There are two pieces to this:
- safety buffer
Beeminder assumes you are capable of making progress everyday. The easiest
way around this is to keep adequate safety buffer. If you want to do one
feature per week, start out with a week of safety buffer and a rate of
1/week, and it will say you don’t have to make any progress for that first
week. When you do, you add a data point of 1, and then you have another
week to implement a feature.
If you have premium (I am unsure of what level is required) you can set a
goal custom, and once it’s custom, you can set it to be integery.
Intergery goals only accept data as whole numbers, but even when I set my
goals as intergery, I like to combine it with #1 above.
Do these sound like they could help?
