Hi. This isn't really what I was looking for - I need something that handles both goals and tasks. How do I delete my account? Thanks

    Hello Dawn

    Sorry to see you go. As a matter of interest, what specific task management functionality were you looking for that you did not find in Goalscape?

    You have only a Free user account: you did not have to provide any credit card details when you registered and we will never charge you. If you still wish to remove your account completely please post again to confirm and we will delete it for you.

    All the best

    Hi Richard

    Thanks for getting back to me. I should have said it's a goal & habit tracker that I'm after and not something for managing tasks. So I'd be looking for all the usual stuff that comes with habit trackers - but one that incorporates those into larger goals.

    I think I was being a bit hasty last night because I do like how goalscape visualises everything. So, I'll keep my account for now and give it fair chance, for a month or so this time, before making my mind up!

    Hi Dawn

    Ah, you mean something to record positive habits like 'Walk A Mile A Day'. We call those 'recurring goals'; and it is true that Goalscape does not adequately support them, since they always need action ('maintenance work') and may never be considered 100% complete.

    One way to do it would be to arrange all your positive habits around a parent goal 'habits' and set your 'progress' according to the percentage of days on which you completed each within a certain period (10 days would make the calculation easy!). At the end of each period you can set the progress in that goal to reflect your % completion rate for the preceding period, or your cumulative % completion rate (total days walked/total days elapsed x 100), depending on whether you want an immediate or an overall perspective.

    Enjoy the journey!

    Yes, that's pretty much what I decided do to. I've given each habit a due date of 100 days, so 1 day = 1% - it couldn't be simpler. I hadn't thought of organising them round a specific habits goal, but it sounds like a smart way to do it so will try that out. Appreciate the suggestions.

    Many thanks

    Splendid! And you can still review every week, so you see your progress shading advancing inexorably across the goal map – it's a great way to reinforce motivation.
