At last, we have just released a big and an important update. We have implemented a feature that was missing from the beginning but which is essential for goals achievement — social functions. Now, you can get a help from your friends or members of the 42goals community to motivate you. Let’s start digging into the new features!
The first feature is a public profile. This is an exhibition page of your achievements. You can put here charts depicting your current progress on the goals you have set. Here is my page:
Reduced amount of caffeine consumption? Lost couple of pounds? Send a link of to your friends and impress them with your progress. Your public page is easily customizable. You can modify your charts and change the parameters you want.
For now, you can set up to 3 charts, but we will change that soon. You will be able to add more charts as well as to change the whole layout.
Let your friends to help you stay motivated
You public page has three tabs. The first one “Profile” is pointing to your charts. In the second one “Goals”, you can share your goals. To make them public click on edit icon
And voilà! Your friends now can see your goals and will help you to stay motivated.
Share your experience
The third tab “Posts” is where you can share your experience with your friends and the community. You made a progress this week? Write a small post, maybe it will be useful for your friends and might also help you to stay focused.
Signing in with Twitter and Facebook
Everyone now has an account at Twitter or/and Facebook (tell me who doesn’t?). But not everyone has an account at 42goals (at least not yet). To make it possible for your friends to cheer you on 42goals, we added sign in support for Twitter and Facebook users. With a single click they will become members of the community without any need to fill registration forms.
Well, actually two clicks:
We promise not to post anything on your wall without your permission, we just need some basic info perform the authorization process.
We have updates the visualization library, so the charts have a cleaner look.
While these were mostly cosmetic changes, we are preparing something cool in a next release (does a word “correlation” tells you anything? *wink*)
Bug fixes and etc.
- Fixed sorting goals
- Fixed wrong counting of monthly values
- Fixed wrong data aggregation when building charts
- Performance enhancements
