Feature request: a general Take a Break feature that the user enters once and Beeminder propagates to all their goals, WHICH ALSO supercedes the max safety buffer setting. (That is, if you’re in a break period, Beeminder ignores the max safety buffer setting until the break is over.)
Motivation: if you have more than a couple of goals, it’s a real pain to have to enter in a break for each one of them (if you get sick, say, or go on vacation).
Why this feature would be good: the painfulness of hand-entering a break for each goal has at least a couple of akratic downsides.
- It’s tempting to add fake data points to get through the break period, because that’s much less painful
- The pain adversely interacts with trimming safety buffer (“I’d like to make sure I do these sixteen goals at least every three days, but I don’t want to derail if I get sick”)
