  1. Update graphs faster

    It's taking sometimes a good minute or more to re-draw a graph after adding data. This is quite annoying, as part of the joys of using Beeminder is the immediate feedback of seeing your progress.

    • Add support for zeroing out one's pocket list.

      I use http://getpocket.com to remember to read stuff after work... and most of the time I forget. It would be nice to a have a zero goal like the one for email.

      • More services / apps to link to : ENDOMONDO

        More services / apps to link to : ENDOMONDO - Most of my training is recorded at ENDOMONDO. When will BeeMinder be able to link into this app for stats?

          • Command Center!

            So, I currently have six goals, and I have to constantly keep clicking between them to enter and edit data as a I go through my day. It would be really awesome to have a view where I can say, have my goals (perhaps without graphs) laid out in a simple grid arrangement, colored according to my position on the various roads, and then below each section an area to enter new and edit the last few entered data for each one. That way I can see how everything is doing and *add and edit* the data for my life…

            • Add "minimum road width" to custom goal settings

              I want to beemind goals where spikes occur less frequently than 10% of the time.

              Sample data series for a goal where the target value is greater than the starting value.

              .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .2 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 -4 .1 3 1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1 .1

              For this goal, I would want the center line of the road to be the straight-line…

              • Integrate with Google keep

                Google keep is another lightweight todo list manager where you create checklists and check them off. One simple integration might be to count the number of google keep lists (perhaps filtered by tag) that are completed.

                • Allow me to upload a motivational image to show up on my goal URL.

                  I want to get back to my thinner body. When I add data and see my updated graph, I would like the added boost of seeing a visual of what I'm working towards (an uploaded photo of a thin body that I am working to become.)

                  The image won't mess with my graph; it will only be visible next to my data history (the white box with lines that say 8 26 "comment", etc.), not on the graph itself.

                  This should be optional of course! But think about the endgame YOU'RE working towards (a fit body, smoke-free lungs, a finished…

                  • Choose if imported values overwrite existing values.

                    I notice that after importing some data, existing data for the same days were not replaced, instead I now have multiple values for the same day. That may be desirable , but maybe not. An option to replace existing values, ignore new duplicates, or keep all, would help.

                    • Enable sorting of history, buy any column.

                      I'm not sure what the ordering logic is for the historical data, but it would be useful to be able to choose how to order it; by data or value, ascending/descending.

                      • change SMS data entry to recognize other quote marks

                        The quote marks my phone makes aren't valid, currently, for including a note with my data-- data entry has to be in the format
                        Goal date datapoint "notes"

                        But my phone can't make the straight double quote marks which are recognized by the beeminder computer; when I try to use the quotation marks available on my phone, I get, "We didn't understand this row".

                        I want to be able to include notes when adding data as a text from my phone.

                        • Statistics: Correct the average rate

                          if you hover over "CUR RATE" on the graph you see the average rate. Daniel has confirmed that the code is old and the average rate is not correct and has said "I need to improve the statistics like this, and put them in a better place than mouseovers!"

                            • Update the default day

                              Currently, if I open a goal's page on June N, and leave it open in my browser until June N+1, and then I go to enter June N+1's information, I have to notice that the default day is wrong and I need to change it. It seems like it should update automatically so I don't have to pay attention to it.

                                Or, make the feedback button not float? I mean, have you seriously ever tried zooming in on a beeminder page in a mobile browser? That button fills up half the screen when you zoom in on anything. and people who want to leave feedback will find the link.

                                • change Duolingo reminders

                                  I was on Duolingo this morning (at about 8:30 EST). Duolingo updated Beeminder automatically at 9:31 (not sure time zone). At 9:40am EST I get a reminder email to go to Duolingo, which tells me in the body of the message that I already hit my target today. Could the reminders only send out if data hasn't already happened, especially for the automatic trackers like Duolingo? I like the reminder, but a reminder so soon after hitting target is just junk mail.

                                  • Allow historical data to show on the graph when connecting to services like Fitbit.

                                    I've connected Beeminder to my Fitbit account and am experimenting with tracking a few things. One behaviour is frustrating though: • Beeminder imports historical data from Fitbit (I'm not sure whether it's all data or just a fixed prior period as I've not had my Fitbit for more than 10 days)
                                    • But… the graph begins only the day before

                                    Since the data has been imported, I would like it to show on the graph, thus providing me with some visual "momentum". Else, why bother importing it?

                                    Of course, if *all* historical data is imported and someone has been using a service…

                                    • Allow cloning of goals

                                      I find myself un-checking a lot of "contact me on Mon, Tue, ..." boxes for each new goal when I either will be entering data rarely (weekly) or feel that I will remember to enter my data without reminders.

                                      It would be nice to allow an existing goal to be cloned, carrying over everything except the data points.

                                      (URLs and names would need to be de-duped somehow.. e.g. the time-honored tradition of "Copy of $original_name".)

                                      • Description on goal page more prominent

                                        It's difficult to find where this is (some users don't know it exists: http://beeminder.uservoice.com/forums/3011-general/suggestions/3675852-have-the-goal-description-on-the-goal-page). Why not make it a subtitle in a larger font below the goal name? This usually conveys more useful info than the goal name, if it exists.

                                        • Differentiate derailment from completion

                                          On the goal page, add some sort of indicator to make it understood whether the "Until derailment" time is until you LOSE or until you COMPLETE the goal.

                                          This becomes a problem sometimes if you're trying to build a buffer on a 'do more' goal and every day the buffer gets smaller because you forgot that your completion date is closer than the buffer time.
