What's the difference between the goal types?

Each of the six goal types works slightly differently from the other five, and each is best suited to a particular objective and requires data being entered a certain way. Bee Plus and Beemium subscribers also have access to custom goals, which enable more settings for user configuration and let you create very specific beehavior.

  • Do More: something I want to do more of, where you enter today's amount, like “times I go to the gym”
  • Do Less: something I want to do less of, where you enter today's amount, like “number of chicken nuggets eaten“
  • Odometer: something I want to have more of, where you enter a running total amount, like “pages of War and Peace I have read so far”
  • Whittle Down: something I want to have less of, where you enter a running total amount, like “emails currently in my inbox flagged as urgent”
  • Lose Weight: track your weight, which you want to decrease
  • Gain Weight: track your weight, which you want to increase
  • Custom: you can switch all the settings yourself and create crazy mashups of the other 6 goal types

Each goal type is described in much more detail on the linked pages!
