How to mark habits for previous days?

There is a possibility that you might forget to mark a habit, or task as “done”, or “skipped”, and thus distort your statistics. In order to prevent this from happening, you can change the status of the habits and tasks scheduled for all previous days.

Please, bear in mind that you can mark a habit either as "done", or "skipped" only for the days when it already existed. In other words, you can not add statistics gathered before you started using "Productive".  

However, you can mark the habits for all previous days after the habit was created.

For this, open the main screen and tap Stats in the left top corner.


You will be transferred to the Life log screen. Here, find the day when you forget to mark a habit, and tap it to open the habits scheduled on this exact date. E.g. On the February 13 we had to tidy the house, and we want mark this habit as "done". 


Now, when you close the Life log screen and re-open it you will see that the 13th of February is highlighted in the life log as a successful day and that the number of Total perfect days increased from 12 to 13.


You can also do the following:

  1. When on the main screen, tap one of the days at the bottom of the screen.
  2. You will be transferred to the screen of the chosen day, where all scheduled tasks and habits will be displayed.
  3. To change the status of a task or habit, tap it and either mark as “done”, or “skipped”.

To understand how it works, let’s see the example below

Say, today (Wednesday), you have time to mark your achievements for the previous days Saturday - S (1), and Tuesday - T (2).


On Saturday, according to the statistics, all scheduled tasks and habits were either marked as “skipped”, or ignored.

Once you tap the “S” icon, you will be transferred to the “Saturday” screen.

As you can see a “Call mom...” habit is active. Swipe it right to mark as “done”, or left to mark as “skipped”. In this example, we’ll change the status to “done”.


Now open the “Tuesday” screen.

Mark your habits as “done”, or “skipped”. In this example, we’ll change the status to “done”.


After your manipulations, go back to the main screen and check your new statistics.

Saturday - S (1), and Tuesday - T (2) are now marked in your statistics in a filled circle, in other words, as successfully completed.   



Your statistics have improved significantly. Keep on the good job!
