I suggest you ...

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

  1. Make the graph scalable.

    With 30 datapoints its no big deal, but I have looking at lots of stuff here and when there is years of data on a graph, it gets pretty cluttered and difficult to see where you are in relation to the road. Only relevant for relatively long term goals or recording I guess, but some that have been around a while are tough to see.

      Working on this! And we should emphasize that the specific problem is now solved (see x-min etc in graph settings) but it will be much nicer when you can just pan and zoom visually.

    • "Weekend Off" Targets

      It's already been brought up that an option to schedule flat or altered rate days would help with planning vacations and weekends off.

      In the meantime, here's an idea:
      - Give us an option in the "advanced" tab that allows us to specify something like "[ ] This is a weekday-only goal" OR
      - This goal applies only on [ ] Mon, [ ] Tues, [ ] Wed......

      - Then either:

      a) have two sets of numbers that show our minimum to the bottom, centre, top of the road, and make the second set reflect... (below) OR
      b) replace the…

          • Allow users to organize Goals in different folders like: "Studies" "Health," "Hobbies" etc.

            Could there be folders for certain goals so I can keep them all straight? I'd like a "Health" folder where I could log workouts, odometer readings, macronutrients splits eaten over the week, etc. A "Study" folder to keep track of the time spent on school, and a "Hobbies" folder so I could track things like time spent on reading outside of class, practicing an instrument, or time spent other self improvement goals.

              “Started” may be an exaggeration but this no longer seems hard and is bubbling to the top of the list of priorities…

              Rough sketch of the plan: Put the countdown to next derailment next to or in place of the “bob is minding” heading, which avoids the problem of someone accidentally burying an eep goal. And then kill frontburner/backburnering. And then add tags and sorting by whatever you like — tag, time-to-derailment, pledge, goalname. For tags you could specify in the url, like bmndr.com/bob/tag/foo (same as the blog).

                    • You've added some good mouseovers, how about putting some on the graphs

                      Like each datapoint, pink line, maybe the CL of your road - just date & value as you did on the data. On the graph I don't need to know how I entered it, but it would be good to take the guess out of where is the center of my YBR.

                        That’s a really good idea!

                        (The way we’re generating the graph images currently makes that easier said than done, so this might be a while, but we agree it’s worth doing.)

                      • landing page for logged in users

                        Right now if you go to http://beeminder.com as a logged in user you still see the standard landing page with sign-up/login calls to action. IMO It would be much better if a logged in user was redirected to their dashboard.

                        • Allow single number replies to BeeBot

                          When the BeeBot queries me it asks for a reply in the form of goalname dayofmonth datapoint. It seems to make sense that the default reply should simply be: datapoint. In this case the default value for goalname would be the goal that triggered the BeeBot query, and the default value for dayofmonth would be today.

                                  • Seinfeld Chain Indicator

                                    Get some sort of visual feedback when you have an unbroken chain of daily data entries.

                                    If you break the chain the indication is removed and the graph reverts to standard layout. This way the feature would function as an extra layer of motivation via gamification.

                                    The feedback could consist of a band of color and/or a text-box with number of days with unbroken chain.

                                      If I succeed, then I had the option of allowing friends and loved ones to watch me do it. If I fail, they get to laugh at me, leaving even more reason to succeed.

                                        Sharing is pretty huge, but can you say what exactly you mean by “a secure way”? Do you need a way to guarantee that only specific people see your graph, and that those people would have to have beeminder accounts themselves (to ensure you’re sharing with only those you intend)? If you just give the URL of your graph to those you want to share your goal with, that may be the best of all worlds, unless you’re super paranoid about the URL falling into the wrong hands. That’s our own philosophy, anyway. Others may have different privacy needs so we’re eager to hear more feedback on this.

                                        I want to make sure I'm reading a certain number of pages a week, but I don't want to double-enter my data (I know I won't actually do it), especially since GoodReads just needs 'what page are you on?' whereas 'how many pages did you read today?' requires math. I'd love to have my GoodReads data show up here!

                                        • Have an option to specify "time-tracking" goals, for which data points and "bare min" numbers will be displayed in x:xx format

                                          I have many goals tracking the amount of time I spend on a certain task or activity. It's super great that I can enter data in h:mm or m:ss format, but I'd like to be able to see my entered data and "bare min" counters in that format as well. For example, right now the goal page might say something like +0.66 to get back on the road; I have to open up a calculator and multiply by 60 to see that means 40 minutes. I want beeminder to do this multiplication for me. =)

                                          The idea would be to…
