How to Vervo?
How do I create a goal?
To create a goal, tap the red button in the bottom bar.
This will take you to a wizard where you fill in the following information:
- - Your goal title
- - deadline date (optional)
- - background color of your goal
- - Selecting at least 3 inspirational photos
- - Goal reminder to help you stay on track
What are friends in Vervo?
You become a friend of another user when you join their goal.
Also, a user becomes your friend if they join your goal.
You'll be able to see your friend's goals in your Home screen when you tap on the 'Friends' tab in the top bar.
Whats the differnce between PRIVATE, FRIENDS ONLY, and PUBLIC goals?
- PRIVATE: is you choose to create a private goal. No one else, including your friends, would be able to browse/see your goal.
However, you can still exciplicitly invite users of your choice to join your goal. To do so, tap the 'Invite' button inside your goal and send an invite to one or more users.
- FRIENDS ONLY: when you create a 'Friends Only' goal, only yourself and your friends can see your goals.
Vervo establishes a friendship between you and other users that join your goal(s).
- PUBLIC: all of the Vervo community can see and join you goal.
What's the differnce between a goal and a routine?
A Goal is a short or long term objective to achieve. An example of a goal would be
Pay off your credit cards. The completion of a goal might require journaling your daily progress through Diaries,
adding a one-time todos through Tasks, or through getting inspiration through adding photos to your Inspiration Board.
A Routine on the other hand is part of your goal(s). A routine is a daily task which you must do to progress and eventually accomplish your goal.
In the same example, you can setup a new routine to save up $5/day to help you pay off your credit cards.
What are 'STREAKS' in routines?
When you log in your daily count (by tapping on your routine), Vervo calculates your streaks.
A Streak defines the length of time (in days) that you have successfully stayed on your routine.
There are two types of streaks in Vervo:
- Current Streak: this calculates the total days that you have stayed on your routine up to today.
- Longest Streak: this tells you the longest period that you have managed to stay on top of your routine.
To view your current/longest streaks, tap on the 'Calendar' icon on your routine
What is the 'LEADER BOARD' feature in routines?
Vervo added a Leader Board feature to add a fun way to increase competition in your routines.
Say you have yourself, and two of your friends in the same goal, following the same routine. The leader board keeps
tabs on who managed to consequetively log their daily counts in that routine.
Vervo sends a notification to all users in your goal once the leader board changes or selected for the first time.
To view the leader board, then tap on the 'Calendar' icon on your routine,
tap 'View Leader board' button
Why did my routine turn RED?
If you have chosen a 'STOP' type of routine, then you have to define your daily max as part of the routine creation wizard.
For example, if you are trying to quit smoking, then you create a 'QUIT SMOKING' routine and choose a 'STOP' option,
and define a daily max for cigarettes as 3.
When you start logging your daily cigaretters smokes, your routine would turn RED
if you smoke and log more than 3 cigaretters
Give me an example of a goal with routines?
Here is an example of a goal we all share here at Vervo. We created a 'Self Care' goal, where we keep track of our daily health.
As part of this goal, we have defined the following routines:
- Go to the gym at 5 PM
- Drink 2 litters of water
- Meditate for 10 minutes
We currently compete on who can have the longest streak across all of the above routines.
