  1. Let me make pledges in my local currency

    International (Australian) user, wanting to avoid exposure to currency risk on my pledges :)
    It's pretty scary to see the effective value of your pledge go up by a big percentage over a couple of months!

    I remember seeing a comment on a blog post a while back to the effect that Stripe in-principle allows for charging in different currencies, so hopefully this is feasible?

  2. Allow adjustable start times for Zeno polling

    For goals which require bigger chunks of time to progress on, it might be useful to get warning messages 2/4/8/... days out.

    E.g. if my goal is "spend two hours a week meditating", and I've committed that all my sessions must be at least an hour, then on an emergency day I still need to find an entire hour spare rather than 2/7ths of one. Knowing that the deadline is coming a little further out would help me manage multiple time-intensive goals deadlining around the same time.

  3. Reward me if I Retroratchet!

    has been discussed here:
    http://forum.beeminder.com/t/giving-me-a-reward-to-motivate-me-to-retroratchet/744

    Briefly:
    Please give me some incentive to Retroratchet. Make me feel happy doing it. I cannot lose my efforts and throw it in the sea. I know the whole system is just a trick to my self to make me work and that is the point which is achieved by the current Retroratchet system. But that color trick works and makes me feel that the safe days are my bank account.

    I suggest to make a rewarding trick for Retroratchet. Let's say introduce another measure (other than the safe days and the graph), like let's…

  4. Store Safety Buffer

    This has been discussed in the forum here:
    http://forum.beeminder.com/t/feature-request-store-safety-buffer/227

    Briefly:
    What would be super cool is if i could "store" my safety buffer for a goal and only apply it if i need it. It's not being akratic because i had earned those days before.

  5. Make dashboard more task focused

    Currently there's a lot of screen space devoted to showing who I'm logged-in as on the dashboard ("Your Goals") page. I know who I am, so that's not useful information to me. I'm there to (1) enter data and (2) check for goals that need work. The (2) part is pretty well covered, but data entry is shoved down on one side. I'd rather have it up at the top like an "omni-bar" with auto-focus, so that I can update my most urgent goal without even clicking.

  7. 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.

  8. Allow for write-protected comments or other arbitrary data

    1)Having write-protected comments would allow for a more robust hackery, such as an improved Must-Do list.

    2)Being allowed to attach arbitrary data to a goal would allow for even more interesting hackery.

  9. Responsive design to be mobile friendly.

    Currently if I am on a smaller form factor device such as my phone. I either have to zoom to see anything and drag around, or if my OS happens to have an app for it I can download it. Two problems with this. First is new mobile platforms are unsupported (I work on the Firefox OS project) the second is that the barrier to entry for using the site is a lot higher on mobile, I have to go find your app in the app store then download it, then I can start doing things.

  10. Include the goal description, entry units & fine print in the mobile app

    Please make the units and fine-print for each goal easily viewable from the goal entry page.

    I primarily use Beeminder via Android Mobile App. I've established some very specific rules for myself for many of my goals in the fine print. Unfortunately I can't read the fine print for my goals on the Android app, so I sometimes have to guess as to whether or not something qualifies.

    For example, I have a goal that requires I complete two pomodoros per per week on a specific project - but because I want to encourage myself to only work on it…

  11. allow a way to change to auto-generated if you started out manual

    I started a new goal yesterday and didn't realize that I needed to set it up from the partner apps in Fitbit until after I got it set up. Now I cannot see a way to change it.

  12. show +value in the android widget instead of day count for red / yellow / blue goals

    So in this image http://imgur.com/Gr6TUqm instead of
    ce 1d
    I'd see
    ce +0.87

    My use case: I already know how many days left I have (because of the color), what I don't know is how much I need to do (which is the thing I want to be able to pick up at a glance).

    Like for one particular goal, I have it set to 8/week, so the one day a week where I have to do it twice tends to come as a bit of a surprise. And there's a big difference between having to run half a mile…

    I suggest you sell Prepaid Cards so people with no credit card can have a way to pay you through Pay-pal and cash.

  14. Allow exporting of purple average line points

    Just like we can with our datapoints, being able to export the average would be nice as a lot of people consider it the "true" value of e.g. their weight

  15. Allow a "calories consumed" goal integrated with FitBit, LoseIt or MyFitnessPal

    There currently only appears to be a total net calories through FitBit. I track my food intake there, but not activity since my Fitbit flex broke. Or at least have some calorie-counting site that can be integrated.

  16. How do I delete my account?

    I signed up for several goal management sites to see which one suited my needs best. I've chosen a different site for its journalling focus, but I can't seem to find where I delete this account? I hate cyber-clutter!

  19. Add widget code to handle cases where iframes don't work.

    wordpress.com blogs can't have iframes and I imagine that isn't the only place on the web. Would be nice to have the code provided that does basically <a href="link to graph"><img src="link to graph image"></a></img> (which is what I did for my blog post: http://blog.wraithan.net/2015/01/13/beeminding-zenircbot-3-0/ )

    Even better would be if the url took parameters to tell it the size of graph to make (with obvious limits) so I can make a widget that fits nicely in a side bar of any width. Or make them a bit smaller to have two side by side in a post without making…

  20. Android App - Option to leave screen on when the timer is running

    Have an option to leave the screen on if the timer is on. Consider making this dependent on being plugged into power.
