Custom tags: habit-tracking features

Custom tags are amazing, however I often find that Exist lacks completion % tracking for custom tags, so I end up using Exist plus secondary habit-tracking apps. It’s a hassle for something you’re meant to reconcile every day before bed.

If I want to start a new habit such as ‘Fast until 12pm every day’, there is not currently a way to track the formation of this habit in terms of:

  • Specific days: I want to use this custom tag every M / W / F, what’s my completion % on this?

  • Streak: How many consecutive days did I tag this, related to my streak goal of XY days?

  • Longest streak with this tag: self-explanatory

So in summary, I don’t just want to use custom tags, I also need to track whether I used them or not and have some kind of completion metric.

Maybe a way to implement this is to make a module to create a new habit. Then in this new habit submodule, you can select the tags you want to relate to this new habit, and the days/times/rates at which you want to complete those tags.

    I had a suggestion that is a lot like this. It would be awesome to also have notifications and alerts if you’re not completing as scheduled to remind you.

    Also tying to other metrics as well.
