Choose all the items on the list that you want to work on for your tasks and then press "Let's start" to begin your journey.
You will now be guided through the short introduction to Habits and what they are. Depending on the items you have selected to work on, it generates a quick list of sample commands that you can view, which they call "Habits." These are meant to be examples, but if one of them meets your needs, you can keep them. You generally wipe them out and start again with your own habits.
Tap a habit that you want to delete, and then click & # 39; Delete & # 39; and finally on & # 39; Delete Task & # 39; to wipe it off your list. Do this for all pre-generated habits that you do not want to keep, so that you have a clean slate for your own tasks.
From here you can start adding your own user-defined habits by pressing the plus sign button at the bottom of the screen. This is a one-time task that only needs to be completed once. Give your quest a title of any kind and add specific comments about the quest if necessary. Be creative and think of some cool search names from your favorite games to motivate you even more.
Now decide whether this habit has positive or negative traits that can be assigned to it. For example, if you might miss the task in some way or not, it must have both positive and negative characteristics. This ensures that you can receive rewards for completing the task or be punished for failing. You can then choose the difficulty level for the habit and then select how often it will be reset.
Now click on "Create" to complete the process. Start by adding a handful of basic tasks until you have completed the rest of the installation. Also, do not perform any of your tasks because you have not yet set up your reward system with custom actions. Once you get to know everything, you can come back and dive the details of the nitty-gritty with even more main tasks to take care of.
Tap the tab Dailies below, you will get a basic tutorial of what this function is. These are tasks that you would do every day, such as washing dishes. As with the main tasks from the Habits section, some basic tasks are generated here based on what you have previously chosen. If you want to delete them and start again, select the item and press & # 39; Delete & # 39; just like before.
Now you can tap the plus button and start setting up a handful of daily tasks that you want to add to your list. . Just like before, try to be creative with your titles and descriptions to make you smile every time for more motivation. Works every time, trust me. With Dailies you have a few more options to set up than with the main tasks from the Habits.
If you want, you can add a checklist to your specific job or task if it involves more than one thing. Tap the text box and type everything you want here, and it will be automatically saved in the list. You can rearrange the list order by tapping and dragging the six-dot icon on the right. You can also delete each item by tapping the "X".
Select the level of difficulty of this specific task and then choose the planning system for it. Enter your start date and then choose how often you want to complete the task. If you select "Daily", you can decide how many days to wait until you receive the search for completion again. The same applies to the other time options, so go with what works for your personal tasks.
If you really want to make sure you never forget to complete your daily tasks, you can also set a reminder to alert you. You choose what time you want to be reminded and it will certainly let you know when it is time to complete that task. You can also add any desired tag as your list grows over time. Press "Create" to complete the process.
If you have a specific task list for the day that is different from the other two list options, you can use the "Tasks" tab. First of all, a to-do list consists of one-off tasks that usually have to be completed at a specific time and date. Consider habits as your main story missions, newspapers as your required daily tasks and tasks as the side missions that appear randomly as time goes on.
Delete all items in the pre-generated list and tap the plus button to begin. When creating a task list item, it follows almost exactly the same layout as the newspapers. Continue and give your task a title and add any comments that may be useful to you. Make the checklist, set the level of difficulty, plan an expiration date and then set any reminders. You can also add tags here.
Once your task list is set up and ready to be saved, tap "Create" to complete the process. You will now see the checklist of items that you have created and you can tap each box once the tasks have been completed. Once all items on the list have been completed, your search is complete and you can receive every reward you have set. Again, do not start performing tasks until your reward system is set up.
Finally you can proceed to the reward system that is used when you complete your missions! As you complete your chores and tasks, you get a certain amount of gold to spend on rewards for yourself. By default you can purchase equipment that you can use to build and strengthen your character. Basic weapons, armor and potions are available to help you start your journey.
The real pleasure comes from making your own set of rewards and setting how much gold each value is worth. There must be a predefined reward item with the label & # 39; Reward yourself & # 39 ;. If you tap on that item, you can make your first adjusted reward and get the good things.
Add a title to your item with reward items and add any comments that might be useful here. Under & # 39; Costs & # 39; you can choose how much gold is needed to buy this reward. Don't set it too low or too high, but you may have to play with this number and find a comfortable amount for future use. You do not want to flow through the reward system, so it is essential to find a perfect balance.
If you are satisfied with the name of the reward, the notes and the gold costs, tap "Create" to complete the process. When you win enough gold by completing your customized missions and tasks, you can tap the gold icon on the right to buy the reward. That's all there is!
You must now go back and start building of your assignment lists and add even more rewards. Once you have built up a fair number of tasks and rewards based on your own life, it is safe to tackle your missions one by one. Do your best to finish them on time and try not to cheat! Cheating does nothing for your own self-confidence and only hurts your personal development.
Once you have completed a task in your list, tap the plus icon to complete it and get some experience points and gold. If you have missed the deadline or have not completed a specific task, tap the minus sign to confirm the failed search. You lose a certain amount of HP when you fail a quest, so keep that in mind. Try to complete them as much as possible to stay alive!
