Has anyone found a good way to beemind things you only want to do on the weekends? Right now there’s a simple way to beemind things you don’t want to worry about on the weekends, but not the reverse that I know of. Is there a solution?
No, which is something I really wish we had You can do some clunky stuff w/IFTTT, but it involves dummy data and is whatever the opposite of elegant is.
Assuming you want to track the number of hours spent on the thing, can you do something with tracking the hours you spend on OTHER activities? I guess you’d need to do that in a do-less goal, with the rate and starting buffer set so that you could enter 24 hours for the first few days until the first weekend arrives.
waves hands vaguely
If I were doing it, I’d create a do-more goal with a zero rate for recording the time spent on the actual thing and then do something with integromat / ifttt / etc to automatically copy the data to the do-less goal.
“tangle” because it’s an almost-semiordnilap of “elegant”
I’m not sure I understand what you mean, but it sounds like there might be something there.
It’s weird to me that beeminder doesn’t have a way to choose the days of the week you want to do the habit. That’s pretty standard for any habit tracker.
It’s a real hassle to basically set up any goal that needs to be on a specific day of the week, you have to do the math right!
Does anyone know if that’s in the pipeline?
