How do the stats work on HabitCal?

Hi Reinhard!

I didn't have a brilliant April - but I love HabitCal. However, I couldn't figure out how the stats were worked out - can you explain? I can't figure it out!

43.3% success
30% weekends
16.7% special
10% failure
0% no data

overall score 71.5%

hello? anybody there?

I'm guessing this forum is farther down than most people regularly scroll

Oh goodness, let me see if I can remember this...

Ah, it's actually hiding on the main habitcal page

The formula (a bit crude) is:

green / (( green + red ) - ( special percent exceeding 7%))

So a perfect score for a period would be no red days, and no more than 7% of days in the period being non-weekend "special" days (0-2 a month).

Where it breaks down is if your regular S days aren't Saturday and Sunday.

Does this make sense?

Glad you like the habitcal!

Ah! Thanks Reinhard - and for pointing me back to the HabitCal page - I never go farther than just checking my boxes for the day! I didn't realise there was all that information down there! I need to think about it a bit before I can tell you whether it makes sense to me! It WORKS, that's the main thing. :D
