How to create a habit?

Time matters. In order to help you organize yourself and increase efficiency, we have developed this fantastic app. Now all your habits and plans are within hand’s reach and there is no chance you will forget to do anything important.

If you want to create a one-time task, please consider checking this guide - How to add a one-time task?

In this guide, we will talk about repetitive tasks (habits).

Adding a habit cannot be simpler. You can both write your own habit, or choose from the proposed list. To begin, make the first step:

On the main screen tap the blue "+" button.

I. If you want to create your own habit, tap the “Create Your Own” option on the “Pick a New One” screen:

Step 1: Name your habit by tapping the “Name” field and add a description, if necessary. Having typed the name, click “Done”.

Select an icon to be displayed along with it. To do that, choose an icon and its color to your liking among the suggested options.

You can also choose a notification sound for future reminders:

Step 2: Schedule your habit.

First of all, enable the “Repeat” option. It's a crucial point in differentiating between a one-time task and a repetitive habit.

After, choose a repetition interval (daily, weekly, monthly).

The "Daily" tab contains days of the week. By default, all the days are selected. In order to select just  the days you need, tap the round button with the first letter of the day.

*Note: the selected days shall be highlighted with color, as opposed to those left out.

The "Weekly" option allows choosing how many times a week you will complete a habit. Tap a number from "1" to "6", depending on your weekly goal. If you find out later that the selected number is too frequent for you, you may choose “once every two weeks” option below.

The "Monthly" option implies that you need to choose what time of the month is the best to complete a habit. You will be able to choose a specific date in the calendar.

Below you’ll find a helpful option ”Set end date”. Thanks to it you can now choose a day when you plan to complete your habit for the last time. Enable it and tap the "Today" button to open the calendar.

If needed, you can also set a daily goal for your activity. Please check out the "Goal" field and enable the option. You will be able to choose a number of times, and also a necessary category: time, min, glasses, pages and miles. Scroll the list up&down to select one.

You can choose a part of the day when you want to repeat your habit as well. By default, the system sets a random time ("Any time of the day"), but you may decide to do it in the morning, afternoon, evening. In our example, we've chosen the Afternoon.

Step 3: Create a reminder.

To create a reminder, proceed to the “Remind me at time” option. Turn on the toggle and set the time for a reminder’s notification to come.

You can also add a location that triggers your habit ("Remind me at location" option). Your current location will be suggested automatically, other place can be entered from the keyboard or you can drop a pin on the map. Choose either "On Arrival" or "At Departure" option, and press "Done" in the top right corner when finished.

Having set all the parameters, don't forget to save your habit. It will appear on the main app's screen straight away.

For example, you’ve chosen the "Trending habits". Tap it to see the whole list of the habits available.
