WHAT CAN I DO HERE?

The Health + Goals topic is ideal for man­ag­ing your goals and visu­al­iz­ing the results for health, fit­ness, busi­ness, or well being. You may wish to man­age your life or busi­ness goals, such as “Buy a House,” “Fin­ish a Triathlon,” or “Exceed Last Quarter’s Sales by 10%.” Or, you might be a busi­ness per­son or small busi­ness owner (such as a per­sonal trainer) who wants to man­age met­rics for their clients or employ­ees. This is pre­cisely what Health + Goals allows you to do — set goals and see the progress in a graph­i­cal for­mat for one or more per­sons. When you define your goals in your LightAr­row app, you can record all the activ­i­ties that need to be com­pleted in order to reach those goals through tasks. In addi­tion, you can add items such as notes or files as ref­er­ence mate­r­ial; pho­tos or videos of progress; expenses, such as for class instruc­tion; and shop­ping items, such as equip­ment that’s necessary.

You may also wish to main­tain a solid under­stand­ing of your health; stay focused on your exer­cise and nutri­tion goals; as well as track gen­eral activ­i­ties. Your app pro­vides you with a sin­gle source for record­ing all your health, fit­ness, and life goals; 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.

Your app pro­vides robust log­ging capa­bil­i­ties so you can track your goal met­rics, 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 you can enter asso­ci­ated tasks, shop­ping items, and providers and that infor­ma­tion will show up auto­mat­i­cally in the Tasks + Projects and Peo­ple + Ser­vices topics.

GLOSSARY OF TERMS

Goals: Goals are items you wish to reach, such as buy­ing a new house, los­ing 10 pounds, get­ting in shape, or learn­ing a new skill. You can log met­rics for goals and view your progress in a graph­i­cal format.

Goal Log Items: These are the user-defined met­rics that you assign to goals (such as sales goals, weight, height, etc.)

Log Form: These forms allow you to record entries for items in a log. For exam­ple, you can track your weight, exer­cise, blood pres­sure, or other statistics.

Multi-Topic Log Form: These forms allow you to record entries for items in more than one log. For exam­ple, you can track your weight and your exer­cise in the same log form. This allows the infor­ma­tion that you log to be graphed together so that you can more eas­ily see any cor­re­la­tion or trends that might exist.

Health Projects: Health-related work items that you wish to accom­plish. Los­ing some weight, train­ing for a triathlon, and hav­ing your hip replaced are all exam­ples of health projects.

Health­care Providers: Com­pa­nies, orga­ni­za­tions, or indi­vid­u­als from whom you receive health-related prod­ucts or labor. Your den­tist, doc­tor, and local hos­pi­tal are all exam­ples of health­care providers.

Health Ser­vices: Health-related prod­ucts or labor you receive from com­pa­nies, orga­ni­za­tions, or indi­vid­u­als. An annual phys­i­cal from your doc­tor and your mem­ber­ship at the local gym are exam­ples of health services.

TOUCHPOINTS

Touch­points allow rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion to be shared seam­lessly between Health + Goals,  the Tasks + Projects, and Peo­ple + Ser­vices top­ics. For exam­ple, imag­ine you have a goal to get in shape. You can define the goal in Health + Goals, com­plete with all rel­e­vant infor­ma­tion such as appoint­ments, reminders, tasks to sign up for a gym mem­ber­ship and to buy healthy food, the shop­ping list of the food to buy, book­marks to your favorite exer­cise web sites, and so on, and that infor­ma­tion will auto­mat­i­cally show up in Tasks + Projects. Or, you could iden­tify an entry in your device’s Con­tacts as your pri­mary care physi­cian either from Health Projects in Health + Goals or from Ser­vice Providers in Peo­ple + Ser­vices. You can then access this infor­ma­tion from either place.

