We've released a new version (1.1.0) of Habit Zap
, which is available online now. While the update includes many small enhancements, the two most significant features are the addition of Streaks
, and the ability for all free accounts
to save session logs online. The latter should be self-explanatory, so let's focus now on how Streaks work in Habit Zap.
In this initial rollout, Streaks are tracked at the level of each Activity List on a day to day basis, with respect to the time zone configured in the user account settings.
A banner will appear on the Reports and Activity List pages, showing how many days in a row you launched a session of any duration for a given list.
Streaks are intended to encourage daily attention to your activity lists.
If you use Habit Zap in a different way, or don't like the idea of streaks, you can simply click the "X" next to the Streak banner, and it will no longer show up. You can restore the banners by enabling them in the user account settings.
While Streaks are currently only shown at the level of the activity list, we're currently exploring additional features that would let you view session results in much greater detail (for example, streaks for individual activities within a list, streaks in the past, etc.) We are still trying to decide the best ways to present the data, in terms of the user experience of viewing and querying the session data, so if you have any suggestions or requests, feel free to let us know
