    Like custom tracking, this one requires architectural rejiggering and so while it will happen because we want to do it, it’s still a while off.

    This would be very, very useful.

    very important, key moments are:

    after wake-up before lunch mid afternoon after work before sleep

    would not track more than 2 at a time, depending on the intended outcome I’d choose the timeslot

    I agree that this is useful, and I would add that it would be useful to keep a separate “overall” category to rate a day, and then have separate ratings by moment. For example, I noticed that the things that happen towards the end of the day tend to have a large influence on the overall day rating that I do at night. Further, research shows that the morning mood is an important factor in productivity: it would be nice to see if this is true for individual users.

    i like the idea of some “default” time of days but with customization options

    This idea is actually how I found Exist… because I wanted a way to track my mood over time, with tags. Particularly, I would like to record how I’m feeling at the beginning of each day, because I think there will be some important trends in that data, related to motivation and mental health — eg. “what gets you out of bed in the morning?”. Also, I have a hypothesis about “Monday Morning” syndrome that I’d like to test.

    I’ll vote for this as well. I’m using a standalone app called iMoodJournal to bug me thrice a day for my mood. Being able to have one app for everything is better, in my book.

    I manually track mental health and physical health - I know this is beyond the scope of this consideration, but I’m just throwing it out there as an idea.

    I am a nutritionist and it is important for me to track what my patients are experiencing multiple times during the day to understand what triggers their food choices

    I would also like a larger scale (1-10 if possible) as many of the other mood apps use

    Changing the mood scale would be a big hassle, probably disproportionate to the benefit received. There are pros and cons to both approaches but we value the simplicity of 1-5.

    I really need a lifestyle/health tracking app that measures my moods at various times of the day. My mood affects and is affected by sleep, work, exercise, food, social activity, etc. And I’d like to suggest a compromise on the mood scale. I agree with Joan’s comment on June 29 that a larger scale would be very useful. Those 1-5 things are almost useless for someone seriously trying to track their moods. But if 1-10 is a big hassle, could you make it 1-7? From my experience, that would help quite a bit.

    Any change to the scale would be the same amount of hassle 😊
