Quite a few times I stumble upon someone’s goal and think “man that is a nice goal, I like that, I should copy this!” but then don’t because I am highly acratic.
I’d like to be able to copy existing users’ goals and make them my own. Especially given the recent rise of journals and the within there linked goals I think this would be a lovely addition that fits well into the “we like you to have your goals public” philosophy.
Of course this needs some thought regarding what details to share exactly because privacy and data protection but I am gonna leave that for someone else to figure out. Spontaneous ideas include sending them a mail “$user likes your goal and would like to copy it. That ok?” Which would probably be the easiest. Or some checkbox in the settings “allow this goal to be copied. Note: this may expose more information about the goal than what can be viewed publicly already” or something in that ballpark. Or make them all copyable / shareable by default and make it opt-out. Or make public share links that people would need to click to copy the goal.
- Yes! I always wanted that!
- Nah, I only ever cared about my own goals.
