Feature request: pause derail reminders for a goal you know will derail

I just derailed on a goal last night; I knew I was going to do it, I did it consciously. So is there a way (next time) to pause the reminders that I’m going to derail? I appreciate that if I didn’t realise, being reminded a lot is good, but if I’m doing it consciously, it doesn’t feel great to be nagged all the time:
B:“hey, you’re falling off this goal in 6 hours”
Me:“yes, I know, I’d rather not be reminded of my failure”
B:“but hey, in case you didn’t know, you’re failing in 5 hours!”
Me: “yes, thank you - again”
B: “Only 4 hours to go before you fail!”
Me: “yeah. And thank you so much for bringing up such a painful subject. Perhaps while you’re at it you could give me a nice paper cut and pour lemon juice on it?” (with apologies to Miracle Max)

A way to pause the reminders might be nice :slight_smile:
And this seems such an obvious feature I’m sure you’ve had it requested before and it’s either too hard or way down the queue. But it still might be nice.


Indeed, this is a very old feature request. Search for “Cry Uncle” in the forums if you want to know more.

I think a workaround used to be to put a -1 datapoint yesterday, which will immediately derail you, then remove that datapoint. I don’t know if it still works, though.


Ah, as expected this isn’t a new request - thanks for @phi pointing me at the other threads that request this feature.

And @eugeniobruno, I shall try that next time I’m in need of it - perhaps not soon, but I’m bound to end up here again one day.
