Getting Started with Coach.me
Setting up your habits
You can browse sub-categories or select habits directly from the list. Here, we'll scroll down and choose "Exercise"—a basic habit with lots of other participants, and lots of available coaches. Choosing popular habits is a good way to ensure you'll have plenty of opportunity to harness the power of the community in reaching your goals. You'll see the goal detail screen for your habit; if it looks good, tap "Join" to add it to your dashboard.
- Get Props
Here's where you can set privacy on this habit. Turning on privacy will hide your choice of this habit, and any check-ins and notes for it, from other users. Note, however, that if you post anything in the Q&A for this habit, your posts will be public, so someone could deduce that you are participating in it.
- Set a Weekly Target
There are some habits you might want to do less than 7 days a week. Here's where you can set your goal for the number of times a week you intend to complete it.
- Get Reminded:
Set reminders for when you'd like to get an email or device reminder for this habit.
- Hire a coach
Here's where you can find coaches to help you stay accountable and reach success with your goals.
That's the basics of using Coach.me: just add your habits and then begin checking in on them daily. There's lots of other features: the Q&A, activity feeds where you can check in on your friends' progress and cheer them on, and the most powerful feature of all: private coaching.
