How about a "New Data" window where I can enter multiple goals at one time.
So I can just check in and enter data for as many goals as I like with one mouse click. Maybe keep the syntax used on the SMSbot (but I wouldn't have to create multiple texts). All these goals that I am tracking are eating into my day and I am just looking for shortcuts. This is a great idea and I'd give it more votes but I only have one left.

good god yes! how hard can it be to plug a spreadsheet style interface in to your data for the day!!! I can' t tell you how annoying it is to have to copy the data from my spreadsheet, where I actually keep track of all my data - into this web site.
Its all about the FRICTION people!

It's no longer as bad as Roland describes, now that we have the Quick Add box on the gallery page. I'm interested to know if people still want this!

Excellent suggestion for those of us that are tracking multiple goals! Now the sequence is
- click "goals"
- click the right goal
- click graph
- enter data
- wait for graph to update (not technically necessary but it is so cool!)
- close graph
- remember which chart is already updated
- click on next chart etc
This gets really tedious when you are managing 10+ goals. Current workaround is to open all charts in advance in separate tabs, and then to update them one by one. But having a single update page like HabitForge does would definitely be an improvement.
