☀️💧 Activity for all day - tracking water, laundry etc [Multiple activity]#43

I think it would be really cool if you could have an activity where it goes throughout the day and has multiple checks but is not at a certain time it just goes throughout the day. For instance for tracking the amount of water you drink and you check one off at a time but it doesn’t span from a certain time of day.

I’d love to have this. I do multiple loads of laundry in a day (bc I have a messy infant and a potty training todd) so it would be nice to have a “repeat” option that lets you hold multiple times a day

It would be great for all-day events from calendar apps to be imported this way too.

It’d be cool to include functionality for setting a frequency for the checkboxes too. The idea being that other activities that aren’t scheduled for a particular time bubble up to the top if you’re on track for completing your all-day activity by the end of the day, but when another checkbox (drink of water, load of laundry, etc.) is due the all-day activity bubbles back up to remind you.

Also, eventually, it’d be cool to upgrade this feature to tap into time-tracking to set the frequency of notifications/appearances in the right now tab based on how long a washer or dryer or dishwasher load takes or how often you want to drink water.

Allowing the time period to be shrunk down from a default of a day could be used to scale the total time during which the multiple tasks are scheduled which then could be divided into even intervals for notifications about each checklist item.

Another idea… You could make routines behave like this kind of activity by creating a sort of “hollow” activity or activity bucket to put between activities which would allow activities not in the routine to schedule/show up between activities in the routine. Completing normal activities would act like checking off checklist items. To help with repetition, a little counter on the routine to specify the number of times to repeat (and display) the activities inside would speed things up.

I don’t know if this is exactly the same as what is being suggested, but I forget to go back to the dryer or washer machine or whatever and don’t complete the task. A associated timer would be great so my laundry doesn’t get moldy

jesferr - for that what i do is i made a routine, i have it set to 5 min to gather clothes then 45 in the washer then 5 min to switch then an hour in the dryer then 30 to fold that way you get reminders when it’s time to switch them over and such and i have that repeat every sunday because that’s when i do the laundry so i never forget hope this helps

Merged schedule task for more than 1x daily#571

It would be helpful to just have and use reminders, things to do multiple times a day,
Right now I end up making a 24 hour long task every day as my daily reminders which works ok but it’s very glitchy when it crosses over to midnight.
