How Do Negative Tasks Work?
Negative tasks work differently to regular tasks, as they start each day as complete. If you do nothing with them, they will stay complete and your streak will continue. If you do the thing you’re trying to avoid, long press to mark it as missed. Since you may want to reduce the number of times you’re doing something (for example, you’ve decided it’s okay to smoke 3 times, but not 4 times), then you can set the task accordingly. In this example, you would set the task to 4 times per day. Then, if you smoke, mark the task as missed and it will fill one segment. The task only fully misses once all 4 segments are full.
Sort Tasks
There are two ways to sort your tasks: 1. Tap the Settings icon, then you can long press and drag your tasks to move them within the current page. 2. To move tasks to another page, tap the Settings icon, then tap the “6 dots with arrow” icon on the Settings toolbar.
What Is The ★ Next To The Streak Number?
This indicates that your current streak is also your best for that task. Similarly, a half-filled star means you are one day from reaching your best streak.
What Is The ● Above The Task Icon?
This indicates that if you miss the task today, your streak will be broken. This is only shown for tasks that are set to "number of times week". Also, timed tasks have a similar indicator to count the seconds while the timer is enabled.
