Hey @Perfectionist, hey @Quin
I really appreciate that we’re having a discussion around this.
I can totally understand that the streak feature is important for many users, and that’s why I want to be very clear that my request is not either-or. What I’m requesting is that I can have more control in the settings over what I personally want to display in the Journal view on my phone.
For me, the ability to reflect the period of day is nowhere near the same as being able to see the specific time that I’m due to complete a task. I really appreciate being able to gauge where I’m at in the context of all of my habits at any given point in the day and how much time I have until the next one, rather than waiting for the notification to remind me. Call me a sucker but I’m attached to the clock! As a parallel, I’m a teacher and for my teaching schedule, I don’t just vaguely know each day ‘ok, I have 3 lessons in the morning’; I like to be able to visually see the times of my teaching periods each day. Yes, I could memorise them, as I could do with all of my habits; I just really appreciate the visual reminder.
Using the suggested option of looking at the time in ‘Settings > Manage Habits’ not only entails 2 extra clicks each time I use the app but also means I have to be faced with the red remove symbol each time. The whole screen has the feel of an editing space (which it is) rather than something I want to access each day.
I still really appreciate the functionality of being able to select the specific time of day and receive reminders at specific times. This is the single feature that I can see that sets this app apart from the competition (of course the design is beautiful too ). I’m just sad and disappointed that I can no longer see the time on the main Journal screen, and I would really love the option to have this feature again.
Since my main request seems to be around more user control, it would also be nice to be able to toggle what order the items are displayed on the Progress screen.
Thanks a lot for all of your hard work, and for listening to my concerns. ^^ ~
