Create a tracker

Trackers are custom, measurable items you can record in your journal so that you can track progress and report on it along the way. Trackers can be financial (such as measuring savings), numerical (such as measuring weight or distance), text based (such as recording books you have read) or binary (for counting gym visits).

To configure and then record your Tracker, go to the Journal screen and click on the “Configure trackers” button.

Lifetick is setup with several default trackers to provide you with examples of how they can be moved. You can use or delete these. To add a new one, click ‘Add tracker’.

Select an icon and type the name of your tracker.

Select the type of tracker it is and click ‘Save’.

Your tracker is now created and will appear in the list of available trackers.

Note: You can change the name and icon of your tracker, but not the type. If this is required, you will need to delete it and create a new one.

Note: For other tracker types such as financial you will need to enter additional configuration. For example: for a financial tracker you will need to add a currency.

For numerical trackers you will need to provide the units of measurement. For example: creating a tracker for weight will require you to enter kilograms) kgs or pounds (lbs) or another variant.

Note: The reporting selection at the bottom. ‘Cumulative’ will add the tracker entries for the reports whereas ‘Static’ will average the trackers in the reports.

You are now ready to start recording entries for your tracker.