CATEGORIES FOR HEALTHGOALS

Cat­e­gories are avail­able for use with Health + Goals. You can cre­ate, mod­ify, hide, or delete cat­e­gories via Set­tings or directly from a tile for a Health Project, Ser­vice, or Ser­vice Provider. When a cat­e­gory is deleted, it is com­pletely removed from your app. When a cat­e­gory is hid­den, it no longer appears in the Cat­e­gories tile, but it remains defined, and is still avail­able in the cat­e­gory list when you are defin­ing a new Health Project, Ser­vice, or Ser­vice Provider. Note that cat­e­gories that are in use or serve as touch­points to another topic can­not be deleted or hid­den. For infor­ma­tion about cre­at­ing cat­e­gories, refer to your help for Man­age Cat­e­gories.

ALERTS

Alerts dis­play at the top of the Health + Goals view for any­thing related to health projects and health services/service providers that are due within the next five days or cur­rently over­due. For exam­ple, if you’ve set a reminder to set up a yearly phys­i­cal, an alert shows.

MANAGING GOALS (GOALS VIEW)

From the Health + Goals topic, there are sev­eral aspects of goals that you can man­age.

    Hi,
    I found your prod­uct yes­ter­day and I am so pleased (though my head is reel­ing a bit, try­ing to sort out all the func­tion­al­i­ties!). There’s one that seems as if it should be doable but I can’t fig­ure it out. Is there a way of link­ing some of the pre exist­ing health logs to the goals sec­tion?. Specif­i­cally, I am train­ing for a race and would like to only enter miles run in one place. I can’t seem to link the pre exist­ing run­ning log or my weight log to the goal. Do I have to set up sep­a­rate “goal logs” for this? Thanks for the help.

      Hi Audrey,

      Thank you for reach­ing out to us, and for your kind words.

      As you have pointed out, our app cur­rently sup­ports adding only new log items to goals.
      We will look into sup­port­ing the abil­ity to add exist­ing log items to a goal in a future update.

      Please note that all the indi­vid­ual log items cur­rently sup­port a tar­get (goal) value. Goals were designed for slightly dif­fer­ent pur­pose. How­ever, it now makes sense for sup­port­ing pre-existing log items.

      Should you have any fur­ther ques­tions or sug­ges­tions, do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us again.

      Best Regards,
      Team LightAr­row

    First off I’d like to say THANK YOU! My search is Finally over! Thanks for putting out such a fan­tas­tic per­sonal orga­ni­za­tion app, the thought and detail that have gone into this is truly amazing.

    Sec­ondlY, I also a fea­ture request — I would really like the abil­ity to run reports. for exam­ple, say I’ve been track­ing my wellness,logging when I have back pain, etc. At some point I have a doc­tor appoint­ment… I would love to be able to run a report on all my well­ness logs and export it out to some­thing ( like PDF or CSV/excel, and a print out ) file so I can take this with me to the doc­tor so she could look for trends or progress. I would def­i­nitely pay extra as an in-app pur­chase fea­ture for this. Same with the projects, the abil­ity to run a report and print it out and/or export the tasks and due dates to a csv file would be awe­some, and again I would gladly pay extra for this feature.

    Thanks again for all your great work! I keep find more and more fea­tures within the app as I look around!

      Hi Colleen,

      Thank you very much for the kind words and for reach­ing out to us.

      We are cur­rently look­ing in to improv­ing the report­ing capa­bil­i­ties of our apps in var­i­ous areas, espe­cially in the Health + Goals and Projects + Tasks areas.

      It is pos­si­ble to track and view your activ­i­ties in a graph­i­cal man­ner (using Plots or Bar Charts or Line Graphs). You can either see them all plot­ted together in one chart/graph in the log form view or plot­ted indi­vid­u­ally as sep­a­rate graphs (in the indi­vid­ual health metrics).

      Also, you can export all of your indi­vid­ual log entries for each of the met­rics (for e.g.., “Pain : Back­ache” under “Well­ness logs”) to a CSV file using the fol­low­ing steps: My Top­ics –> Health + Goals –> Well­ness –> Pain: Back­ache –> Con­fig­ure –> Export.

      Note that you can also export all tasks in a Project/Trip/Event, etc. in to a CSV file.
      Assum­ing you have the lat­est ver­sion of Life­Topix, go to the Project/Trip/Event detail view and tap on the “Actions” but­ton (the last but­ton in the row of but­tons near the top) and select Export.

      Should you have any fur­ther ques­tions, do not hes­i­tate to con­tact us again.
