Health + Goals

Opti­mize your suc­cess and well being with the Health + Goals self-tracking topic.

Track­ing your goals, health, activ­i­ties and fit­ness pushes you to stay focused on your per­sonal, busi­ness and fit­ness goals. Self-tracking helps you to know what is work­ing, and it also helps you to decide when to adjust your plan.

The Health + Activ­ity topic pro­vides you with a sin­gle source for record­ing all your goals, health, fit­ness and well­ness stats. Track any user-defined goal, such as “Improve Sales by 20%” or “Run a Marathon,” and log mul­ti­ple items for it. Keep track of health sta­tis­tics such as weight, blood pres­sure, cho­les­terol, blood sugar and body fat; your med­ica­tions and pre­scrip­tions; and your health his­tory such as pro­ce­dures, treat­ments and well­ness. Robust log­ging capa­bil­i­ties track your food and drink intake, your work­out activ­i­ties, your insur­ance providers and reg­u­lar health check­ups. Use­ful charts with met­rics let you see trends and view progress.

Smart inte­gra­tion with other top­ics means that as you are enter­ing infor­ma­tion for a health pro­ce­dure, for exam­ple, you can enter asso­ci­ated tasks, shop­ping items and providers, and that infor­ma­tion will show up auto­mat­i­cally in the Tasks + Projects and Peo­ple + Ser­vices topics.

This topic is included in Life­Topix and is avail­able as an in-app-purchase in My.Agenda.

    Hi guys,

    It’s me again :-) . My love for the app keeps grow­ing and the videos have been great to let me start expand­ing into more func­tions offered with con­fi­dence. With my health I use My Fit­ness Pal to track my meals, calo­ries, nutri­ents, etc. and I was won­der­ing if you have any plans to allow some­thing like that to feed into Life­Topix. Just a thought and fig­ured I’d share the idea in case it hadn’t been thought if yet.

    Thanks again for the won­der­ful app, the fea­tures and func­tion­al­ity that is con­stantly expand­ing and for the excep­tional support!

    Have a great day,
    Paul

      Hi Paul,
      Thanks again — as always, for the pos­i­tive energy and vert use­ful thoughts!
      We do plan to allow ways to bring in exer­cise and nutri­tion info from 3d party apps, as well as fur­ther improve our own built in track­ing of such info.
      We are look­ing at sev­eral ser­vices that allow for 3rd party apps like ours to inte­grate with them. We’ll inves­ti­gate MyFit­ness­Pal to see if it’s pos­si­ble to get that data in.
      On going inte­gra­tions with pop­u­lar ser­vices is a key part of our approach.
      Best regards,

    How can a back up be gen­er­ated? Noth­ing worse than find­ing all your plans have gone up in smoke because someone’s com­puter isn’t work­ing. I would not want to have to re enter it, so a print copy while help­ful to carry for the day or week, is not a suf­fi­cient backup, as it would require re entry.

    Can my fit­bit and life-topix talk to each other? at the bar min­i­mum is there an http://ifttt.com/ recipe I can use?

      Hi Joanna,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us with your question.

      Cur­rently we sup­port CSV import for log items and other things. In the future we will be enhanc­ing the abil­ity to import things into Life­Topix via email, Twit­ter and other auto­mated means. We will look at IFTTT to see what sce­nar­ios would be possible.

    Hi guys! I love the new fea­tures you’ve been adding! I won­dered if there were any plans to include a table or chart view? I’d love to be able to see in a visual way, the days I’ve taken what med­ica­tion cross-referenced with say the days where I have episodes. That would pro­vide really impor­tant infor­ma­tion. Also, I can’t seem to find a way to pull up a monthly list which shows how often I’ve taken a med­ica­tion. So if I don’t take some­thing daily, but want to know how often this month I did take it, I can’t really seem to find a view where I can see that. Thanks again!

