It’s finally here!

I get a few emails every day asking to be able to track goals that have steps along the way. It’s one of the original Accompl.sh features that hadn’t made it into the new version yet because I wanted to make sure it was done right.

And now it’s done! Starting today you can add a progress bar to any of your goals.

If you’d like to add a progress bar to any of your existing goals, just head to that goal page and click “Add a progress bar.” It’s that simple.

Head on over and give it a try.

As always, I’d love your feedback!

Introducing the NEW Accompl.sh!

I’ve been locked away for these last few weeks (months?) giving Accompl.sh a MAJOR overhaul and it’s ready to be unleashed to the world!

Ready?

Here goes:

Bye, bye locking! The idea of locking your list was a remnant from when I first built the site as a tool for my own new years resolutions. It’s a great exercise, but as time went on I realized it was preventing us from reaching our goals over the course of the year instead of giving us the tools we need to be more awesome. I’m relieved to say, locking is gone and you can start working on your goals the second you add them!

Lists for the super-organized: Now that locking is gone, lists kind of became unnecessary. So they’re gone too! Well, not completely gone… if you’re a little OCD about your goals (I know I am!), you can still organize them into lists with a PLUS account. If you had multiple lists from Accompl.sh Credits, you’ll be grandfathered into the new system.

Goals for all! All goals on Accompl.sh have been public by default from the very beginning. Sharing your goals and getting them out into the world is proven to increase your chances of achieving them. With that in mind, I’ve made the option to make your goals private into a PLUS feature. Again, if you had private goals before, you’re grandfathered in.

PLUS is even better! With all of these new changes, PLUS got a major facelift. PLUS members can have private goals, organize your goals into lists, and set shorter deadlines for your goals, and more! Go on and upgrade!

The list goes on and on… I could keep going, but I won’t! You’ll just have to dive in and try it for yourself! 

As you can tell, the main objective in this overhaul is to remove the barriers and fluff between you and reaching your goals. As always, I can’t wait to hear your thoughts / feedback. If there are bugs, you can report them on our GetSatisfaction page.

To being more awesome, one goal at a time!

Introducing: Visual Lists

Today I’m excited to unveil something that I’ve been working on behind the scenes for a while now: Visual Lists!

Visual Lists are a great new way to show off your goals. They strip away all of the extra details that are probably only interesting to you (and maybe your mom) and show off your goals in a whole new way. Have a look:

With Visual Lists everyone can get a quick idea of where your goals stand without having to read every single line of your list. Each block leads right to your goal page where your supporters can get the full scoop on that goal.

You can get to the Visual List for any public list by clicking this new button on the list page:


A List with Personality

There’s one more awesome thing about Visual Lists: They’re customizable! PLUS members have access to a widget that will let you set your list’s colors to suit your fancy.

If you’re not a PLUS member, now’s the perfect time to upgrade! And don’t forget: For the month of March, if 10 of your friends join Accompl.sh using your personal link, you’ll get 1 year of PLUS for FREE! Details here.




Visual Lists are available RIGHT NOW! Head over to your list page to get started!

With A Little Help From Your (Facebook) Friends

Sometimes you just need a little help from your friends to make progress on your goals. Maybe you have need a running partner? Or maybe you need some help learning how to use that new camera? Now you can ask for help from specific friends on Facebook!

You can post to your friends’ wall by heading to your goal page and clicking the Share With Friends button.

Pick your friends and click the Post button!

And ta-da! Your request will be waiting for your friend on their wall!

(p.s. credit to PatDoesIt for tweeting a request for this button to @accomplsh!)

Pin Your Favorite Goals!

With everyone raving about and obsessing over Pinterest (myself included!), it felt like Accompl.sh was being left out of all the fun!

Not anymore!

Starting RIGHT NOW you can pin your favorite goals to Pinterest! Just click the “Pin It” button on any public goal on the site (You’ll find the button on the goal page where you add comments, etc.):

That’ll let you share your favorite goals with your friends on Pinterest (and Facebook and Twitter if that’s your style!)

And because every goal on the site is its own unique little snowflake, so are the goals that you share to Pinterest: the colors will change to make your boards nice and bright!

As always, private goals are safe from being shared.

Since this is just an experiment I put together in a few hours, if you guys like it, I’ll spend more time allowing you to customize the appearance of your goals when they’re shared!

So go forth and Pin! And let me know what you think in the comments below!

(P.S. - need a Pinterest invite? Email jenn {at} accompl.sh and I’ll try to get one sent out to you ASAP!)
