My Sparksummary Calendar


Members Were Sparked
This Sparked Me!

I was just told about this feature and it rocks. It tracks your daily calories, fitness minutes & SparkPoints. You can look back at a week or a month and see how you made out. You get gold stars on the days you made your calorie target. Now I want to count gold stars and maybe make them a goal!

From your start page it is on the left, below "My Goals" and it's in a big white box. How could I miss it?

    I never saw it either. Boy where have I been!Thanks for the info..
MYRA61 3/13/2015 11:03:00 AM

    Oh wow! I never saw this! When I got to the page that has this on it, I found even more! The Single Day Calorie Differential Report is certainly motivating! Thank you so much!
JANROLG 12/5/2014 5:51:00 AM

    I think I see where it is, but only see for one day. How can you see additional days or a month?
SVHETTENBACH 11/25/2014 1:25:00 PM

    Thanks for all the comments - I think I'll try this
JAB2010 7/4/2014 8:39:00 AM

    Thank so much. I've been a member for years and never found it. I found it under Reports, not on my Start Page. Can I add a short cut so it shows up on my Start page?
PRICHETTO 4/24/2014 12:50:00 PM

    My Sparksummary Calendar is now found in the Reports section and a very helpful feature to monitor calories eaten and fitness minutes. A place for notes and appointments too. Very nice, SP! Woohoo!
AOIFEH1 7/29/2013 4:01:00 AM

    How odd I miss this. Thank you so much

EBETHET 2/26/2013 10:00:00 AM

    Thank you for this. It must have been a new feature at some time that I missed.
LAURIEKRGR 2/5/2013 1:59:00 PM

FREIDASTUPKA 1/11/2013 9:34:00 AM

    I had found it but am ashamed to say, forgot how to get there? It is an awesome feature.
HI-NRG 11/30/2012 8:12:00 AM

    Wow, This is cool. Been here awhile and didn't know it existed. Thank you
DALMOM2007 10/25/2012 7:32:00 AM

    This is fantastic. I've been looking for something like this for a month now. Thank you for pointing it out...can't believe I didn't see it.
PUGGYBUG 10/22/2012 7:28:00 AM

    How is it that so many people have missed this feature? Thank you for posting about this. I am anxious to explore this feature! emoticon
SPARKKAT 10/16/2012 11:00:00 AM

    LOL - I never tried it either. LOVE it! Thanks!
LEASIM1231 10/3/2012 5:23:00 AM

    Thanks for posting this! I just went and saw that I need more gold stars!
ELLENOR9 9/29/2012 2:26:00 AM

    Hey Thanks, this is awesome. Think it will be so useful emoticon
SPARKSUE1985 8/31/2012 8:19:00 AM

    Thanks for this - it's amazing how, after several years now, I'm still finding good stuff on SP that I hadn't noticed before - thanks for pointing this out
EASYRIDER1983 3/5/2011 10:14:00 AM

    I've been a member for a few years and I've never used this. I love it! Now I want a week of solid stars! I wonder why it's hasn't been featured on the insider tips? Thanks again.

CANOGAPARKGAL 11/19/2010 10:28:00 PM

    Yes, I saw it the other day. It's on the START page, at the bottom. I'll go there right now.

(I decide which "like" subject to choose each day by going there, closing my eyes, moving the cursor around, then I open my eyes and see which subject it is closer to that day. Kind of like spinning the Spark wheel.) emoticon

NOVELAFAN 10/3/2010 5:18:00 AM

    Wow, I didn't know this was here. Been on SP for a month now, and I've needed this a couple of times, but didn't know about it!!!

This will prove invaluable in tracking my overall calories for the week, and refresh my memory about previous days, or weeks.

Thank you so much.
ELA_ISLANDGIRL 9/22/2010 4:06:00 PM

    WOW I did not know about it either - LOVE IT!
GIGISPARKY 9/14/2010 3:08:00 PM

    Wow! This calendar is great. It will save me time planning meals -- I can go here and see what days I have hit the mark.

In case anyone has not found it, there is a big My SparkSummary Calendar on the left side of your Start page under your goals.

This website is amazing. I love earning all these points and stars. I am just a kid at heart, I guess.

OVERCOMER333 9/14/2010 3:03:00 PM

    Thanks for the great tip. emoticon
TSUEMOMMY 9/14/2010 10:28:00 AM

    For a newbie- this was great info! Thanks
NANCYBFULLER 8/10/2010 9:40:00 AM

    I have been a member for 2 1/2 years and I didn't know about this until I read your secret of success. Thank you!!!!
JURI62 7/9/2010 10:07:00 AM

    I've got to check this out! Thanks.
MOXIE22 6/12/2010 2:12:00 PM

    It really is like having your own "stars" calendar, just like in grade school. I'm liking this feature a lot!
LADYCALICO 6/9/2010 10:06:00 AM

    Thanks, I am another one who never paid attention to that calendar--it really shows your patterns, strong points, weak points, and puts things into perspective.
ATHENASPAL 6/6/2010 4:21:00 PM

    Thanks! I didn't even see it! There's so much on this site that I have yet to learn. :)
CANDOKATE 6/5/2010 12:49:00 PM

    Boy, I never saw this either. I've been a member since January. What a great find, thanks for sharing.
MARYANNGI 6/3/2010 11:04:00 PM

    I never even noticed. Thanks for passing this along. I want those gold stars and t be able to look back once in awhile.
BERNERQUILTS 6/3/2010 1:12:00 PM

    This did not used to be there-I don't usually go to my start page, I start with my log in points then off to the other
features. THANKS for bringing this to my attention.
Spark keeps evolving and improving, good thing others explore...
DAYHIKER 6/3/2010 6:47:00 AM

    I just came to post about this! I found it Monday and have posted it to my teams and on my blog. I love it!!
GRAMMAP1 6/2/2010 9:49:00 PM

    Yes, that is really a cool feature.

KDEW32 6/2/2010 4:34:00 PM

    I never knew about this tool. Thanks for bringing it to my attention! How cool is that.
PHOENIX_730 6/2/2010 4:18:00 PM

    I didn't even know this feature existed & it is emoticon ! emoticon for the inside info....LoL.
