Introducing HabitScore™ Charts

May 7, 2014 by James Tauber

One of Habitualist's strengths has long been the calculation of the HabitScore™, a measure of how habitual you are being with an action. Now we're providing historical charts of your HabitScore™ for each action.


Introducing Tags

July 6, 2013 by James Tauber

Habitualist now lets you add tags to your actions and then filter your dashboard by tag. One great use for this is filtering your actions by context. Just want to see your work actions? Or just the actions to do at the gym? Just add a tag and filter as appropriate.


User Profile: Cecilia Saia

Oct. 31, 2012 by James Tauber

This is the first of a series of profiles we're doing on some of the people that use Habitualist to track their actions and build habits. Kicking off this series is Cecilia Saia.


Showing Day Progress

Sept. 18, 2012 by James Tauber

To help better visualize progress through your actions for the day, we've introduced the Day Progress bar on the dashboard.


Reminders via Twitter DM

Sept. 7, 2012 by James Tauber

One feature we snuck in just before launch is the ability to send reminders via Twitter Direct Message.

Introducing HabitScore™

June 25, 2012 by James Tauber

In the last few weeks, we've introduced a number of exciting new features to Habitualist including a uniquely-formulated score for each action as well as your actions overall.


Improved Streaks Display

June 19, 2012 by James Tauber

We recently improved the way streaks are displayed in Habitualist.


Now versus Today

May 23, 2012 by James Tauber

Habitualist suggests how important an action is to do now as well as how important it is to do today. The two can be quite different.


Configuring Which Day The Week Starts On

May 12, 2012 by James Tauber

Although historically, Sunday was the first day of the week in many calendars, the majority of people outside North America treat Monday as the start of a new week. Habitualist now lets you configure your preference.


Tracking Less Frequent Tasks

April 18, 2012 by James Tauber

While the primary purpose of Habitualist is to help you track the actions you want to take to build habits, it’s also a great tool for remembering to perform tasks that only need to be done every few months.


Deleting, Pausing, Archiving or Starting Over

April 12, 2012 by James Tauber

Habitualist lets you delete, pause or archive your actions. If you're overwhelmed by a sea of red, you can also restart an action.


When A Week is Not Seven Days

March 12, 2012 by James Tauber

Setting an action to be done “once every week” is not the same as “once every seven days” in Habitualist. Understanding how the two differ will help you configure your actions more powerfully.


Variable Recurrence: Not an "Every Day" Feature

March 5, 2012 by James Tauber

One core feature of Habitualist is the ability to track tasks that have a variable recurrence. While most to-do-list software supports recurring tasks like “floss every day”, most fail at targets like “go to the gym three times a week” or “blog every 2–4 days”. This is where Habitualist shines.


Habitualist is Finally in Private Beta

Feb. 28, 2012 by James Tauber

After floating around as a concept and prototype for a number of years, Habitualist is in private beta and hundreds of people have started using it to track their recurring activities.


Habitualist is a great way of tracking the things you want to do on a regular basis, the things you want to turn into habits.
