Every Habit, Daily, and To-Do has an Advanced Options section when in edit mode. Although using the Advanced Options can be helpful, it is not absolutely necessary to use them. Since Advanced Options are task specific, when a player edits the Advanced Options of a task, only the single task being edited is affected.
Finding Advanced OptionsEdit
By default, the Advanced Options appear automatically when a player edits a task. A player can change their Settings (click the "site" under Settings) if they want this section to start collapsed when editing a task (check the "Advanced Options in tasks start collapsed" option in the menu). If a player makes this selection, they can still view the Advanced Options by clicking on the link in the task menu.
Some tasks aren't as hard as others. It takes a lot more effort to write an essay than to brush your teeth. To acknowledge this, all tasks have a difficulty setting, which can be trivial, easy, medium, and hard. New tasks are automatically set to easy. When a task is accomplished, the reward will be based on its difficulty setting. Refer to the difficulty page for more information.
The Attributes will appear only if the player has selected task-based auto-allocation as the method for assigning points to character attributes. Details on how points are allocated to attributes based on these settings can be found here.
Task Alias Assignation

The task alias field is intended for use with some third-party integrations. See the Task Alias page for details. If you do not use integrations that utilize this field, adding a task alias will have no effect.
Start Date and RepeatEdit
For Dailies, you can enter a future date at which you want the Daily to become active. You can also choose to have the Daily repeat on certain days or every x days.
Using the Advanced Options section, players can change the streak count of a Daily. This setting is extremely useful when a player completes a task but forgets to check off its Daily. Although the Daily's streak count will automatically reset to zero, the player can manually restore the streak to maintain accuracy - as well as the player's motivation.
Counter Reset FrequencyEdit
The Advanced Options section for Habits allows players to choose how often the habit counter resets to zero. The counter may be configured to reset every day, week, or month. The default reset frequency is daily (at the player's Cron), but for some Habits a player may find it useful to extend the counter interval.