      Hi Net­jera,
      Thanks so much!
      If you cre­ate a cross-topic form (at the top level in Health + Activ­ity, you can add log items from across the top­ics (med­ica­tion items, well­ness items, nutri­tion items, etc), you can have both items in the same chart (line, plot, or bar). Also, if you make the sum­mary type of a log item to be monthly total (or weekly total), then we think you’ll get so see what you are look­ing for. So if you took a cer­tain med­i­cine 24 times dur­ing a month (skipped a day here and there), the total lets you know it month by month (24 in Jul, 27 in Aug, 21 in Sep, etc).
      We hope that helps!
      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow

    Uh oh, I’m baaaa-aaaack.…

    Two things, some­what related. I love using Health + Activ­i­ties to track my day. I like that it shows up in my cal­en­dar. (Plus the met­rics too, those are nice.) What I would really love to see in List View in Health + Activ­i­ties is a sub­ti­tle under each entry that has, say, the first line or first few words of the note for that entry. 

    When I record my piano prac­tice time, I list the book I prac­ticed out of in the notes, but the only way to see it in List View is to click each entry. Being able to see those first few words with­out that extra click would be awesome. 

    The other thing is maybe it could carry over into the Cal­en­der entries too. Even if it were only three words of the begin­ning of the note it would be use­ful. Per­haps it could be optional. 

    Just a wish I had. Thanks for listening!

      Hi James,
      These are great sug­ges­tions! Thanks again for help­ing us improve Life­Topix.
      The first sug­ges­tion is very straight­for­ward (adding the com­ment as a sum­mary line in the list view of log entries), so we are going to include that in 5.0, which we are wrap­ping up for sub­mit­ting to the App Store for review at the end of July with an expected avail­abil­ity to users in early-August. We’ll try to get the note into the My Cal­en­dar view as well.
      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow

    Hi, I was try­ing to get my well­ness log forms in Quick Access, the option appears, but when I click it, the log form entry doesn’t appear under Quick Access. Help please. This would be very use­ful to me, espe­cially if you make it so a user can choose to see his topix first or his dash­board. I would defi­nately choose dash­board first when the app opens. Have y’all ever thought of doing a swipe down ges­ture for the Cal­en­dar? Or even swip­ing to side like the oth­ers. I’d love that.

      Hi James,

      Thanks very much for your question.

      You’re right — you should be able to add log forms to Quick Access. This will be cor­rected in release 4.2 which is cur­rently under development.

      Thanks!
      Team LightArrow.

    It would be nice to be able to lock topix like health and notes with­out hav­ing to lock the whole app. Espe­cially if we could choose which to use, a pin code or longer pass­word. What do you think, doable?


    • LifeTopix Support

      Hi James,

      That is an inter­est­ing idea, and we like it. We’re always in favor of ways to make the prod­uct more secure and usable for our users.

      To answer your ques­tion: although it will require more inves­ti­ga­tion, our ini­tial thought is that this should indeed be doable. Of course, your idea of being able to do pass­code lock­ing at the topic level is more doable than, say, pro­vid­ing that abil­ity down to a deeper level (e.g., per note or per health log, etc.).

      We will add this as a user request for a future release. Thanks very much for the input!

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow.

    Hey guys,
    When I was at the doc­tor the other day what I real­ized was miss­ing was a way to see mul­ti­ple things I track all on one cal­en­dar. While it’s true that log forms can get you part of the way there, none of the views really made it easy to see the over all pic­ture includ­ing the days I didn’t have an episode. A cal­en­dar offers a sim­pli­fied view of the days you were ill and the days not. In the list view it just skips those days noth­ing was entered. And the graphs com­pli­cated things because I track dif­fer­ent symp­toms in dif­fer­ent ways (times, pain 1–10, etc.). Maybe I’m being picky, but I think there might be a way to do it that would be helpful.

      Hi James,

      We agree. One of the new fea­tures in 4.0 is the abil­ity to view Health + Activ­ity met­ric log entries in My Cal­en­dar, along with Fil­ter options to include/not include those. We think this will give you what you are seeking.

      Wit that in 4.0, if you are at the doc­tor and just want to see only your Health Stats in a cal­en­dar view, you can go to My Cal­en­dar and turn off all Fil­ter options except Health Stats. In a future release, we plan to give you a way to do this even more eas­ily with some­thing like a cal­en­dar icon from the met­ric list view.

      Best regards,
      Team LightArrow.
