Rebuilt and reimagined – the new Lifetick

August 4th, 2012 by Tim Wilson 4 Comments

Hi Lifetickers,

Today we officially launch the new version of Lifetick. Some of you may have already tried it out, and others using an iPad would have already seen it.

Access to the new version

  • From today, all new users will default straight in to the new version, and existing users will receive a prompt after logging in as to which version they wish to use.
  • The Flash version will still be around for the short term, but we will not be adding any new features to it. Therefore we recommend that you move to the new version straight away. Once you are comfortable with the new version, simply click the link at the of the application to bypass the selection screen the next time you log in.

What has changed

Apart from a refinement across the entire application, here are the most significant changes to functionality:

  • The options to switch between Goals and Dreams has moved to the top right of the screen
  • Completed goals is now in the new reports section
  • Journal categories have been renamed ‘Trackers’
  • Trackers now have a ‘cumulative’ or ‘static’ reporting option – so you don’t have to select this each time you run a report. You will be prompted to set this value the first time you run a report on these trackers.
  • The add task entry has moved to a new popover panel accessible by clicking the ‘Add task’ button on the top left of the goals window.
  • A new way of entering recurring tasks, hopefully making it easier and faster to creating recurring tasks.
  • Redesigned widgets
What’s new
  • New reports view – goal and task reporting along with Journal and Tracker reporting for paid users. Also includes CSV output. This replaces the journal category reporting functionality.
  • New widgets – including ‘Notes’, ‘Recently missed tasks’ and additional counters
  • New Tracker type of Yes/No
  • Journal ‘activity’ view. See all your journal entries in one view, much more exciting than the week to week view!
  • Journal ‘upcoming’ view. See all the due goals and tasks coming up next.
  • You can now print your journal (You can still print reports, goals and your navigate view by either using the print buttons provided or simply hitting print in your browser window)
  • An option to stop overdue task email reminders (Click on your account link on the top right of the application, and select preferences on the left).

There are many more changes and new features, but the best way to find them is to simply explore the application. If you have any questions or problems with the new application, simply click the ‘feedback’ button in the bottom right of the application.

We hope you enjoy the new Lifetick.

    Thanks for the effort you have put into keeping Lifetick user friendly. The only glaring omission is the lack of a monthly view in the journal category. This is huge for me because I can see my entire monthly progress on the screen in a quick view format. Any chance that this will be included? Thank you.

    @Sheldon, Thanks for the feedback. We may consider bringing the month view back in a future version. The more feedback we get on a feature, the more likely we are to consider adding it.

    Hi,

    I’m not sure if this is happening to other users but for some reason no matter how many times I click on the option to make this new version my default one. It´s not working.

    I also have the problem that after selecting the ‘Goals’ option in my login, I’m always asked my user and pwd again. It’s not a big deal, but it’s annoying sometimes.

    Hope something can be done about this.
