After having many of our users request this new feature, we are happy to say that you can now add a habit that will allow you to enter numbers instead of checks. We had great feedback from users telling us that not only did they want to track habits using checks, but sometimes they wanted to track actual values that they could enter each day.
No when you go to the habit screen, either by adding a new one or modifying an existing habit, you will see a new field “Type” – which you can use to set the type of habit you want:
If you select “Measurement” for the type of habit, then instead of being presented with 3 different checks for you choices, you will now see a text box which you can enter a numeric value into. These “numbers” can represent anything: weight, miles, calories, blog posts, anything you might want to track.
Just enter in the number and click “Save” (or hit the [enter] key). And of course you can still add notes to that particular habit for that day by click the image of the pencil on paper:
