    Hello Suresh

    Thanks for your inquiry.

    We are indeed considering ways to support 'habits' – possibly by implementing synergistic goals (those that contribute to more than one parent).

    In the meantime you can create a separate Level 1 subgoal for each 'habit' (and assign Importance appropriately). In Goalscape Online, each goal has its own URL, so you can connect each 'habit' goal to the goals to which it contributes by inserting hyperlinks in the Notes fields – and/or use Tags to indicate the association.

    Your 'Progress' in each habit could be simply the percentage of days you have completed the habit over the past week. As in the 'Be mindful' subgoal in your example, add 5 subgoals to each habit, then each time you complete the habit you can simply check off one of its subgoals as complete (using the right-click or Goal Edit menu options, or the checkbox in its panel or in the Goal List).

    Note too that you can also check off these subgoals as complete when you access your project using the free Goalscape Mobile app (for all Android and iOS phones and tablets). Because most phone screens are too small to represent the full 'goal map' UI and to support all the tap and drag functionality (even for those with very small fingers!), Goalscape Mobile displays your Online projects and goals in an indented text hierarchy format – just like the Goal List (Tree View) in the main application.

    Remember though that Goalscape is really a visual goal management solution rather than just a task management tool. So you can use Goalscape to represent your goals, priorities, plans and progress – and to remind you to complete daily 'habits' you can just use a Calendar or other third-party tool.

    You may also be interested in Emmett Lazich's article about using Goalscape in conjunction with other tools: Getting Things Done – with or without Dates.

    Enjoy the journey!
