    Multiple entries per day would be ideal.

    yes, like mood, tracking energy levels and putting that against other factors in Exist would be amazing.

    I never know what to write down as my mood. Breaking it up might help to get more meaningful data.

    This would be great

    While you’re waiting, you can already track related qualitative measures like “low energy”, “tired”, “stressed” etc with new custom tracking: https://exist.io/blog/introducing-custom-tracking/

    The main problem with energy levels is that they are hourly, instead of daily, and that would mean a different type of way to register.

    I have more energy in the morning, a slump in energy after lunch, and a spike right before dinner

    Very True. I really wish Exist allowed for hourly entries. I’m sure that would require a lot of changes. However, I think that if they allow users to enter hourly measurements and simply average out the multiple entries that would result in a more accurate energy level measurement. Please implement

    We’re not looking to make these large architectural changes any time soon. Users overwhelmingly voted against this option in the survey.

    Trying to understand what determines my different levels of energy in the evening is a key thing I am using Exist for. Using the custom tags only allows two states (‘tired’ tag and no tag), whereas having different energy levels would enable it to be more sophisticated - I have at least three different levels.

    I think there’s a feature suggestion for assigning a metric to a tag (for medication dosage) which would give us a scale to work with for energy.

    I would definitely like a way to track energy as I’m pretty sure it has a complex relationship to many things that I would like to suss out.

    Right, if we did get to manual tracking first, you could use that for energy level rather than it being a separate feature.

    This would be super-useful for me. Right now what I’m most interested in tracking for myself is the combo of mood+energy, 3x day. I’ll have to hack it via custom tags for now but it sure would be nice to have it baked in.
