Feature request here: metagoals or complex goals. That is, being able to pull data out of beeminder for a goal or do math with incoming data. The specific case I’m thinking of is my “writing” goal. I need to do 100 words/day - that’s great. The problem is when I get in the zone and pump out 1000 words - sweet! But then I have over a week of buffer, and lose motivation to work on it. What I really want is (on top of the 100 words/day) is something like (4 days a week, write 100 or more words). So being able to pull data out of beeminder or maybe being able to adjust a goal so it gives a point if (incoming value for day > 100) or something?
I guess it’s kinda similar to Feature Request: single datasource, multiple goals but not quite.
You can probably get pretty close with IFTTT. I do this for quite a few goals, blogging, Pocket, weight…
IFTTT doesn’t seem to work - I can only do an “IF” on whether a datapoint was added to a goal at all. Draftin adds data everyday, regardless of if I did any writing (that is, if I didn’t write, it adds a datapoint of 0). I need to trigger IFTTT only if a day’s data is >100.
Do you know if there’s a way to get more accurate/discerning IFs?
The first goal is more-or-less what I want, but I’d like it to be automated. I already manually port google fit data across, I’d really rather not have to check each day my word count on beeminder, then add a point if it was over 100. That’s the kind of stuff computers should do for us.
Is there a way to automate this?
The second idea doesn’t feel quite right; it’s one goal tracking two separate goals, I feel. I might give it a shot, thanks.
