Read on for some ideas for using Habitica as a comprehensive planner or a central hub for your schedule, projects, and tasks. 

Like other organization systems or software, Habitica does not provide every feature that might be needed for every organization task. In particular, it is not appropriate for calendar-based tasks, tasks with complex hierarchies or dependencies between items, or tasks that involve coordinating multiple contributors. However, there are still ways to meet other needs right within Habitica:

Combined ApproachEdit

Planner

An example that follows the combined approach

Scheduled events and actions can be entered as items in the Habits list.

Tasks that repeat monthly, such as specific bills, can be entered as Habits or as To-Dos in a monthly challenge

Dated actions and events can be entered as To-Dos. One's regular schedule items can be entered as Dailies. Unscheduled tasks can be listed either by priority above or below the schedule or in between by order of completion.

Side-by-Side CalendarEdit

Browser CalendarEdit

To view Habitica tasks alongside a calendar, install a browser add-on, such as the Chrome extension Google Calendar (by Google) or the Integrated Google Calendar for Firefox. Alternatively, use a split browser extension, and display a web calendar in one pane and Habitica in the other. Firefox allows you to set a bookmark to load in the sidebar. Windows users (with Windows 7 or newer) can achieve a side-by-side split window by having the tabs of their browser open in different windows, and dragging the windows to opposite side of the screen one at a time.

ProjectsEdit

Projects

Example methods of tracking time. The first example is a To-Do, the second is a Daily and the last three are Habits.

Tracking simple projects in Habitica:
  • Add a unit of time, a step, milestone, and/or next action for each project to Habitica. In this case, the sub-steps would be tracked elsewhere. This works well for moving forward projects that are difficult to break down into steps (e.g. writing and revising a book) or contain multiple repeated actions.
    • Daily: work on Project X 1 hour
    • Habit: work on Project Y 2 hours
    • Habit: next step in Project Z
    • Habit: one document for Prepare Documents for Client Q
    • To-Do: Take Car to Garage (next action) for project Road Trip to Alaska
  • See more ideas in GTD with Habitica
  • Checklists can also be used to keep track of steps toward a larger goal, and if it's particularly complicated, a checklist with headings and sub-checklists as different to-dos can be used.

FiltersEdit

If you're putting most or all of your tasks into Habitica, tags and tag filters can be a big help. For example, active or urgent tags can be used to filter out tentative and on-hold items. You can also use tags to separate different projects.

Additional ResourcesEdit

    • This feature has been requested, and there is a bounty on it! You can make comments and/or add to the bounty there. You can also make comments on the Trello card. Or, if you're handy with code, implement the feature and claim the bounty!
  • Habitica Integration: Habitica has begun implementing integration with other apps and sites, so there's an increasing chance of finding the feature you need in another app.
