Creating a Milestone
Milestones allow users to track and receive encouragement for important dates or events. Users can use this feature to track their progress privately or share it with others in their community.
To access the the milestones go to menu > my profile > add date to track progress. Users will see the following:
- Milestone - We have provided two types of milestones. Recovery and Healing. This allows the user to choose the language that best suits them and their own personal journey.
- Date - Select the date that your recovery or healing began. Your milestone will be posted and celebrated on minor/major milestones along your journey. You can see those milestone anniversaries here.
- Make Public? - Here users can choose if others on the app can see and celebrate their milestone. If they choose for their milestone to be public, it will be displayed on their profile and in the stream for other users to provide encouragement or celebrate their accomplishments. If they choose for their profile to be private, they will receive a congratulatory notification, but other users won't be notified of the milestone date.
*Note: Recovery birthdays are acknowledged at minor and major milestones along the recovery journey.
*Note: Recovery birthdays are calculated by counting the days between recovery date, up to but not including the current day. For example, if a user's recovery date is 4/1/18 and today is 4/1/19, their recovery counter will show 1 year, not 1 year and 1 day.
