done for the day” button would solve this issue. Thank you!
I just discovered if you swipe right on the completed task you can update the count. This helps but still would be nice to have the goal staying in the active unlogged area as a reminder until you say you are done with it.
Please add ability on average number goals to continue to add to/edit your number during the day without having to undo your log and redo it each time. It could have a button where you enter your number that you can choose to close/final log the goal for the day or keep it open. This is for something you want to count total number of times you did it during the day. But it’s not a one time per day thing. You want to keep track of total number throughout the day and have a total at end of the day.
I want to practice for 30 minutes per day. I create a goal to count an input of ≥30 as a success. An hour is great too. But <30 should be a red X because I failed the goal. I want to keep track of when I went above and beyond (so a simple binary yes/no wouldn't suffice) and I also want an indication for failing to reach my goal. Right now it just congratulates me on logging at all.
